Mcdonald given car to compete in WHT
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.
