Mar­cus still loving that win­ning feel­ing

MO­TOR RAC­ING

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

MAR­CUS Bick­nell shows no signs of slow­ing down at the age of 66.

The Chal­font St Giles mo­tor racer won the Bri­tish Au­to­mo­bile Rac­ing Club’s Club­mans Proto Cham­pi­onship by win­ning both races at Thrux­ton on Satur­day.

Rac­ing in his Mal­lock Mk35 EB Honda Proto front-en­gined sports car, he just man­aged to hold off Alan Cook in another Mal­lock in both races.

Bick­nell has been rac­ing in Club­mans since 2000 and did not won a race un­til 2012, but like a fine wine gets bet­ter with age and has now won the cham­pi­onship in both 2013 and 2014.

He joked: “Now I’ve done it for the sec­ond year run­ning, per­haps I can re­tire!”
