The Ginetta showed good pace all weekend and at the end of the tricky 4 hours the team finished second in class and seventh overall.

Lifetime Racing were at Donington Park for the HRDC Coys International Trophy meeting on Saturday running Andrew Marler’s 1965 TVR Griffith. The car was competing in the GTS65 race which was a 1 hour pit stop race, Dan Eagling was sharing the driving duties with Andrew and started the 25 minute qualifying session. Andrew drove in the second half of qualifying and at the end of the session the pair had secured second on the grid. For the race Andrew started and when the lights went out he made a great start and led the race, as the race settled down Mike Whitaker in his similar TVR moved ahead of the Lifetime Racing car. As the pit stop window opened Andrew was one of the first to make the move into the pits after his competitive stint to hand the car over to Dan. As Dan settled into to his 40 minute stint the gap to the leading car started to drop and it looked like a chance of the win might be possible, then with 15 minutes left in the race the TVR suffered fuel pump failure. Dan switched to the back up pump but the gap had grown to much again and the team had to settle for second. Again Improvements were made on the car and both the team and drivers are looking forward to the next race at Oulton Park for the HSCC Guards Trophy.

The GEM09 of Adrian Langridge scored two strong points finishes at the last round of the BARC Clubmans Cup. The car ran in its first race since new development rear rockers had been fitted to the car and the feedback from Adrian was very positive. Lifetime racing’s Dan Eagling tested the car with the Langridge team the day before, after fitting the new parts Dan got down to some lap times under the Silverstone lap record and felt the car had a very good balance and inspired confidence. Work commitments will prevent Adrian competing in the next rounds of the championship so more testing will take place to continue the development.
14th May 2012
Adrian Langridge had his first race of 2012 racing the GEM09 that has been recently rebuilt by Lifetime Racing. Brands Hatch hosted the second round of the BARC Clubmans Cup and Adrian qualified 3rd for the first race of the weekend on Saturday morning just 0.05 seconds off pole and converted that into a podium finish in the afternoon finishing 3rd. On Sunday he went one better in qualifying and was second on the grid for the afternoon race. This time he took the lead from the start and built a one second gap to the chasing pack. Unfortunately Adrian made a mistake and went off damaging the GEM’s suspension so he had to retire the car. Next race is Silverstone and Lifetime Racing are busy making some update parts to try and help get Adrian on to the top step of the podium.

We have just returned from Pau in south France where we ran Tupper Robinson in his Mallock MK4 F3 car in the annual historic meeting that is held on the very exciting street circuit. The car ran well in both free practice and qualifying on Saturday and again on Sunday when Tupper finished both races just outside the top ten. Every time Tupper took to the track his lap times improved as he became more comfortable with the demanding circuit and the Mallock which he has little experience driving.
6th April 2012
We are pleased to announce that we will be running Tupper Robinson in his Mallock mk4 at the Pau Historic meeting in early May this year. The team are looking forward to this prestigious event and hope Tupper will have an enjoyable weekend.

Andy Langridge’s GEM 09 had it’s first test since we have completely rebuilt the car into a new spec chassis with numerous other updates which include stronger rear hubs and low friction wheel bearings. Andy’s son Adrian took to the wheel at Snetterton and completed 50 laps on the 300 circuit layout. The car ran well all day and after some installation laps Adrian started to push the car and feel the potential of the package. After lunch the team went through some set up changes and by the end of the day both driver and engineer were happy with the progress of the car. Adrian will race the GEM in selected rounds of the BARC Clubmans Cup this season.
