We were pleased to be asked to attend the Silverstone Classic preview and test day with Ian Burford. We brought with us the Ginetta G4 and the Bill Thomas Cheetah. Despite the torrential down pour in the morning that weather did eventually subside and we had some good track time.
The 2018 race season is already in full swing. The calendar is filling up fast with race entries up and down the country. Last week saw us at Snetterton with Ian Burford and his 1965 Ginetta G4 racing in the HSCC’s Historic Road Sports.
Last weekend was the HSCC’s Finals at Silverstone. We were there to look after the Tuckers in the Shelby GT350R and Ashley GT and Ian Burford in the Ginetta G4. A successful weekend all around. Larry and Ian had a huge battle for most of the race and Laurie really got the most out of the little Ashley GT getting quicker with every outing.
We’ve got a double header this weekend. We are loading and heading up to Donington Park today for the HRDC race tomorrow then back down to Silverstone for the HSCC meeting at Silverstone. Charles Rainford will be competing with the HRDC in is Lenham Sprite and in Sundays race at Silverstone we will have Ian Burfords in his Ginetta G4 and Larry Tucker in his Ashley GT.
Sunday 10th of April saw the start of the HSCC Historic Road Sports Championship. We were there with Larry Tucker and the Ashley GT and Ian Burford with his new Ginetta G4. Both had a good weekend, Larry in long battle with a Lotus Elan and Ian with a run through the pack from 18th up to 7th after being pushed off on a corner. We will be back for the next round at Silverstone on May 21st. Both photos courtesy of Joshua Barrett.
