Donington Aug 2007
Donington was the venue for a 2 hour Britcar race in the Emotional Engineering Vauxhall Monaro.
Our own Anthony Mott was joined in the car by experienced racer Alan Bonner.
Having qualified a lowly 24th due to coolant problems it was to be a long hard race to regain position.
The large grid of cars and extremely hot temperatures also added to the driver demands.
Alan started the race and did a great job of avoiding the usual melee at the start, he made up place after place before handing over the car to Anthony just before the half way mark. By this point we were in 9th place.
Anthony then proceeded to gain more places and drove to the flag, gaining 6th place overall on the last lap and narrowly missing out on a class podium.
Team boss Alan Orchard - “Magny Cours was our best result, but this is against credible competitors, and the car has been faultless. I’ve got to say, too, that the drivers have been awesome” he added at the end of the race. ,
