2017 DUNLOP TVR CHALLENGE

CWR/DG Sportscars owner Mike Luck took his Class C Chimaera to top honours in the 2017 Dunlop TVR Challenge at the weekend. Mike went into the last three rounds held at the Cheshire circuit, with a slim lead in the series from fellow TVR specialist owner Jason Clegg. Although the weather was changeable all day, causing some difficult tyre choices, Mike did enough to maintain the points lead and secure the series.

CLASSIC WORLD RACING WITH ONE2ONE MOTORSPORT EXCEL AT THE 2017 SILVERSTONE CLASSIC

Redditch based Classic World Racing with one2one Motorsport prepared two BMWs for the Jet Super Touring Car Trophy at the prestigious 2017 Silverstone Classic. Their regular black BMW 2002ti, which is rapidly gaining a reputation for its giant-killing exploits, was joined in the Group A class by a freshly built Group 1½ BMW 320 to be driven by team owner Mike Luck in both 20-minute races over the weekend, while driving duties in the 2002ti were shared by former F1 pilot Mike Wilds (Saturday) and experienced GT and Historic racer Calum Lockie (Sunday). 

With Calum away racing a Ferrari at Brands Hatch, qualifying was in the hands of the two Mikes. The brand new 320 was quick straight out of the box, with Mike Luck claiming P1 in class, while Mike Wilds secured P3 in his class in the 2002 on his first drive with the team.

Buoyed by their strong qualifying performance, the team were looking forward to Race 1 late on Saturday afternoon. The threatened rain hadn’t arrived, so they weren’t going to have any advantage over the other more powerful cars around them. From the start, Mike Luck became embroiled in a battle for the class lead with Robin Ward’s faster starting three-litre Capri, a tussle which was resolved on the final lap when Mike snatched the win by 0.378 seconds, taking fastest lap into the bargain! Meanwhile things weren’t going quite so well for Mike Wilds, for after moving up to P2 in class the car developed a misfire after two laps, with the resultant pit stop to rectify a loose plug lead dropping Mike from contention. 

Sunday’s Race 2 was run in very different conditions on a soaking wet track. Calum was now in the black 2002, but forced to start from the back as grid positions were decided by results from Race 1. This didn’t deter him, and after two sighting laps behind the pace car he was off, vaulting past 11 cars on the first lap, and eventually securing a dominant class win and 18th overall after pulling off a last lap pass on Touring Car legend Steve Soper’s Bastos Rover 3500 SD1. Mike Luck in the 320 was never seriously challenged, taking a comfortable class win and fastest lap to complete a perfect weekend – pole, two wins and two fastest laps, a superb effort in a car making its very first appearance on the track. 

Team Principal Mike Norman-Smith said: “We are absolutely delighted with the weekend’s results. It was a real team effort, and the two Mikes and Calum drove superbly to embarrass the big boys in two of the oldest and smallest-engined cars on the grid. Our Lester Owen engines ran like clockwork and we couldn’t be happier for ourselves and our sponsors The Claver Baggers, Fuel Safe, and Oscar Jacobs Cars”.

2 OUT OF 3 CLASS WINS AT CASTLE COMBE 

CWR MD Mike Luck continued to dominate the stock 4ltr class of the Dunlop TVR Challenge at Castle Combe last weekend. 
The first race was a straight forward affair while the second round was started on slicks with light rain threatening to disrupt proceedings. Mike took advantage of the conditions to take his car from 6th to 2nd from the lights. Pole sitter Tim Davies found some grip to come through to take the lead which left Luck to challenge the Stra8 Six Tuscan driven by Jason Clegg. Mike managed to ease ahead of Jason to retake second overall as the rain continued, however, the rain stopped and conditions improved which allowed Jason to use the power of the Tuscan to pull ahead of Mike’s Chimaera to the flag. 
The final race of the weekend saw Mike completely fluff his start which left him chasing Andy Race for class honours. Mike managed to catch Andy up but the race was shortened to allow a medical helicopter to land (to attend an injured driver in a previous race) thereby robbing Mike of the chance of making it 3 out of 3. 
The series finishes with three rounds at Oulton Park on October 7th.
