Demon Westy Returns to the Hills!

The eagle-eyed amongst you may have noticed a bit of a surprise on the entry list for Gurston Down this weekend.

 

There is another new contender in the ever popular Midland Championship Class 1b, and this is another car/driver combination that is sure to raise Warby’s blood pressure!

Former Mallock and Dallara driver Piers Thynne is returning to the hills after a couple of years off.

Piers and his Father Sheridan, who sadly passed away last winter, had often talked of creating a really quick road-going hillclimb car and Piers has now been able to do this.

Early this year Piers acquired the ex. Nicola & Wallace Menzies Westfield-Hayabusa Turbo and he has now completed quite a lengthy job-list to get the car ready.

The car has been resprayed, narrower wheels & tyres have been fitted, along with an electric reverse and a full roll cage (an idea justified by recent events).

Ian Dayson at Force Racing cars has set the car up and after a shakedown at Llandow today it should be ready to go.

We are sure that you will have great fun with your new toy Piers, The Shez would have loved it!
