EX-BTCC Chevrolet wins on comeback
The ex-rob Potter British Touring Car Championship Chevrolet Camaro made a winning return to racing in the Gerry Marshall Trophy at the Goodwood Members’ Meeting.
The car, raced when new in 1971 in the colours of Think Automotive, has been acquired and completely restored by Grahame Bryant. He picked up a 10-second penalty for contact in the sprint race, dropping him to fifth, but then shared victory with his son Oliver in the main Sunday encounter.
“We got it as a worn-out racing car and it had just been stored for 40 years with bits being robbed off it,” said Bryant Sr, who decided to source a Camaro after last year’s Members’ Meeting. “We’ve done it exactly as it was in period.”
More outings are planned this season.
