Having gone through more saddles this year than John Wayne in a Hollywood western, the team are using this weekend as a springboard for their attempt on the Class 3A World Speed Record at Lake Coniston later this month.
Sue Cosgrave and Quentin Petit are teaming up for the first time in Dirty Deeds and Sue is taking to the wheel in place of regular driver Mark Terry.
Chris Bates and Jon Le Page in Bad Influence will not let an up close and personal encounter with a turn buoy stop them as we found out in the last event!
Finally in this class are regular entrants from Jersey, Scott ‘Chaka’ Walker and George Carter in 3-666 Bellona.
The team have been plagued with mechanical issues all year but are confident this weekend to make the start and finish line on both days.
3 teams will be battling it out in Z Class.
Z-27 Dewpacabra – Patrick and Philip Dewe are leading the Championship with Bill Gladstone and Z-121 – Me Too!
Katie Sauvarin and Ben Backhouse in Z-38 Money Monster have had a great year in their new rig taking mechanical problems in their stride, learning and improving every race.
Club Class 1
John Richardson with Sophie Le Prevost in 1-48 Easy Emily will race against Sean Homer with Dave Le Maitre in 1-7 Wonky Donkey.
Richardson is hoping he has more luck with his engine at this event after melting a piston and having to change the powerhead last time around.
Homer and Le Maitre have also put an entry in hoping to gain valuable points towards the Class Championship.
