MSV Trackday Trophy

BMW E30 325i

SPEEDMERCHANTS E30 is entering the 2017 MSV Trackday Trophy with a novice driver who has just obtained his race license.

Since its debut in 2010, the popular Trackday Trophy (TDT) Series has firmly established itself as the best place for enthusiastic track day drivers and novice racing drivers to start their racing career! Designed for production and production based Saloon, Hatchback and Sports cars, with a 45 minute pit stop race, TDT allows two drivers to share the cost, and the fun, while racing at some of the UK’s best racing circuits!!

Fun in the winter sun

Brands Hatch Winter Rally

Fun in the frost and ice at Brands Hatch RallyeTrack Day

We took the SPEEDMERCHANTS Ford Escort to Brands Hatch for the inaugural RallyeTrack Day ahead of the Motoring News Circuit Rally round. -4 degree temperatures and frost and ice helped ramp up the fun levels to the max.

The Escort performed well as opposed to the driver (me) who had a couple of spins. The car has been Sprinted, Hillclimbed and Rallied and upgrades are planned to Track Race the car as well.
