First place for Michael Caine in the Ginetta GT4 SuperCup

What. A. Race.

Our boy Michael Caine claimed his first win of the season at Thruxton today in a thrilling race which saw him bumper to boot with Will Burns for much of the race.

We caught up with Newmarket based Michael just a few minutes ago to get his thoughts on his first win in the Ginetta Cars GT4 Supercup.

Starting in pole position, but with threats from the likes of Carl Breeze, Tom Oliphant (The Oliphant in the room) and Jamie Orton ever present, there was a job to be done.

"We had an OK start. I had my eye on who was coming up my left side, but the guy on my right got off to an absolute flyer."

The commentators didn't sound convinced that Michael, or his tyres at least, could last the race but that soon changed as Michael hassled Burns throughout. And persistence paid off with a fine pass leaving Michael with his first number one slot of the season.

"It was great to get the first win. This is what we came here to do."

The eagle-eyed viewer may also have spotted the Sofia the First sticker inside the car door. We had to ask...

"I asked my young daughter on Friday if I could go racing but she said no. Then she said I could but only if she could put a sticker on my car."

Are there to be further stickers?

Negotiations for future races remain tense.

Newmarket Motor Company sponsors British Motorsport's Michael Caine
Opening rounds offer a promising start

Last week we delighted to confirm our sponsorship of one of the most talented drivers in British Motorsport, Michael Caine.

This season Michael moves into the Michelin Ginetta GT4 SuperCup and will be racing in the Amigos branded G55.

Yesterday, the opening rounds of the Michelin Ginetta GT4 Supercup got off to a slightly subdued but nonetheless promising start for Michael, who bounced back from a disappointing qualifying position.

Speaking to us this morning, Michael said it had been a testing weekend, “It’s a new car that’s not done many miles, so yes, there’s definitely some work to do.

“We were quick in the wet, but a little bit off the pace in the dry”

Despite finding himself running 0.5 second behind the pack, Michael is optimistic about the season ahead, “We’ll be doing a lot of testing over the next few week and getting some miles on the car.

“It was an OK start but we’re working to improve on that.”

Pictured here is Michael in action at Brands Hatch yesterday photographed by Ian Cutting, a Newmarket resident and keen photographer. You can see more of Ian’s pictures at https://www.flickr.com/photos/mrian77/ or follow him on Twitter:@iancutting77

Squeeeeeze!

An incredible... and incredibly selfish spot of parking here coupled with a spot of equally terribly journalism ;-)

The makeover is go

With planning permission in place the development of the showroom and forecourt can now begin. As we reel in a haze of cladding choices and paint swatches we'll share our experience and look forward to being all shiny and new.

Here's two of the sketches done by our fabulous architect!

We couldn't do a series of Newmarket shoutouts without mentioning the Jockey Club, or in this case, specifically, the Jockey Club Rooms.

And as it's great to see another local business here on The Plus, this is one shoutout that we can share across all our social media channels.

The Jockey Club has been at the very heart of British horseracing for over 250 years. As a private members club, this prestigious venue has only been seen by a privileged few... until now. 

The Jockey Club is now inviting non-members to enjoy the magnificent setting for weddings and business events.

Here's how you can see more:

Charity Golf Day raises more than £12,000!

We're delighted to share that a Charity Golf Day which we sponsored and also took part in, raised a quite brilliant, and very precise, £12,048.59.

Haverhill Golf Club played host to the event which saw 30 teams take part.

Below is the press release from the golf club detailing all the winners. Sadly we didn't manage a top three position with our valiant team scoring fifth position.

Our congratulations to the winners and thanks to Haverhill Golf Club for hosting a thoroughly enjoyable, worth and very successful event. 

St Nicholas Hospice Care Charity Golf Day at Haverhill

On Saturday 14th June, Haverhill Golf Club hosted the St Nicholas Hospice Care Charity Golf Day. In all 30 teams took part in the team of 4 event, played off full handicap with the best two scores from 4 to count.

As part of the day there was a Par 3 challenge on all the Par 3s with prizes for a hole in one that included a brand new Vauxhall Corsa, a golf holiday in Portugal, a weekend break and a set of Taylor Made golf clubs.

It was aces high for Haverhill Member Jim Day who scored a hole in one on the par 3, 129 yard 8th hole using a 7 iron, to claim his prize of a set of Taylor Made Golf Clubs. Jim also won another prize for nearest the pin in 2 on the 5th and Bryan Smy won nearest the pin in 2 on the 14th.

In the team event, Paul Chapman Plumbing & Heating -Martin Turner, Len Sanders, Chris Iron and Paul Chapman, were the clear winners with 99pts. In second place with 94pts were ‘The King Edwards’ - Spencer Tatum, Eamonn Bareham, Gerry Scott & Mich Calmet and in 3rd place with 93pts were ‘Nice Drive – Whoooooop!’ - Peter McLennan, Mark Firman, Trevor Broomfield and Roger Hartley. Winning the ‘non competition’ handicap team prize with 89pts were ‘Team June’ - Mike Brooks, Mike Taylor, Roger Springall and Andy Harling. 

In the putting competition, sponsored by Peasgood & Skeates, Haverhill Member Roger Hartley won a SkyCaddie.

The first prize in the raffle, a 32” Panasonic Smart TV, was donated by Chapman & Son and was won by Paul Chapman, and as he had already won the golf competition, he generously put the television up for auction which was eventually sold to Haverhill Member John Kennedy for £280. MJ Pipe & Sons Ltd also donated an auction item, a GDHA New World Cooker which was sold for £300.
