M & C Wilkinson finished 1st and 5th in the Peter Auto ‘Sixties Endurance Series’

The M & C Wilkinson Team have been competing in the ‘Peter Auto Series’ this season for the first time with Siamak Siassi’s and Alexis De Beaumont’s E-Types in the two hour ‘Sixties Endurance’ races. The series is regard as the biggest and best historic race series in Europe and the entry lists are like a who’s who of Historic racing.

The two-hour Sixties’ Endurance race is the traditional finale on Saturday afternoon and is more often than not dominated by the Shelby Cobras. The high-speed nature of the Monza circuit also suited the Cobra, which was underlined in qualifying. The first six places were filled by Cobras with the car driven by the Dutch pairing of David Hart and former F1 racer Giedo van der Garde fastest of all. Hart also grabbed the lead early in the race but despite controlling his pace, his Cobra succumbed to the heat with boiled brakes.

DIJON

This season the M & C Team have started to provide race preparation and support to Siamak Siassi and Alexis De Beaumont with their beautiful pair of racing fixed head FIA E-Types.

E-Petition all Motorsport/Track users should sign!

Posted by Wilkinson

One of our friends in Motorsport alerted us to this HM Government Petition about noise complaint waivers for anyone buying or renting property near a Motorsport venue – if you feel you could support it please read and sign and if possible circulate this to your friends.

introduce mandatory noise complaint waiver for anyone who buys or rents a property close to motorsport venue

Responsible department: Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs

There are innumerate cases of people knowingly moving within close proximity of motorsport venues, only to try to have their planning permission revoked or have them closed completely when they take exception to the noise.

It is extremely detrimental to the UK’s motorsport heritage, when all the motorsport venues start disappearing. Motorsport and the associated mechanical/engineering business is a key British export and second to none in the world of motorsports.

As such, anyone who wishes to buy or rent a property within a determined distance of a motorsport venue should have to read and sign legislature that waives their right to complain about the noise from the nearby venue. If they do not wish to be bothered by something that was a fixture of the community long before they arrived, they should not move there in the first place.
