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