The MJC Limited entered Ferrari 430 GTC won the 2010 Britcar 24 Hours (full story HERE) on Silverstone Circuit. But the good new is that a V8 engined TVR Sagaris entered bu GTF completed the race. It was the first TVR to perform this result at Silberstone and the only TVR to complete a 24 since the T400Rs at Le Mans.

Gary Lindley (GB) and Tim Hood (GB) had some troubles during the battle: a suspected gearbox (noisy) so they came in and changed it but on investigation the gearbox would have been OK for the duration; some minor stuff with electrics bought them in again wipers/demisters and an ECU, due to the fact that its a race car and it was p1ssing down for practically the whole race…but they’ve now had a chance to check everything over before loading up and everythings fine. And they succeeded!!

Anyway: we cannot forget that the TVR 400R competed in the Le Mans 24 Hours in 2004 and 2005. Even if she arrived in 21st position in 2004 (in 2005 she did not finish the race), it was very successful: a race Speed-6 engine worked for 24 hours at full steam.
