Thomas makes Shadow de­but and now wants race out­ings in 2016

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

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.
