The time has come for Fossa Ford Anglia’s final race. Six and a half years, 🙁 ….
We have been in the fortunate position to race from a very scary first race in July 2012 with appearances at Zwartkops Raceway, Kyalami, Midvaal, Redstar and Dezzi Raceway.
We are very grateful for the opportunities experienced, the awesome racing and the odd dice with our slower Anglia and me, the slower driver. We have seen cars start at the bottom rising through the classes as they and their drivers improved. We have seen the decline of competitors in our classes and spectators.
The total cost of motor racing. The unreliability of service providers which also do not come free, in whose hands you put your car, yourself and fellow competitors, the reason for all the DIY. The solo maintenance and repairs is really not fun anymore. For years other priorities and projects have taken a back seat, and the odd trip to a peaceful dam somewhere …
A final all out service, tuning etc, and coming Saturday 3 November will be all out, balls to the wall racing with nothing to lose. Hou vas my bier, laat ek jou wys wat hierdie Anglia kan doen ….. Listen for some moaning of those semi’s.
I will keep Fossa as a road car and slowly at my leisure do some needed “repairs” and improvements and on completion plan to run her at four track days a year. I will keep the tuxracing.com website active for another two or so years with the odd updates on ol’ faithful, Fossa Ford Anglia.
To all our supporters, thanks, it was much appreciated, thanks a lot! It was fun and we will miss it. To all our fellow competitors, thanks for the camaraderie!! Cheers friends, will keep an eye on you at some of the cheaper events!
Special thanks to my wife for making all of this possible as sponsor, often mechanic and chief supporter.
Thanks to my son for the late nights …
Thanks both for your role playing as photographers for our website and lasting memories.
Regards, Fossa Ford Anglia – The Star, Annalie – The Tea-m Manager and Chief Sponsor, Chris – The Roach and Chris – The Driver.
