Spookworks seeded 22nd for this weekends Woodbridge Stages

This weekend sees Spookworks back in the thick of the action after a disastrous run on the Jane Cowling Phoenix Stages, Fulbeck were the team retired due to a fire on Stage 5.

Seeded 22nd in a field of over 82 cars, the team are hoping for a reversal of fortune in the 60 mile event as Spookworks boffins fueled entirely by hummus, fully repaired the car back to its former glory.

A boffin hard at work at the top secret Spookworks tech centre.  We did not have the heart to tell him the damage was at the front in the engine bay. 

Spookworks Technical Director explains:

"Sadly the damage caused by the fire was quite extensive.  The boffins have been really putting in the hours and the car has been totally reworked for this weekend.  Obviously I can't go into all the detail but we used the damage as an opportunity to bring forward some developments in the car.  We definitely have a stronger and more powerful package than we have fielded all year - we just need a bit of luck. The guys have a crate of Fanta on standby just in case."

Splash back to 2012.  Spookworks had a damp day of drama with problems exhausting the team all day.  In a miracle finish Spookworks came home 18th overall and 7th in class.  Thankfully it netted just enough points to help seal their 3rd consecutive championship.
Currently residing 4th in the 2013 RAF Rally Championship, Spookworks join 4 other RAF entries including their old sparring partner John Franklyn Price who is seeded at 32nd at this weekend Woodbridge Stages held at err....Woodbridge in Suffolk.
