Steve Watton was back in the driving seat in his Turner Sports Car this weekend.
“The opportunity to race on the Brands Hatch Grand Prix circuit doesn’t present itself very often so it was with great anticipation that the competitors lined up for the third meeting of the HSCC’s new ‘Chase Equipment Historic Modsports & Special Saloons’ series at the weekend.” Brands Hatch Race Report July 2023
The Turner Sports Car is ready for the track! I got to see it up close…and sit inside!

Steve Watton was back in the driving seat in his Turner Sports Car ~ ‘The Gurney Special’ at Snetterton this weekend.
A great view of the race from Jonathan’s Austin Healey.
There were 36 cars. Our car (the yellow ‘Gurney Special’) a Turner Sports, got pole position and won the race at the last corner as you will see on the clip. It then ended up with fastest lap as well.
All in all a good weekend, except that a faulty radiator cap caused it to start losing water on the 2nd lap. It went over the line with 120 degrees on the clock and no water, but our driver wasn’t going to stop.
The engine is apart now and hopefully it will be back together ready for next Saturday (8th) at Snetterton.
