Thruxton race report

21 September 2019

Very few cars from our series entered this round where we were the guests of the Classic Sports Car Club at Britain’s fastest circuit, Thruxton. Those that did not come missed a wonderful day’s racing in warm sun, excellent organisation and very good vibes on track and in the paddock. Martin Reynolds said “Today’s racing was the closest, scariest, fastest racing I had this year. Was seriously epic! I cannot wait to see the video footage from both cars. Today was proper racing!!!!!!”  Simeon Chodosh, similarly “In both races Martin and I were literally bumper to bumper from each other with some excellent defending by both. Seriously great track and some absolutely quality racing.”

Read Marcus Bicknell’s report on what his datalogger told him out the back on a 100 mph lap. 140mph through Church? No… 110.  But up the hill towards home… 550 hp and 150.6mph. An image of the data trace and Marcus’s notes are at thruxton_ascar_data_21sept2019

Don’t miss the photo at the end of the report (sorry the Chodoshes were not in the group pic) which shows not only the two Stigs but also our wheelchair-bound friend Charles Carter who took action photos at Graham Hill Bend (see www.facebook.com/pg/berniessportsracing) were taken by wheelchair bound Charles Carter (far left in the awards presentation photo). He campaigns for Autoimmune Awareness and is delighted if you wear his sticker on your car. He wrote to me this morning “Got to love the Bernie’s V8’s. You’re all so friendly and I feel like I fit in with all of you 🙂. Feel free to send these photos out to the gang. Am going to have to get one of the Bernie’s V8’s stickers for my chair lol with Honorary over the top of it lol cause I don’t think I could fit a V8 on this chair although it would be fun lol”

I hereby declare Charles Carter an honorary member of Bernie’s Sports Racing & V8s and will provide him the suitable logo stickers!

p.s. we were and are campaigning and fund raising for The Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM) which is leading a movement against male suicide, the single biggest killer of men under 45 in the UK. https://www.thecalmzone.net.
