Anthony made a return to Radical sportscar racing again this weekend at the Ascari Race Resort in Spain.
He was partnering client Timothy Lyons who he coaches through his IWannaGoFaster.com business. Although racing isn't new to Timothy having raced for a number of years in Formula Ford 1600 in the late 1970's & early 80's, it was his first competitive event for nearly 30 years and his first in a sportscar.
Having won the 2007 Radical SR3 British championship, Anthony was keen to be on the pace of the front runners in this very competitive category. He achieved this by running amongst the top guys in free practice and having a good dice with winner Alex Kapadia on track in race 2 and setting the second fastest lap time.
Anthony & Timothy finished 5th & 9th in class in the two races - a modest result but a good foundation to start with. "We never expected to be on the pace as a pairing just yet - this was just the start to get Timothy used to driving competitively again and how this type of racing works and for us to build on working together" said Anthony.
They will be racing together in the full Radical UK Cup & potentially at rounds of the European Masters, although Anthony may miss one race in June due to the birth of his first child with wife Amanda Whitaker.
