Cowley to re­turn af­ter swift re­pair job

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Bill Cowley will re­turn to rac­ing at Cad­well Park this week­end fol­low­ing a huge ac­ci­dent that nearly wrote off his car.

Cowley was in­volved in a heavy crash dur­ing the sec­ond 750 Formula race at Mal­lory Park in June while chas­ing cham­pi­onship ri­val Robin Gear­ing ( MN, June 22).

Since then, ex­ten­sive re­pairs have taken place on the Cowley Mk4 car – which is of spe­cial sen­ti­men­tal value be­cause it was built by Cowley’s grand­fa­ther.

The re­pairs have taken four weeks and meant he missed the races at Snetterton last month, but Cowley was sur­prised by how well the car had stood up fol­low­ing such a high im­pact.

Cowley, who has tested the re­built car, said: “The car ran just as badly as it did be­fore so that’s quite good!

“I’m just go­ing to take the next races as they come and en­joy be­ing back out there.”

Cowley is 63 points be­hind Gear­ing in the ti­tle chase.
