After a year and a half we've finally done it !! The first event under our belt it's been a big journey getting here but after having no wipers the first run and losing power steering all weekend we have managed 5th overall 👍 thank you Sam Fitzpatrick for keeping in the right direction and thanks to all those involved setting up / running the event and the course marshalls it's all greatly appreciated!! Cant wait for Round 2 at Driffield where I hope we can do some more stallion driving like we did today.
A couple of weeks ago Cameron Jones got invited by the BBC to do some filming with #topgear for the #extragear program, it was season 2 episode 5 !! He was asked to take his Milner R5 to Tong alongside Protection and Performace Milner, so they could film them going head to head. They were filming an off road special which was following on from the top gear team visit to the King of the Hammers.
This has been a fantastic experience and opportunity to have been given. Following the day of filming we were then invited to go to the studio for the filming in the studio. This was aired on TV on Sunday 2nd April, if you missed it and want to have a look please go to the following link;
I would like to thank those who continue to show support and encouragement towards Cam and his racing, his Co-pilot Sam Fitzpatrick, Sponsors Cam Suzuki SFM Caravans R Bunton Ltd Jess Wright GraphicsContact Fabrications, and all those behind the scenes who help get him #raceready.
DRIFFIELD - 15TH/16TH April 2017
Starting off on Saturday having a few issues at first but overall a good day finishing in 5th overall.
We almost had this one in the bag but these moments are sent to test us, and on Sunday part way around the track the steering wheel came off completely in Camerons Hand cuasing us to retire...

Where to start 😂after a long old haul down to Anglesey Cam and Sam managed to finish 1st out of the NORC championship and 4th in the interclub championship!! This has put us in a good position for the overall championship only separating us from Huggy by one point !!! It finally seems like everything is coming together (although we did loose the rear end of the car) 😂 but a great effort and a good achievement for the team who I couldn't do it without !! So a big big big thanks to Sam Fitzpatrick his dad Micheal, James for all the late garage nights and my dad for all his support and last but not least Mr B for coming along. Thanks to all the event organisers and volunteers who give up there own time for us to enjoy the sport we all love 🏁 and another big thank you to our sponsors who always stand by us through thick and thin !! #thorntonbreakers #contactfabrications #sfmcaravans #rbuntonplanthire
