Additional car this season

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 👌🏽
