Topcats Racing are very sad to report that Jem Marsh, co-founder of Marcos cars, died yesterday. Topcats Racing were privileged to have raced a number of cars that were created by him and still race 2 of his Marcos Mantis cars today. The team were also privileged to have met him on several occasions including when he waved the chequered flag as the Topacts Marcos Mantis cars crossed the line. The team are running both Marcos Mantis GT cars in the Britcar 24hr race on 25-26th April at Silverstone GP Circuit and will honour his memory with a memorial tribute displayed on each of the cars. RIP Jem. X

Hull based modes of transport would have been better to displace the tidal waters that flooded the Brands Hatch circuit at the weekend for the non-championship Britcar GT Open and Sports Car double header race.
Castle Combe provided the setting for a typically fraught and exciting race for spectators at the weekend. Combe is the 2nd fastest track in the UK and certainly the bumpiest and toughest on cars.
Neil Huggins, team driver and sometime roving reporter, gives us the lowdown at Rockingham Motor speedway….
The Topcats Racing team were ecstatic yesterday when all three of their cars crossed the line after a gruelling 24hr race dominated by heavy rain which started in the first half an hour of the race and remained relentless to the chequered flag.
Come and support Topcats Racing for the next round of the Britcar GT Endurance Championship at Castle Combe.
