Another overseas event for team Saunders & Hart, and the Unipart Metro 6R4 Legends Rally in San Marino Italy.
Invited as one of the cars in the Legends Demonstration Field, we were looking forward to 4 Friday night time stages, plus a further 10 stages on Saturday and Sunday in day light on closed roads in the Principality.
This time our group of approximately 20 cars ran in front of the Legends Rally which had many notable drivers taking part including Didier Auriol, Miki Biasion and many others from the 1980’s Group B era.
Another superb event!
The Spa 6 Hours 2013 saw INRacing with the Lotus 18 of Stephen Bond and Cooper Bristols of Chris Phillips and Ian Nuthall (Mary Grant) out in the HGPCA races.
Chris Phillips out in his second race weekend in the Cooper Bristol and raced wheel to wheel with Nuthall and Martin Eyre (Cooper Bristol) during both races eventually coming out on top.
Stephen Bond had two cracking races fighting over class position with Erik Staes and the two were separated by less than a second coming onto the final lap of the weekend before an unfortunate coming together took them both out of the race. As they were the last two cars on the lead lap this didn’t affect there finishing positions!
Stephen Bond was joined by Keith Fell in the Motor Racing Legends Woodcote Trophy race in the Lister Bristol. They stormed to a comfortable 1st in class and 5th overall.
INRacing have just returned from another successful outing at the prestigious Goodwood Revival, all 12 cars successfully completing their respective races.
Tony Wood was the pick of the drivers with a Madgwick Cup pole position and hard fought victory in the Lister Bristol. William Nuthall had a troubled time in Graham Burrows’ historic Connaught ALSR, battling from the back of the grid, due to electrical trouble in qualifying, before being hit by the bonnet and pitting twice to finish 19th out of the 30 starters.
The TecMec also piloted by Tony Wood finished 2nd in the Richmond Trophy which included great battles between Ian Nuthall (Alta), Steve Russell (Cooper Bristol) and Barry Wood (Cooper Bristol). William Nuthall was driving the HWM Alta still owned by HWM Motors for the first time and the tricky conditions in qualifying led to him out qualify much newer more powerful machinery which he could not keep with in the dry race conditions.
The Woods RGS Atalanta came through the dark, wet, miserable Friday night race conditions to finish a respectable 9th in the Freddie March Memorial Trophy.
William Nuthall was one of three qualifiers to lap at 100mph + in the Gordon Trophy in Giorgio Marchi’s Cooper T53 and was running a solid second before being slowed by split oil and went to 4th less than 1 second from 2nd place. Miles Griffiths ending the race winning by a distance. Paul Griffin (Cooper T51), Ian Nuthall in John Saunders Cooper Maserati and Stephen Bond (Lotus 18) all enjoyed busy races.
During the Goodwood Revival 2013, the father son pairings of Ian and William Nuthall, and Barry and Tony Wood were filmed and interviewed by Canadian production crew and will be appearing in a documentary in 2014.
The final weekend of August saw a return to the Dutch seaside resort of Zandvoort for the second time in two years.
The Historic Grand Prix Zandvoort 2013 is quickly establishing itself and a top European meeting for historic racing with 20,000 knowledgeable, enthusiastic spectators greeting the drivers daily.
The Pre ’61 race saw Nick Eden’s Cooper Bristol continue from his Nurburgring form despite qualifying behind Paul Grant he upped his pace by two seconds a lap in the 1st race and did not look back winning Class 5 on both Saturday and Sunday. Paul Grant and Ian Nuthall ended the weekend separated by just 0.002 seconds.
Zandvoort also saw the ex Ken Wharton Cooper Bristol Mk2 acquired by Chris Phillips at the start of the year, have its first race since a bare chassis rebuild by INRacing. Chris knocked 6-9 seconds a lap off his times each session and had got to grips of the car by the end of the weekend, thoroughly enjoying his first foray into single seaters.
Erik Staes and Stephen Bond’s Lotus joined the Pre ’66 grid along with William Nuthall in Giorgio Marchi’s Cooper T53. Staes again successfully completed both races getting up to speed in the Lotus 18/21, finishing the weekend with a lap time just 2 seconds behind Bond. Nuthall qualified the Cooper T53 in 5th place in the hotly contested session, he joined 5 other cars within 1 second of each other. A few issues with low oil pressure and high temperatures dropped Nuthall back down the field after promising first laps in both races.
