Local car enthusiast Tim Abbott has spent some time racing Caterham’s but really wanted to get into something historic. He has consider many vehicles and at last the right opportunity has come along in the form of a 1965 BMW 1800ti. The ex-Richard Postins car is a well campaigned and successful racer having competed at Goodwood Revival and winning a U2TC championship. The car has not been used for a couple of seasons so the first thing to do is give it a thorough prep before Tim takes the car out at Brands Hatch for a shake down. We welcome Tim to the CCK family and look forward to racing with him. With Tim’s new acquisition we now have two BMW 1800ti’s to run next season.
We would like to welcome Stuart Patterson and Paul Bartley on board with their recently acquired 1965 BMW 1800ti FIA race car. The car was originally built by Laranca Engineering and raced by Martin Hines. The car hadn’t turned a wheel in a number of years so we have been through it thoroughly and got it prepped for its first outing, a track day at Silverstone last Monday. The car performs very well and we are looking forward to supporting Stuart and Paul when they campaign the car this season.
