The distinctive red and white Racetec OMS single seater is driven by Richard Vaughan from Wilsden, Thorite's Marketing Manager, who is campaigning in the closely-fought Northern Speed Championship. This is an annual series of events comprising runs against the clock on both motor racing circuits and hill climb courses throughout northern England.
Whilst competing in the sprint Richard added a valuable haul of points to his existing Northern Speed Championship tally, taking second place on Saturday and maximum points on Sunday among the Championship contenders. These results are even more impressive considering that Richard had never driven on Blyton's extremely fast and technical circuit before.
Thorite is Racetec's chief sponsor ably assisted by a number of leading pneumatics industry manufacturers including SIP compressors, FORCE industrial tools, Redashe hose reels and Chicago Pneumatic (CP) air tools.
Racetec will next be in action at 3 Sisters Sprint Circuit in Wigan, challenging for more valuable Championship points in a one day sprint hosted by Chester Motor Club on Sunday August 5th.
