Sandy to compete in first round of sprint championship
Published on: 03 Mar 2015
MANGOTSFIELD racer Sandy Smith took to the lanes in the first NavScatter of the season. After a few hours in the darkness, Sandy arrived at the pub to hand in his answer card. When the points were added up, he and his partner, Sharon, had managed a 6th place finish. Animated stories at the bar duly followed.
Sandy has put his entry in for the first two rounds of the Vincenzo & Son Bristol MX5 Challenge, along with Downend residents Phil Oliver and James Hurford. They will all compete at Chepstow Racecourse on March 1 before the Great Western Sprint at Castle Combe on March 21. They will line up alongside the other MX5 competitors in the event, which is the first round of the British Sprint Championship. Joining them will be Andy Laurence in his ADR sports racer, which is receiving a new aerodynamic front diffuser to aid performance. The field will contain a mix of exotic racing cars powered by Formula One engines, highly modified road cars and some standard production vehicles.
Entry for spectators is free, including paddock transfer, and the drivers would welcome some local support. Those willing to volunteer as marshals (no experience necessary) will receive a free lunch and the best seat in the house.
