Ginetta signs new deal to keep GT4 and Ju­niors on TOCA pack­age 750 For­mula stal­wart Cow­ley makes suc­cess­ful de­but in Lo­costs at Snet­ter­ton

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

750 For­mula reg­u­lar Bill Cow­ley made an ap­pear­ance in the 750MC Lo­cost cham­pi­onship at Snet­ter­ton last week­end.

Cow­ley, the 750 For­mula run­nerup in 2014, traded his 40 year-old Cow­ley MKIV for a Cater­ham Seven and par­tic­i­pated in the 38-car grid for the first time.

He qual­i­fied sev­enth on his first out­ing in the car and took fourth in the open­ing en­counter af­ter Danny An­drew and Tim Neat were dis­qual­i­fied, but did not start the sec­ond race.

“I re­ally en­joyed the ex­pe­ri­ence,” said Cow­ley. “I knew it was go­ing to be mad but it was ab­so­lutely bonkers. The driv­ing stan­dards need to be looked at if I’m hon­est, but it hasn’t put me off from hav­ing an­other crack at it.”

Cow­ley will con­tinue to com­pete in 750 For­mula, but is con­sid­er­ing pur­chas­ing his own Lo­cost for fur­ther out­ings, hav­ing bor­row­ing Sian Stafford Atkin­son’s car for the Snet­ter­ton been a fix­ture on the BTCC bill for close to a decade and the GT5 Chal­lenge will also con­tinue to guest at two week­ends next year: Thrux­ton and Knock­hill.

Ginetta chair­man Lawrence Tom­lin­son said: “I am de­lighted to ex­tend our part­ner­ship with TOCA for a fur­ther three years and look for­ward to see­ing the cham­pi­onships con­tinue to flour­ish as part of one of the United King­dom’s finest mo­tor­sport pack­ages.”
