ZANDVOORT DOUBLE HEADDER

Congratulations to Chris Bridle on getting fastest lap of race 5 and the 195 FunBikes car finishing 5th from the back of the grid! 👊🏻 you all massively deserved it!

Hawthorn 251, all did brilliantly and should be proud of the results despite competitor contact causing some issues.

Team7 249 gave us so much grief this weekend....but Frustratingly had the pace.... their time will soon come 👌🏻

With motorsport you can always experience problems! And we certainly had our share, Problem after problem.... but still all cars finished and everyone had a great weekend regardless.

Thank you to our wonderful mechanics that worked their socks off all weekend , especially throughout Saturday night/early hours which was a troublesome evening to get the cars ready for Sunday’s race.

Lastly, thank you to the drivers and rest of the team for being understanding and supportive, when you are up against it, its really is appreciated.

Lastly Congratulations to all of the podium this weekend! FunCup is not easy to win! And our friends FNS for Team of the day 🏆

Roll on Anglesey!!

Brands Hatch - Round 1

It was great to be back and see everyone at Fun Cup this weekend, our team and mechanics were amazing as always (thank you) and although we had a few mechanical issues, the drivers did really well and all cars finished and were on top form.

Chris and Ed Bridle quickly settled back in car 195 with owner driver Jon King, leading the race at one point before an issue with the drive shaft causing them to come in to the garage for a few laps. Novice drivers John Iley and Edward Worthington had an excellent drive with Rod Barrett in car 251 putting in some good lap times and Novice Sam Brown joined his experienced father Alan and brother Rory in car 249 - I’m sure it won’t be long before he is putting in the same times as his brother!

Looking forward to Oulton already 😃

Congratulations to Uvio, PLR and 2Rent Dominos on their podiums and FNS for team of the day. Well deserved. 🏆

Additional car this season

Team 7 Racing are pleased to announce that they will be running an additional car this season.

Team7 Hawthorns - Car 251 will join the Team7 cars of 195 and 249 at the season opener at Brands Hatch.

The 251 car was recently acquired due to its unexpected availability, hence a late change of plans to run 251 this season.

The 251 registered driver line-up includes experienced ex TVR Tuscan, British GT, HSCC Jaguar Classic and Britcar GT driver Rod Barrett who will be joined by team mates John Iley and Ed Worthington with Team 7 Boss and ex multi Championship winner, Jay Shepherd in support.

Co-driver drivers John Iley and Edward Worthington are relatively new to racing, but both have performed extremely well in pre-season test sessions and are looking forward to being successfully involved in the Fun Cup endurance racing.

“I have nothing but praise for the previous owners of 251 as the car is amazing to drive”, said Rod Barrett. ‘After testing and shake down trials at Donnington, we have a lot to live up to if we are to continue to add to the cars extraordinary history”.

Jay Shepherd added, “I wish I had the time to commit to driving it throughout the season, as I really enjoyed the race with Peter at Oulton back in 2016, it’s a really great car - but preparing the Team 7 and affiliated team cars for the 2019 season, and a team of cars and drivers to run and support takes up the majority of my time, therefore I may not have the opportunity as often as I would like this season”

We are really looking forward to the season ahead, with some new teams and faces joining the championship 👌🏽

The Browns return for a third season!

Team7Racing is delighted to have father and son, Alan and Rory Brown back for a third season, in car 249.

Director, Kate Shepherd, said: "What makes this more exciting is that Alan’s youngest son, Sam, will be joining them. Sam is a novice to car racing and recently passed his ARDS test with Jay at Bookatrack ARDS School. He is definitely a chip off the old block, already showing great promise with his lap times and aptitude".

We are looking forward to seeing this team out on the track this season!
