Once again Lord March has hosted one spectacular event. Quickly becoming our favourite of the Goodwood events due to smaller crowds and a stronger emphasis on the racing. All of our drivers and our cars performed admirably. Dave Griffiths charged forward in the TR4 to make up 6 places in the Les Leston Cup. Ian Burford and Mike Haigh both drove with gusto and Shaun Rainford amazed everyone by hanging on to the leading pack in our Nash Metropolitan. Well done Goodwood, we cannot wait till next year.
Just one week until the racing season kicks off with Goodwood’s 73rd Members Meeting, and if last years event is anything to go by I expect it will be superb. The group 1 cars really stole the show last year but there is a lot more to look forward to. This year we will be running four cars. Dave Griffiths in the Triumph TR4 and Ian Burford in the Sebring Sprite will be running in the Les Leston Cup for pre-66 production sports cars. Mike Haigh with the Ford Falcon and our very own Shaun Rainford in the Nash Metropolitan will be running in the Sopwith Cup for 1950’s saloon cars. So come down and cheer us on and if you spot us in the paddock feel free to come and say hello. #73MM
Mark Sumpter’s Porsche 911 was on the rollers today getting tuned for Goodwood’s 73rd Members Meeting. We’ve tuned it to run with silencers and without as Goodwood allows (encourages) un-silenced racing cars. Yes, it is very loud. #73MM
Last week we were at Goodwood with Ian Burford getting some seat time in “Lumbertubs” ahead of the 73rd Members Meeting. It will be the first time they have raced at Goodwood so wanted to get in some practice. Ian will be competing for the Les Leston Trophy along with Dave Griffith’s at the 73rd next week. #73MM
Over the winter we have been giving the FIA Triumph TR4 of Dave Griffith’s a thorough refresh. The car has been painted in it’s original black with a new livery. New brightwork and interior trim has been fitted along with a new steering wheel. The engine has been out and has been refreshed ready for the season with a new camshaft from Piper Cams that should see a few extra ponies. We will be testing with Dave and Goodwood Motor Circuit on Tuesday 24th of February. Dave will be competing at the GRRC 73rd Members Meeting on the 21st and 22nd of March. #73MM
