An exciting weekend at Goodwood Revival 2017, Complete Motorsport Solutions transported some of Hoole Racings cars to the event, but also took customer Mike Whitaker with his Lola T70 MKII, which was invited into the Whitsun Trophy Race.
Qualifying was on Friday, Mike qualified an outstanding 3rd behind Nick Padmore and Mike Jordan (both professionals!). A pleasant surprise for the team and Mike on Saturday, pre race Mike had been bumped up to 2nd on the Grid, behind Padmore!
Up until the race on Saturday the weather had held out, but a few minutes prior to the race the heavens opened and the race was declared as wet. Not a problem Mike had easily secured a 2nd last year in the wet, so Complete Motorsport Solutions was confident Mike would have a good race.
The race began and Mike got in from of Padmore before the first bend and kept it there for almost half a lap, before the GT40's gained on him, both Padmore and Ward got in front and held their positions to the end of the race.
Mike Finished 3rd overall with Nick Padmore 2nd and Chris Ward 1st!
We are sill confident that if it was a dry race Mike easily would of beat both GT40's, until next time!
