After a huge crash at Don­ing­ton threat­ened to ruin the rest of the sea­son, Ge­orge Mcdon­ald has been given a car to com­pete in the Wal­ter Hayes Tro­phy.

Mcdon­ald will drive a sim­i­lar car to the one that he crashed at Don­ing­ton in Au­gust , after Glen Finn from Emax Mo­tor­sport stepped in.

“It’s a Swift SC92. It be­longs to Glen Finn who runs Emax mo­tor­sport,” said Mcdon­ald. “They’re based in Ply­mouth and run cars in the Cas­tle Combe FF1600 cham­pi­onship. He used to own my car.

“When I had my ac­ci­dent he rang me up and said I’ve got all the bits you’ll need, and he said ‘pay me as and when you can af­ford it’ which is re­ally good of him.

“He said in chat­ting, as he knows I usu­ally do the Hayes, ‘I’ve got a car here which is ready to go with a fresh en­gine if you want to do it’.

“I thought the crash would be it for this year. It’ll be nice to be back out.”

Mcdon­ald’s Wal­ter Hayes Tro­phy was un­done last year by a loose plug lead in the en­gine.

Mcdon­ald thought his sea­son was over after this dra­matic shunt
