Thomas makes Shadow debut and now wants race outings in 2016
Preparation team boss Sam Thomas had his first taste of DFV power at Goodwood and now hopes to race the ex-jan Lammers Shadow DN9 later this season.
Thomas only started racing a couple of years ago and prepares a range of historic race cars, including the Shadow, which is owned by Michael Tuke.
“This was my first time in an F1 car,” he said after Saturday’s demonstration session. “I plan to do some races and I’m using Nick Padmore as a driver coach to try and get up to speed.”
Padmore drove the 1979 car in Sunday’s demonstration and Thomas is targeting the Silverstone Classic for his race debut.
