We thought we’d update you on the Russ Carpenter Racing Car, where it’s been and where it’s going!

‘After a lot of diagnosis and fault finding we deemed the old 35 year old magneto ignition system was failing so we’ve sent it away to the US to be remanufactured. We did however manage to partake in the annual evening cacklefest at the event’
