Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Trevor Stiles, for­mer Ly­d­den For­mula Ford cham­pion and Cham­pion of Brands run­ner-up, was back be­hind the wheel of his Van Diemen RF80 for Satur­day’s Test Day at Ly­d­den.

The Heath­field res­i­dent, 71, was there to over­see his son Ben’s first time out in a rac­ing car. Trevor has not raced since 1995.

Ben, 21 and a stu­dent of mo­tor­sport en­gi­neer­ing at Bath Uni­ver­sity, said: “Dad’s en­thu­si­asm is in­fec­tious and the sport has al­ways at­tracted me any­way, so it’s ex­cit­ing to be a part of it.

“I had a cou­ple of slides (on a dry track) but I re­ally en­joyed it.”

The pair plan to race to­gether in New Zealand dur­ing the Bri­tish win­ter.
