The RTCC team enjoyed a highly successful weekend at this wonderful meeting.

Le Mans Classic 2014

Richard and long term customer Roger Whiteside competed in ‘Tiny’ (1954 Morgan +4) and a 1953 Jowett Jupiter which they co-own. Both cars were racing in Plateau 2 for 1947 – 56 cars. There are three 43 minute races for all six Plateaus (or grids) spread over 24 hours and all are over subscribed for this rare chance to race on the full 14km circuit. Richard raced ‘Tiny’ in the 2 day-time races and the Jupiter at night with Roger doing the reverse. Track conditions changed from 30 degrees of heat for qualifying to torrential rain for the last race on Sunday morning. At the Classic, results are provided for scratch overall results and for performance index by class and overall, both for individual races and all 3 races combined. Richard and Roger were delighted to finish 2nd overall on the combined performance index and 10th overall on scratch in Tiny. The 1500 Jupiter, still running in a new engine, finished 32nd on scratch and 31st on performance index running reliably throughout in an amazing grid of 80 rare and valuable cars. Both cars finished well ahead of the Gane / Arnold Jupiter and the Morgan’s of Sebba/Doyle/Emberson, with whom we shared the pits and had a great deal of fun!
