One of our youngest competitors is returning to the Chateau Impney to try and earn himself the Class 1 title.
Tom Waterfield will be driving the 1929 Frazer Nash Supersports that has been extensively modified for competition use by owner Simon Blakeney-Edwards, a different car to the one he drove to win the Class 4 title in 2017.
The car has won the Lycett Trophy awarded by the VSCC for three years in a row and is a regular winner of the VSCC annual aggregate trophies. The driver currently holds the record for not only the Class 4 time at the Chateau Impney Hill Climb, but also the Prescott Long Course Class 2 and the Rockingham Class 2 titles. Waterfield also won the accolade of fastest time of the day in a pre-war sports car at the 2017 Chateau Impney Hill Climb.
The Supersport is one of 165 built in the 1920s, and from 1928 the cars had no running boards, enabling them to become more aerodynamic. We can’t wait to see this car in action in July!
