Thankfully bad weather was kept at bay for the 75th Members Meeting. Although the track was damp for qualifying the rest of the weekend was dry and mild. We campaigned 5 cars in the Weslake Cup with considerable interest in a 6th. Shaun and Charles Rainford qualified in 8th and 9th whilst Ian Burford, Mike Haigh and Larry Tucker qualified 10th, 12th and 17th. The race was fairly chaotic with a yellow flag, a red flag and a restart. Charles made his way up to second place before the restart but was pulled off the grid whilst the marshals were looking for an oil leak. Shaun restarted the race in 3rd but lost the podium to our customer Mike Haigh. Ian Burford and Larry Tucker finished the race in 9th and 13th. The winning Lenham GT of James Colburn had the original Lenham bodywork repaired here at CCK with repair sections taken from original Lenham moulds. We also supplied a bespoke roll cage Quaife dog engagement gear box and limited slip differential with our solid pinion spacer.
Our favourite race weekend of the year is Goodwood’s GRRC Members Meeting. This year is the 75th event and promises to be the best yet. The Weslake Cup is a race for A-series powered Sports and GT cars and in which we will have the pleasure of running five of them. Starting with our very own Shaun Rainford in the intimidating Lenham GT “SS1800” returning to Goodwood for the first time since it’s 2nd place podium at the 2010 Revival. Shaun’s son Charles Rainford makes his Goodwood debut in his red and blue Lenham Le Mans and Mike Haigh rounds out the Lenham contingent in his sage green Green Lenham Le Mans. Ian Burford returns to Goodwood with his Sebring Sprite “Lumbertubs” and Larry Tucker will also make his Goodwood debut in his Ashley GT.
