Hill­climb com­peti­tor Goodyear switches to racing with Lo­tus 59

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

Af­ter 25 years com­pet­ing on the hills, Mark Goodyear has switched to racing with the ex-an­thony Ross Lo­tus 59.

Goodyear lives only two miles from Shel­s­ley Walsh in Worces­ter­shire. He com­peted in Club­mans cars and sin­gle-seaters in hill­climbs, shar­ing the cars with his wife An­nie.

Goodyear de­cided to fi­nally try his hand at racing and has joined the Clas­sic Racing Car grid in the 1600cc twin-cam pow­ered Lo­tus.

“It is just a to­tal change of scene and a mas­sive learn­ing curve,” said Goodyear. “Every track is new to me and it is a stun­ning car.”

Af­ter a cou­ple of out­ings late last sea­son, he is now plan­ning a fuller pro­gramme this year.
