Rockingham – April 11/12

After a successful test day last Thursday the season opener is upon us already. Two weeks to go before a Triple Header weekend at the Rockingham Motor Speedway near Corby. For those of you based in our home county of Derbyshire, Rockingham is one of the closest to home.

This will be the first race meeting with our new team Westbourne Motorsport supporting the new car and providing expert coaching for Sam using the very latest GPS computerised data recording in the cars.

Sam has been busy over the winter and wIth some testing under our belt we are hoping for more out of the 2015 campaign, although the quality of the competition also appears to be growing as the Clio Cup Series becomes more recognised as a feeder series to the BTCC. Sam will be racing against ex-Touring Car drivers and UK Clio Cup front runners this year!

We have also been working hard over the winter to attract new sponsors and work with last years sponsors to ensure they continue to see value working with SamRandonRacing for another year. We are very grateful to all sponsors, Sam knows he would not be racing without them!


The car made its first run out in the new livery thanks to our friends at Evolve Automotive in Derby, watch by a large group of sponsors and supporters. Thanks to all of you for supporting Sam on his season launch.
It was also our first experience of the Westbourne hospitality arrangements. I think we were all impressed! Guests will love it.
