The WP Group backed Subaru Impreza of Shaun and Sarah Fudge (Lewis Dean Motorsport) once again arrived at Gurston Down Hill Climb on 20/21st July hoping their season's good fortune would see them achieve another successful podium result in the over 2000cc Road Going Production Class.
Gearbox gremlins put the team out of the Saturday practice session leaving the team with only one practice run on the Sunday to assess the car, track and conditions.
Shaun was running in second place after the Sunday morning practice run and the first timed run placed him third. Determined to achieve another award Shaun pushed the Impreza just a little too far narrowly escaping an off on one of the fastest part of the track.
The race day ended with a positive third in class and the Impreza ran reliably in conditions that could only be described as sweltering. Shaun and Lewis Dean Motorsport truly believe that, with the on going development of the car, there is much more to come from their fledgling motorsport team. Shaun said “Small teams can only compete with the support, confidence and generosity of companies such as WP Group and we are grateful for their help and are proud to display their name on our race car”.
