Brands Hatch was the opener for Production GTi Championship for 2020.. we had waited so long and had several races cancelled - we even had our planned Donington rounds stolen by the BTCC !
It was a triple header and Dawn got a quali time of 0.6 seconds off the pole! Half a second difference could see you at the front or the back of the grid.. unfortunately we were at the back.. but the whole pack qualified within a second.. we're getting there!
Dawn had 3 great races, the end of the 2nd race she pushed Beale to the line, and the 3rd race saw her fighting side by side with Marsh and she didn't back down, even after a bump, right to the line she was pushing hard
we look forward to the next races
Calling all marshals.. at Brands Hatch this weekend.. 12th September..
as there is no longer a "congregation point" for sign on, make sure you all go for 'breakfast', as I have agreed with MSVR that I will have a team member (aka my Mum) outside the Kentagon on Saturday morning (aiming for 8am, traffic allowing..) handing out a snack or two and she will be armed with several "Buster" B42's stickers for purchase if you would like to join in the prize draws..
there will be a draw on the day and you could win one of several prizes. All B42's Marshals club members will be in the prize draw anyway but if you are there you could collect the prize that afternoon... join in the fun now at www.dawnontrack.co.uk
we will see you there at Brands Hatch with the Project 8 Racing Toyo Tires Racing Saloons.
this time its just Dawn racing, give us a wave if you're there.
Thruxton Race Report is now on line.. it didnt quite go to plan, but we survived!, it was an experience and it was our first family team 2-driver event so we learned a lot.
We are delighted to announce that Team B42's Motorsport will be racing at Thruxton on 25th July in a TWO driver race with the CSCC in Turbo Tin Tops.
Myself and Jamie Butcher will take the wheel for our first ever two driver race and Team Manager Andy will be in charge of our Pitstop... we will all be in the hot seat having never done it before so we're pretty excited .
Can't wait to see some racing and see a few of the orange Army again. Don't forget to buy your Buster stickers to be in with a chance of prizes in the race day draw. Unfortunately I think this one is still planned to be behind closed doors, but we will see you next time if you cant visit this one
We have had our races seriously affected by the Covid-19 lockdown - but finally it seems to be easing and we can go racing.. the provisional calendar for the Teekay Couplings Production GTI Championship has been agreed, - subject to the Government not changing their mind again etc.. see you on track soon
We are also looking at letting "Seve" stretch his legs at other races.. more detail to follow on Facebook soon.. clue, wheres the fastest race circuit in the UK...? see you soon
Huge thanks to the BRSCC - the club running our Teekay Couplings Production GTI Championship - they have interviewed me during the Covid-19 lockdown to keep our spirits up while we wait for racing to begin
Its published on their website and Facebook
Here's the next of our interviews in the BRSCC Chats With... series, where this time we chat with Production GTi race driver and marshal Dawn Boyd who regales us with her experience competing in Formula Woman, which car and driver combo she'd most love to experience and the amazing support club she runs for her fellow marshals!
"The next interview in our BRSCC Chats With… series sees us in conversation with Dawn Boyd, someone who knows what it’s like to be on both sides of the cockpit as a driver and a marshal. Having competed in saloon cars for the majority of her career, Dawn currently races in the Teekay Couplings Production GTi Championship and is awaiting her second season of racing at the wheel of her Volkswagen Golf GTi which sports the BMMC logo on the bonnet and a striking orange and silver livery in support of her fellow Orange Army members. Let’s find out more about what she loves the most about both racing and marshalling!

Wow! What a year, what a great finale weekend! It's been a steep learning curve for team B42's Motorsport. Building a new car in 3 months in our spare time, overcoming several obstacles, great teamwork, awesome team Manager 😎 and of course awesome No1 driver, and the no.2 driver didn't disgrace himself either! 😊 we completed our first year in the Teekay Production GTi Championship.
Brands Hatch was the scene for the finale of the Championship, and after missing Donington Park Dawn had some points to make up. Not usually very confident in the rain, Dawn qualified 6th (5th before the red flag restart) in the pouring rain, and then raced to 5th in changing wet/rain/drying/slippy conditions, the best result of the year, hanging onto the car in all variations of slides, and then topped it off with a another superb race on another wet slippery track holding off 3 challengers coming home 6th!
Huge thanks to BMMC Clubracing FrontlineDevelopments JABBA KenningtonMotors Corbeau RaceParts Miltek CustomCages and to Storck Xcite Hawkers Miltek Tao PMR Orbital TeamHard Thruxton Scrapyard SEWorkwear for all the goodies for Marshals. Apologies if I've forgotten anyone, its been a blast. Thankyou
Thankyou of course to my ever supportive Mumsie, Andrew, Jamie, Will and Ross - well done Team B42's Motorsport 🚗🏁👍
Unfortunately I couldn't race at Donington on medical grounds.. I woke up Saturday with pain in my leg... limping. it got worse... went to the medic at Donington Park who promptly sent me to A&E at Derby hospital!!! My thanks to Andy who helped me all day, as well as getting the car set up ready to race just in case!
I spent the rest of the day there being checked for a blood clot.. it was positive.. not good for racing, so Sunday morning we called in the Teams #2 driver...!! Andy's son Jamie Butcher.. who I used to race alongside in the Mark2 golfs 10 years ago... he hadn't raced in those 10 years, but was still up for it.. we put him in the seat after a lot of running around by Robert Sadler the organiser to get permission and Jamie went out for a test run, but above all, to enjoy himself, with instructions not to get in the way of any championship battles but to have fun and test the car... so he was at the back but having some fun none the less. I've been off work for 2 weeks recovering and hated it that I couldn't race but I will be back for Brands Hatch, with less of a limp!
B42's Motorsport head North again soon for the next round of the Teekay Couplings Production GTi Championship. We're up to Donington Park - hope to see you there
