Race of Remembrance

There was drama over the weekend for the Milltek Sport Team that had invited guest driver’s Sir Chris Hoy and Jon-Allan Butterworth to drive for them alongside Tom Onslow-Cole, Paul White  and Jade Edwards at the Mission Motorsport flagship event, the Race of Remembrance. The Milltek Sports MKVI Golf developed an issue that couldn’t be resolved but a solution was found when Milltek Sports Managing Director Steve Pound suggested the team could use their track day MKVI instead, so with only hours to spare the Golf was converted to a race ready car, allowing the team to go on to finish 3rd in class and recording the fastest lap of the race.

The event held at the at the Anglesey Circuit by Mission Motorsport, the armed forces motorsport charity, went on to be won by Synchro Motorsport, a Honda factory based volunteer team.

Also competing was Nathalie McGloin with the Spinal Track team. Nathalie who was involved in an accident at 16 and is paralysed from the chest down, has just completed her first season in the Porsche Club Championship. The Spinal Track team is an all spinal injured race team, they finished in second position in class and 10th over all.
