Gary Skipp’s Sports Carazing nameplate return to digital slot racing after an absence of five years.
The Englishman’s endurance team contested the Derby H:O Racing Club’s annual Le Mans 24 hours six times and were frequent notables on early oxigen endurance racing event entry lists. Taking a break to focus on organising activities for The Digital Slot Car Association, the team’s last race was the 2014 Le Mans 24 Hours in a partnership with the Dutch outfit Racing for Holland.
Joining the midlands-based Hopeful Six team sees a reunion of all five original Carazing drivers plus the addition of Quorn / Rockingham and Hopeful Six driver Nick Wade. The merge brings about a six-strong driver line-up to include DiSCA co-founder Alex Jones, and original team members Richard Hill,Martin Thorpe, and Steve White.
The team will campaign the Oak Racing Pescarolo in LM P2 with support from Portuguese 3D designers Olifer for the remaining endurance events in 2018 and 2019 WEC season thereafter.
