HSCC VW Beetle Silverstone (Race) 2012
Ian from the Just Kampers team is campaigning his 1965 1300c Volkswagen Beetle in the 2012 Historic Touring Car Championship. Round 3 of the series took place at Silverstone and Ian captured some fantastic footage of his classic Beetle mixing it up with Ford Mustangs and Mini's. We caught up with Ian after the race, "Captain cautious for the first lap what with the squidgy brake pedal and a tacho which had a mind of it's own (buzzed the motor a few times) Qualified 34th out of 47 cars and things were going peachy until I hit a line of oil and spun it. As it seems to be the case with hot race engines, the stalled engine wouldn't re-start so my race was over just as it was getting interesting...Onwards to Snetterton for a double header."
