Wow what an aMAYzing month this was.
Euge was busier than ever coaching a variety of drivers from complete beginners to complete pros. Included in those great drivers were Robert Thomas & Simon Bonham driving at Snetterton in the Fun Cup Six Hour Race. Finishing in 2nd place just 1.5 seconds behind the winners Team Eco. This was Rob & Simon’s first ever podium after being so close on several occasions throughout 2014. The outstanding performance now puts them in the Fun Cup Championship lead ahead of several professional racing drivers including Nigel Greensall and Anthony Reid. Anthony’s racing CV is pretty extensive so well done to Robert & Simon and keep up the great drives!!
On a more personal note Euge did his first race in over a year teaming up with his long time friend and protege Mike Whitaker driving Mike’s Mustang in The Donington Historic Festival. Wet weather (Euge in his element) made the qualifying seem simple whereby Euge claimed pole position – by over a second – with serious competition from Lotus Cortinas and Ford Falcons. The race was started by Mike who drove superbly in the first stint – followed by a brilliant pit stop whereby Euge took over to finish the race in first place by a staggering 20 second lead. Great drive boys:)
Riding the crest of a wave, Mike then had some intensive coaching with Eugene prior to his next race meeting two weeks later on the Brands GP Circuit. He scored brilliant wins in both the pre-66 GT race in his TVR Griffith, and won again in the Pre-66 Touring Car race in his Mustang!
Another of Euge’s great friends was on hand to take more brilliant photos. Thanks Chris for your continued support!
And finally the news alluded to in previous newsletters is out. Euge has again been innovative and had one of his Mazda MX5 race cars converted with full DUAL controls (including all three pedals). The car has been tested in the workshop and at low speeds on the road and will make its debut on track next month.
This is the only car in the UK to have dual steering and obviously opens up all sorts of opportunities for drivers new and existing.
So if you want to be one of the first to try out this amazing car please contact Eugene on firstname.lastname@example.org guaranteed driving improvement or simply have a look round the website. Exciting times await!!
