Coniston Records Week – Final Day

Please Share!

crewIt was a fairly quiet end to another successful Coniston Records Week.

Bob McCarthy increased his Club Class 2 record to 85.68 mph, while Tom Montgomery-Swan raised his Club Class Unlimited speed to 93.01 mph.

Montgomery-Swan never slow in finding new publicity angles, unceremoniously stood down his co-driver Michał Galczewski from Poland and recruited Matt Palfreyman.

Palfreyman, the 2016 UIM F2 European Silver Medalist couldn’t help his temporary team mate improve SUNUS Ocean Racing’s speed and commented afterwards;

‘It were bloody good that, I’ve decided to race in the Cowes Torquay Cowes next year and beat Tom and Michał’!

If the Records set were impressive, the camaraderie between Circuit and Offshore racers was more so.

The Event in its 46th year has lost none of its charm and mystique.
