Sam sets new records at Donington

Sam Kirkpatrick with his awards

Team Wigton member, Sam Kirkpatrick set new records when racing at the MG Car Cub race meeting at Donington last weekend taking no less than four outright wins, class wins and fastest laps driving the Wheatsheaf garage MG ZR190.

This was the first time at an MGCC meeting that a driver has won four races. This marked the resumption for motor racing in the UK with strict hygiene controls in place and sadly no spectators.

Sam in action

On Saturday Sam did two races in the MG Trophy series for MG ZRs in his class A car, having contest class B last year. Nineteen year old Sam was in a class of his own in practice and won the 15 lap race by seven seconds.  In race two it was the same story with a seventeen second win.

On Sunday, the Wheatsheaf team were in action in the Cockshoot Trophy series which is open to all types of modified MGs.  In practice Sam was one and a half seconds quicker than his nearest rival and converted this to a 46 second win and in race two the margin was 35 seconds after a controlled drive at the front.
