Lifetime Racing line up for the season

The team Lifetime Racing, consisting of drivers Ian Anderson and Amanda Black will be back with Britcar for the 2015 season in a Ginetta G55. Both drivers have taken well to endurance racing having previously raced with Caterhams in shorter races. In their first outing in a Ginetta G50 last season with Britcar at the Silverstone round, they took a clean sweep; pole position, fastest lap and a class win.

Ian Anderson was the Caterham Graduate Sigma Champion for years 2011 and 2012.

Amanda Black held the same title in 2013, along with being the British Woman Racing Drivers Champion 2012 and 2013.

Lifetime Racing provides complete motorsport solutions for both historic and modern racing cars. They have a long history in motorsport and a wealth of experience and knowledge throughout all aspects of the industry.

For more information on the team:


We managed to get a few words from Amanda, “We are delighted to be racing in the MSA British Dunlop Endurance Championship for 2015 with lifetime racing and my partner Ian Anderson. It has always been an ambition to compete in a premier high profile racing series and I’m looking forward to gaining more experience in GT and endurance racing.”

“After gaining endurance experience last year and being successful we hope to build on this. Gaining more experience in GT endurance racing, Ian and I are hoping for race wins and also to be competitive for the overall championship. “

We would like to thank Amanda for her time and look forward to seeing Ian, Amanda and the Lifetime Racing Team at the first round in just 4 weeks, Silverstone National 28th March.

2015 European Stop – Zandvoort

This will be Britcar’s first visit to the world renown Zandvoort Circuit! Set on the coast of the Netherlands, it is one of the countries most outstanding tracks and favoured by DTM as the most popular stop outside of Germany. Just a stones throw away from the 9km sandy beach on the North Sea Coastline.


Zandoort gained its popularity due to its fast, sweeping corners such as Scheivlak and “Tarzanbocht”. Tarzanbocht (Tarzan corner) being the most famous for its positive camber, providing excellent overtaking opportunities, not only on the inside lane but also possible to pass around the outside.

This ideal location is a great to meet up with fellow drivers to go for a beer or two at one of the beach bars looking out over the expansive sandy beaches, or for the more adventurous, it is only half an hour to Amsterdam.


Walero Keep Your Cool Base Layers – Britcar Drivers 10%

Britcar drivers benefit from 10% off Walero products up to the end of 2015.

Walero provided us some information about their products:

“Walero base layers are the brainchild of Fiona James, a GT3 driver, they have been tried & tested in just about every situation during development, from ski-ing, cycling, & hill walking as well as in race cars by several people.

They came about when Fiona was looking at the technology for an equine product & asked if it was possible to add this into flame retardant fabric. Having experienced first hand the temperatures in a racecar, Fiona was keen to look at different ways to help reduce the heat stress suffered by drivers having found nothing suitable on the market that either didn’t cost huge sums of money or add lots of weight to the car.

Another thing Fiona was keen to address was the not so pleasant whiff of her kit bag after a weekends racing!

And so Walero was born. Fiona’s recently retired Olympic dressage horse was the inspiration & provided the name, & Fiona’s love of motorsports spurred things on.

What makes Walero products stand out from the crowd is the ability to actively regulate your temperature using technology developed for NASA to keep their astronauts never too hot, never too cold, but always just right. This uses microcapsules of a phase change material (pcm), which is incorporated into the yarn before the fabric is woven. It absorbs the heat energy. This will last for the lifespan of the garments.

The other technology we have utilised is an environmentally friendly anti-microbial additive. This works on bio-mimicry & was based on something the African Claw Toed Frog produces naturally! This will have a long lifespan in the garments but we are bringing out a laundry wash re-charge liquid so you can have all your kit smelling as sweet as you!

We do have other products coming out soon, including balaclavas, socks, & helmet (& boot!) sanitiser. There is also a second colour choice coming out soon.

Available exclusively through Grand Prix Racewear in the UK or direct with Walero or for more information & testimonials.”

