Lackford moves to OSS for his 45th anniversary racing season
Club racer Norman Lackford is switching to the OSS Championship this season as he marks his 45th year of continuous racing.
He made his debut in a Ford Anglia in April 1969 and will be racing a Radical PR6 this year. Lackford has raced in a number of different categories, including Special Saloons and the Castle Combe GT Series, and has picked up around 100 trophies in that time.
“I saved up for a Ford Anglia that I rebuilt as a race car I drove to the circuits, took out the seats, removed the silencer, changed the wheels, got scrutineered, had someone paint my number on the roundels – and then went racing!” he said.
“We’ve always made our own cars until the current Radical, and Rachel [his wife] is a superb fibreglass laminator with infinite patience.”
OSS championship coordinator Alan Jenkins added: “OSS is pleased to welcome Norman and Rachel in this, their 45th year of racing. Although a debut driver for the championship, Norman will be on the grid and in the paddock alongside friends both old and new, to help both him and Rachel celebrate this milestone.”
