Shaun and Sarah Fudge, owner-drivers of the Lewis Dean Motorsport Subaru Impreza WRX, returned to Gurston Down Speed Hill Climb Championship on 16-17th June 2018.
Supported by EBC brakes, the pair posted admirable times in practice on both days. Shaun managed to claim podium positions in 2nd place on Saturday and 3rd place on Sunday; only tenths of seconds separated the contenders.
The field included a Porsche Cayman S, Mitsubishi Evo 6, and a Toyota Celica GT4 – all beaten by the Impreza.
Sarah managed a respectful 4th place on both days. The weekend was extremely hot and all cars were suffering with the heat, however the BSR Blade Discs and Yellowstuff Pads fitted to the race car gave the drivers the confidence they needed to push for the top places.
Shaun is still top of the table in class and is currently 6th overall out of 72 entries, with only 4 points separating him from the top of the overall championship. Shaun and Sarah are both looking forward to the July rounds and hope their current good form will continue.
