Congratulation to Thomas & Laura on there wedding on the 28th May
Croft saw the first snow of the year with George resuming his battle in the BMW MINIs final race of the season .The car fitted with the new side skirt protection preformed faultlessly through the day securing a second row in the final race . Kiefer secured the final win with George in second .
Sunday saw a rise in temperature bringing the rain to Croft for the Grand Prix .The day started with a major high speed crash between George & Fons leaving Fons car severely damaged & George’s missing a front end .The team sprung into action and rebuilt the front of the BMW getting it out for the next heat securing a 2nd in the final .
Many thank’s to all the team for all their effort over the weekend, roll on the 24th.
GET BETTER SOON TERRY WE MISSED YOU .
The weather held for a fine day in sunny Wales with no rain .
Tom held it together all day on the last meet for classic mini’s in rallycross by finishing with a 1st in the final to end the 2012 series.
Mark had a hard day after breaking a throttle cable in heat one & after dropping a valve in heat two.He then had to change the engine head making it out for the final finishing 5th but getting a 1st for determination from the team.
George finished 4th in the BMW Mini, with a day dogged with car damage. The new engine proved to be working well since the change but this was marred by the driving standards of other drivers, similar to that of banger racing hopefully not to be repeated .
Due to the end of Classic mini’s in rallycross 459 will now be retiring .
459 The legend & drivers
The car built by Revival’s Motorsport took Shelley Wakeling to championship wins in 2007 /2008. Two years later George Edwardes won the 2010 championship with Tom Edwardes his older brother winning the 2011 championship.
A fitting end in the history of 459 a legend and a credit to its engineer Richard Wakeling & all his team at Revivals Motorsport, Terry,Wayne & Mark.
