The Dogs!

Team Dog returned to hillclimb action this weekend at Prescott’s Midland round after a layoff of over 2 years.

Ian and Simon Fidoe sold their highly successful Pilbeam MP43 sportsracer to Terry Clifford after Simon had claimed the Hillclimb Leaders Championship in 2008. The plan was to step upto the single-seater classes with an OMS CF08 chassis powered by one of Terry Davis’ TKD YV8 engines.

However after a few delays to the engine program, and with Ian & Simon desperate to get stuck into driving again, the pairing have purchased a small-engined single-seater as a stop-gap.

This weekend they made the first appearance for their Bill Chaplin built Empire-Suzuki. This car, which is similar in spec to the car used by Dave & Pam Gardner, is beautifully put together and the Fidoes seemed to enjoy playing with their new toy.
