Topcats Racing have been invited to get together a group of 20 TVR’s and Marcos’ to take part in a 2 lap parade around the Silverstone GP circuit at the Silverstone 24hr Race on Sunday 26th April. There will be many other groups participating, each headed by a pace car. If you would like to take part in this rare and exciting opportunity under the Topcats Racing banner the cost will be £20 per car plus entry fee. If you are interested, please contact me by PM and I can detail the cost benefits. Each driver will get a free Topcats Racing baseball cap.
We hope that you will be rooting for us as we will be running Steve Glynn in his TVR Sagaris which has undergone a major rebuild over the winter including the installation of an LS7 engine. He will be competing in the Britcar Trophy race alongside team mate Neil Huggins in the Lamborghini Super Trofeo car. Then for the main event, the 24hr Race, we will be running both Marcos Mantis GT cars and awaiting final confirmation to run the Mosler. A busy and exciting weekend!
We are pleased to finally announce our Saturday Club dates for 2015. There are fewer dates than we had hoped as we have a very busy race calendar this year. In addition to the V8UK Full Power Launch on the 12th April and another event which is under wraps at the moment for 31st May, we are excited to invite you all to the following events:
Saturday Club 9am-1pm : 4th July Topcats Club Silverstone Trackday : Monday 10th August* Saturday Club 9am-1pm : 26th September Saturday Club 9am-1pm : 31st October
Our Saturday Club events will be themed with different, interesting activities and features for visitors.
* our Trackday event will be planned around the input we receive from those that would like to participate and will include drivers own cars on track / fast lap rides / driving our race cars on track / instruction / team support / consensus on amount of track time for drivers depending on costs. At this point we would appreciate your opinion on whether this is something you would be interested in doing and what you would like to do / how you would like to see the day arranged. For those that book and wish to have their cars noise tested and inspected we could arrange this to be done at the Saturday Club event in July or by prior arrangement. More details will be available as we plan them so look out for our updates. We look forward to seeing many of you this year!
Super Trofeo car in Sepang
Accomplished GT racer, Neil Huggins, has taken delivery of a Lamborghini LP560-4 Super Trofeo car from Dusseldorf, Germany to race competitively with the hope for some victories in 2015. A real enthusiast of the marque, Huggins is looking forward to the new challenge. The car will be run by Huggins long-time race partner, Topcats Racing, who have run the driver for many years in their Marcos Mantis GT car in Britcar, GT Cup and several European races as well as Huggins own 1965 TVR Grantura in HSCC.
Well renowned for his exceptional turn of pace on the UK endurance racing scene, Huggins should show well in his debut outing at Silverstone GP circuit in the Lamborghini Super Trofeo on 22-24th May.
Huggins intends to up the ante with his return to the GT Cup and Britcar too with the more technically advanced machine where he is already used to contesting at the head of the field.
Huggins will be putting plenty of miles under his belt in the meantime though with his ‘last hurrah’ in the Marcos Mantis GT car and looking for top honours in the Silverstone Britcar 24hr race from 24-26th April to start the season. The team have also recently announced that they will be running the Mosler MT900R for the 24hr spectacle and currently have drives available.
