The life of the first new Swift Cooper construction since 2010 got off to a unimpressive start. Its maiden race was also at Oulton Park and it was a fairly unremarkable first weekend. Luke Cooper ( right) picked up two 13th places as the team constantly changed the car, trying to find out what settings worked and what didn’t. Cooper admitted that driving a newer car – compared to his old SC92 – took some getting used to. A re-occurring engine issue which wasn’t identified until the end of the year didn’t help.
