EX-BTCC Chevro­let wins on come­back

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

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.
