WELL DONE SAM!

GOODWOOD MEMBERS MEETING 22ND MARCH

CONGRATULATIONS to RTCC customer Sam Spindlow for his excellent drive in the Les Leston Cup race at Goodwood.  Sam joined the RTCC team as a novice only 2 years ago and has been racing a Roadster in the Morgan Challenge to learn race craft.  Driving a RTCC prepared 1961 +4 TR for the first time on Dunlop Crossply tyres Sam took it easy in practice but still qualified off the back row.  2 other +4’s were entered for Mark Shears and Simon Gurney, sadly Simons engine misbehaved and he was not able to take the start.  As the 28 car grid got away Sam made an excellent start and was soon dicing with the Shears Morgan that had qualified mid-field.  Sadly Mark spun at the chicane and lost a lot of time, but Sam went on to have a great battle with Barry Sidery-Smith’s Triumph and Andy Shepherd’s Daimler SP250 to finish a fine 13th overall, the little black Morgan performing perfectly throughout.
