Team First4Vans and the MRF Legends Cars National Championships
Now, for those of you that may not know – at First4Vans, we don’t just have a passion for hiring and selling vans and cars across the South East.
We live and breathe motoring, and that’s why we race in the MRF Legends Cars National Championships.
The championships are a series of 15 “rounds” which in turn stage 4 or 5 races. The cars themselves are 5/8 scale replicas of Fords, Chevys and Dodges which are fitted with 125bhp Yamaha 1200cc motorcycle engines – capable of reaching speeds in excess of 120mph!
Our very own Legends Racing Van #29, raced by Nathan Anthony himself, was in action on the 9th/10th September in a dramatic weekend for the championships.[
Legends Racing Snetterton – story of the weekend
Six races ran over the weekend in the third to final event of the season. There was a changes at the top of the driver standings with reigning champion John Mickel returning to the summit after winning three out of those six races.
All did not go to plan for Team First4Vans though.
On a wet weekend, Nathan suffered two incidents in both heats on Saturday – unfortunately acquiring two points on his race licence in the process.
In the miserable weather and amongst all the commotion, Nathan placed 11th in the final race of the day, and was left to hope for better on Sunday.
Sunday Legends Racing Snetterton
On Sunday the racing timetable was interrupted by repairs to a barrier damaged in the morning’s British Truck Racing Association encounter.
When the Heat One did get going, the top 8 were racing nose-to-tail – with our man Nathan finishing a respectable, but disappointing, sixth.
Despite giving second-placed Miles Rudman a good running – there was not much to shout about from the First4Vans team this time around.
On to next time…
Our next race is at Rockingham in Northamptonshire for the penultimate event of the MRF Legends Cars National Championship season on the 30th September/1st October.
We can’t wait for more adrenaline-filled action!