Reigning champions Mason-Lockie return for 2015

The 2015 MSA British Dunlop Endurance Championship kicks off in just 6 weeks at Silverstone National, with two 90 minute races on the 28th of March.

The grids are starting to look excellent, with new and previous competitors returning for the new season. Amongst which we are pleased to announce the Championship winning duo of Mason-Lockie are returning for 2015.

They will once again be campaigning with the dependable Class 2 Ferrari 458GTC of David Mason OBE, the very same car that brought them to victory in the 2014 Britcar Endurance Championship. It all came down to the last lap of the last round at Donington Park National Circuit at night, after the season long battle with the Spanish duo of Morcillo-Cintrano in the class 1 Mosler, Mason-Lockie took the championship by a single point.


We managed to get a few words with Calum Lockie about his return to Britcar “It is fantastic and exciting to be back. To have won the championship against a much faster Class 1 car wasn’t something we hadn’t even dared to imagine at the start of the season. We will do our best and give our everything, but it will be a tall order to retain the title.” In addition “The cup is excellent, one of the best and certainly the biggest I have won. The only problem is I don’t get to keep it!”

Lockie has enjoyed a triumphant race career from winning the British GT Championship to wins in Group C and Historic Grand Prix cars. He is also well known in endurance racing, competing in no fewer than sixteen 24 hour races including Le Mans, Daytona and Nurburgring. He also has four Britcar Championship titles under his belt, there remains very little Calum has not had success in.

With a stacked 2015 season ahead Lockie is not only racing the Ferrari but; racing a 1938 Maserati GP car at Goodwood Revival, a Jaguar XK120 in the Heritage Series, a marvellously rare Tojeiro Jaguar and the 1981 Spa 24hr winning Mazda RX-7 at Goodwood. With around 20-30 races, he says “is there such a thing as too much?”

Britcar Championship - Donington 2014 - 2

David Mason was also kind enough to provide us with some of his thoughts and feelings, “I am looking forward tremendously to the new season, particularly as last year’s co-champion I have the coveted number “1” on the car.  It was such a close run thing to win the overall championship with 1 point over the Mosler that it really was a dramatic finish to a roller coaster season”.

David started racing single seaters during the 1960’s in Formula Junior, Formula Two and sports cars. He said that “it was always unfinished business when I retired all those years ago. They were the killer years and I retired when no fewer than 11 of my friends and competitors had been lost, such were the extreme dangers of motor racing at that time”. He made his return to the sport around 6 years ago with some casual track days, after that David made the decision to renew his licence and has progressed to where he is now, holding a championship title. “Winning the Britcar Championship was just surreal.  Stirling agreed that he cannot think of anybody who similarly retired 50 years ago and then returned to win a very competitive and serious championship!!”

“I was of course extremely fortunate to have such an experienced and gifted co-driver in Calum Lockie and I kid myself not, that without him the result would have been very different.  Calum always said that we would both make contributions that count at various points of the season and mine came in the last race at Donington at the end of the championship.” The 458 suffered power steering failure during Lockies stint in the final round, opinion had it that the car should retire the race. David however decided to press on despite being in recovery from a broken shoulder; “I lugged the car around for 45 minutes making a point of finishing the race. The car weighed a ton and it was pretty dicey to say the least, but finish I did and the result was that we secured 1 point for finishing. Calum was right, every little helps.”

His final words “We are both really excited about this season and are committed to trying to win the double, we cannot wait!”


The vastly experienced and professional FF Corse will once again be running the Ferrari for the pair, Team Principle, Anthony Cheshire says “We are really pleased to be defending the Championship again this year with David & Calum in a Ferrari 458 Challenge GTC. Last year was amazing and to have won the Championship by a solitary point at the last round was testament to the perseverance of the both the drivers and the team. The car is currently going through a major winter rebuild in the workshop and will be ready to start testing in a few weeks. We know this year is going to be tougher than ever and it will be difficult to repeat last year’s achievements, but everyone at FF Corse is really up for the challenge and looking forward to it.”
