Topcats Racing are pleased to announce that their team driver Steve Glynn won the Britcar Trophy Championship at the final race of the season at Thruxton on Saturday in the TVR Sagaris.

Topcats Racing took over the running and preparation of the car before the start of this season with an overhaul and converting from LS3 to LS7 power ready to mount a serious challenge for the championship.

At the last race of the season , Glynn was on top form despite impending operations on damaged shoulder muscles! Wrestling a car with 500+hp and no power steering around Britain’s fastest and bumpiest circuit singled him out as this year’s deserving champion.

Glynn finished 5th overall in race one after suffering a tyre blow at 150mph putting paid to his chances of a win but an outright win in race two only served to prove his status.

Glynn will have revelled too in the fact that he beat his two Topcats Racing team owners Charlotte and Warren Gilbert sharing a car each with Jon Harrison and Rob Wilson respectively in their sister Marcos Mantis GT cars in the same class.

Duo, Gilbert and Harrison (car 54) failed to finish race one with a broken output shaft before Gilbert could to take over from Harrison.

Gilbert and Wilson in the sister car (60) were on point and finished second overall to the Class 1 Riley Daytona Prototype.

With Charlotte Gilbert starting race 2 from the back of the grid following race 1’s DNF, she made a great start managing to make her way back up to 3rd overall in time to hand over to Jon Harrison who maintained position to the chequered flag.

Warren Gilbert started from P2 on the grid behind the Riley, determined to pass the Riley for leading glory, maintained the lead for a lap and a half only to half spin at Noble, lose 3 places, regather and repass to catch back up with the Riley.

The Riley soon retired and Gilbert found himself leading the race as he pitted to hand over to Wilson. Wilson’s run didn’t last long as he too suffered a puncture dropping them down the board to finish 4th overall.
