THE CAR...

When Autosport`s Marcus Pye did a feature on 4 Skoda clone racers from the BARC NW Sports/Saloons series in August 1992 Bob Claxton`s car was one of them. Three were based on tubs built by John Leek , chassis 1 was Pete Edwards` , 2 was Bob`s and 3 was the multi race winning Tony Sugden turbo car. Bob`s car ran in class B with a Bill Blydenstein developed Lotus-Vauxhall 904 engine that actually came from Bill Dryden`s SMT Firenza , giving 270BHP.

Bob raced this neat , narrow-body Skoda 110 in the series for many years ,aswell as using it for Hillclimbs,

along with his other car , a class D Renault 21 turbo.

After a Class A second at the opening race weekend of the new CSCC series it was very sad that Bob`s engine let go during qualifying at the third weekend , at Mallory Park. Bob thereafter continuing the series in the Renault.
