CWR/DG Sportscars owner Mike Luck took his Class C Chimaera to top honours in the 2017 Dunlop TVR Challenge at the weekend. Mike went into the last three rounds held at the Cheshire circuit, with a slim lead in the series from fellow TVR specialist owner Jason Clegg. Although the weather was changeable all day, causing some difficult tyre choices, Mike did enough to maintain the points lead and secure the series.
A rare TVR photo opportunity cropped up at our workshop the other day when a 1960
Grantura indulged in a spot of sunbathing alongside a 2005 Sagaris. One of the oldest
TVRs in the country and one of the newest, giving a nice illustration of the broad range
of cars we care for.
