Racetec Driver/Team Owner Richard Vaughan has invested a great deal of time developing the single seat racing car into a Sports Libre contender and it is now repaying all his hard work by providing his best hill climbing and sprint season so far: Out of 6 events this year Richard has won his class 5 times, set class records at Three Sisters track in Wigan and the Blyton circuit near Gainsborough, albeit for only 24 hours when Dan Mason took it the following day! The cream on the cake was setting the overall Fastest Time of the Day award in June at Harewood’s Jim Thompson Meeting to win the Jim Thomson memorial Trophy.
Speaking after his latest double success Richard said: “The car just keeps getting better and I’m currently lying 7th out of 25 in the Harewood Fastest Time of the Day Championship, which is open to the ten fastest drivers at each meeting, even though I started the season late and missed the first two events. The OMS is still very much a “work in progress” project - phase one included fitting enveloping rear bodywork and phase two will see the replacement of the two individual front mudguards with completely streamlined Le Mans-style bodywork. I also hope to add a turbocharger to produce even more engine power.”
