Lloyd Storey wins 2WD at SWS Rd3

Lloyd Storey wins 2WD at SWS Rd3

The 3rd round of the popular Silverstone Winter Series was held at their indoor astroturf track in Northampton. As ever, the Silverstone team built a challenging yet flowing track to test the full entry of drivers. In the main 2WD class, Lloyd Storey and Nathan Waters took all four rounds of qualifying, with two each. Lloyd took the overall TQ by virtue of the faster time over 5 minutes, and would line up on pole for the A final. Nathan stayed on Lloyd’s tail for the entire length of the final, but Lloyd managed to take the win just ahead of Nathan, closely followed by Kev Lee in 3rd.

Elliott Harper signs with Schumacher

Elliott Harper signs with Schumacher

Schumacher announce that four-time IFMAR World Championship A-finalist and EFRA Euros podium finisher Elliott Harper has signed to represent Schumacher Racing on a multi-year deal. Elliott was one of the hottest properties in the driver market after announcing earlier in the year he would be leaving his previous sponsor. Schumacher would like to welcome Elliott to our Touring Car Team and wish him the best for the future. Elliott had this to say about the deal:

“After deciding to leave my previous team, I took some time to carefully consider which company I wanted to represent and race for in the future. Schumacher became an obvious choice for me – not only is their support and customer service second to none, but they have also achieved huge successes in all of their market leading projects. My aim is to continue these great results not only in the UK, but also across Europe and the rest of the world. I have seen the team work exceptionally well together, listen to driver feedback, continuously develop their cars and implement innovative ideas. My first touring car was in fact a Schumacher, so I feel very proud to fully represent the brand that started off my racing career. I can’t wait for the coming seasons and races with Schumacher.
