Win Percy

Many of you will have heard of Win Percy's lifting accident some time ago and will be distressed to hear that he is, for the moment, wheelchair bound.

However, we are delighted to report that he is managing one Gary Pearson (!) in the BRDC championship in 2004 and, if many of his supporters have their way, will be racing again in the not too distant future.

You will also be very pleased to know that the Club has made him the very first Honorary Member as such an outstanding driver and ambassador for the wonderful Group C cars.

Silverstone Press Test Day Report - November 2003

We took advantage of a full test day at Silverstone International Circuit to invite MotorSport and Autosport to test some of the more modest and yet historic Group C cars. The idea was to promote the ownership of lower budget cars in an attempt to attract greater ownership and thus larger grids.

We also wanted to promote the club after what has been a very good first year at a time when many racing 'series' have struggled to survive.

Thanks to John and Gary Pearson we were able to field four cars for them to test. In addition we took the TakeFuji 962 for general interest and a photo shoot for Classic and Sportscar.

We hope to have articles in MotorSport and Classic and Sportscar in the March/April issue.
