His­toric F3 driver adds TVR for Guards cam­paign

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

His­toric For­mula 3 and Mar­cos GT racer Peter Thomp­son has added a TVR Grif­fith to his sta­ble and will con­test this week­end’s Guards Tro­phy opener at Cas­tle Combe.

Thomp­son has ac­quired the ex-kevin Kivlochan car and had his first race in it at the Good­wood Mem­bers’ Meet­ing last month.

“I wanted a GT car I could race with the HSCC and in Europe,” said Thomp­son. “I had a few laps of test­ing in it at Good­wood and it’s fan­tas­tic. But it’s quite heavy and more pow­er­ful than I’m used to.”

Dorset-based Thomp­son has also shared Chevron B8s with Charles Al­li­son in Guards Tro­phy races.
