John Shorter gives us an update on his latest results

We’ve had a successful start to 2017 overall, being our first season in the Pro1 category. This has meant an upgrade to a 2.3ltr 16v Vauxhall Exon race engine and more recently a new gearbox has been installed too! This season our focus is on road circuits and we’ve competed at Brands Hatch, Pembrey and Brands Hatch again so far. Results in order aTeam Shorter Wild West Jerkyre 9th, 8th, 7th, 6th and an 11th after contact in that race took us out of the top 6. We have consistently run in the top 7 cars each race, out of approximately 15 cars at each event.

Our last event at Brands Hatch saw us move forward, setting our personal best lap times and racing with the leading pack in the second race. Unfortunately the results did not reflect our performance that weekend and we were left with a lot of panel damage to repair.

We are now preparing for Donington Park on 22nd/23rd July. We are determined to have a podium finish this season in what has been the most challenging formula we’ve raced in. We’ve been close already so are on course to achieve our target!
