Built "Probe" over winter 2015/6 with intent of gaining more inside weight and to improve strength Couple of heat wins in new car, still waiting for first Final. Highest grade held - Red

Other Racing Formula History: Started in BriSCA Ministox late 1978, made Red grade briefly in 1982. 1983 (at age 16) moved into BriSCA F2 Stock Cars, 'retiring' 27 years later. Only major title won in F2's was the 1993 "King of Shale", the first and only winner, as the event was dropped after the first year .Technically, therefore, the "Reigning King of Shale"

Comments: Really appreciate the time, effort and cash that Terry puts into our racing.
