Topcats Racing were delighted with Chris Pearson’s race results on Saturday having imported his lovely Lotus Cortina from Australia last Summer. He entrusted the car to Topcats Racing who set about preparing the car, ready for racing this season.
He had only driven the car a couple of hundred metres on site at the workshop to try it out before going straight into qualifying for the Classics Sports Cars Club’s Historic ‘Swinging 60’s’ race at a very wet Snetterton. Pearson qualified a fantastic 4th in class and finished the 40 minute race as a solo driver with 3rd in class.
Pearson will build on a very solid first result and we look forward to seeing him receive plenty of silverware in the very near future as his race season progresses.
What a monster event yesterday with the V8UK Full Power Launch 2016! This year’s event exceeded even last years numbers with over 300 cars arriving at Topcats Racing’s workshop facility near Aylesbury, Bucks!
With fantastic weather again, pumping music, V8 noise, food, drink and a dyno to enthral the crowds, which by the way was won by a stunning Camaro blowing the away the nearest rival by 125bhp with a staggering 749bhp!, it was impossible not to have a great time. The highlight? The convoy which may well be one of the biggest in the UK! It snaked up and over the Buckinghamshire hills and through the villages bringing people out of their houses to investigate the rumble! The response was great with waves and thumbs up! Thank you to all the drivers who drove carefully and with respect en route and back to Topcats Racing to enjoy the afternoon in the sunshine.
We would like to thank the boys from the V8UK Club for allowing us to host again this year.
A very big thank you to all those who took the time to make their cars beautiful and bring them to us for the event, some of whom had travelled far to get here. We were delighted to see our TVR, Corvette and Camaro guys arrive in force as well as all others who brought their amazing machines for everyone to view in wonderment!
