2022 Season Roundup
Nov 08, 2022
As the racing draws to a close we wanted to roundup some of the highs from this season.
With Rupert Deeth taking both the National and Winter championships in a closely contested season we retain the Miglia M7RC championship. Of the 19 Miglia races, a Swiftune powered car took the chequered flag an incredible 16 times!
Over in the Historic's, we end the NKHTGT season CT07 class champions thanks to Bert Mets. A Swiftune 1-2 finish with Mini newcomer Alexander Schlüchter at the finale was a fantastic way to see that season out.
Nick Paddy and Roger Godfrey took the HSCC Historic Touring Cars championship in the K3 and D class respectively. While Barry Sime bagged the CTCRC C-class championship, notching up 8 podiums including 3 outright race wins across the season.
There was a solid showing of Swiftune power for the Masters Historic - Pre-66 Touring Car race at Brands Hatch, ending in a Swiftune 1-2-3 (Nathan Heathcote, Jeff Smith, Page/Swift). Oulton Park was a bit lighter on cars but we walked away with podium finishes there too.
The HRDC race series has generated plenty of success for us too, least not their season opener, the first (of hopefully many) Swiftune Trophy races. There was a fantastic turnout, with a great number of Swiftune Mini’s on the grid.
Terry Moore has been flying the Swiftune flag over in Retro Rallycross. His win in Belgium is a personal favourite after making a mega move on the MR2 of Lynch in the closing stages of the race.
Keeping it on the slippery stuff, Colin Atterral and Kelly Wetherick took the National Autograss class 4 championship in their Swiftune powered Mini pickup.
The Goodwood Revival was another strong outing for us. All six of the Mini’s that lined up on the grid for the St. Mary’s Trophy races were Swiftune powered, a victory in itself, elevated by some fantastic on track results and plenty of entertainment for the spectators.
Beyond the Mini’s, our engines have been performing strongly and pulling in results with the front engined Formula Junior cars and MGB’s, Sprites and Midgets, especially in the Hill Climb Championship.
Roll on next season!
