Disaster at Snetterton = RIP "Syd"

... Introducing "Molly" !


Silv9.jpg (209805 bytes)

After a 100+mph accident, (an assisted-exit-stage-right) in the second race at Snetterton, Syd was written off with major chassis damage.  

The challenge was on to source a new car to be built before the next round.  Finsport worked tirelessly night and day and with the colour scheme produced by Totally Dynamic - Colour My Car and Roose Motorsport a miraculous immaculate car was created in 11 days!

DSCN0379.JPG (3523845 bytes)

Dawn was able to find better pace in the new car and following two excellent races at Silverstone, was awarded 2 x 3rd places in the Mintex Masters Cup - a small reward as recognition for the efforts of the Finsport team.





Thanks to Corbeau Seats for the speedy delivery of my new Race seat

Huge Press release for Dawn and the Golf Gti's

May 20 2010




Dawn raced the ABR Peugeot 106 at Castle Combe over the May bank holiday.  Dawn raced well and battled with higher powered cars.  

No modifications to the 106 meant she was left behind a bit on straight line power but she brought the car home safely after a great race.  

"Dawn has a good outlook to her racing and certainly applies herself well to her driving, Battling with higher powered cars speaks for itself " - Alan Blencowe.
