Sam Thomas Racing and FEV at the Silverstone Classic

We were very happy to be at the fantastic Silverstone classic last month to show our support for Sam Thomas Racing.

Sam Thomas Racing specialise in historic racing cars from their restoration and race preparation to race support and sale preparation. Sam and the team can often be found on track as well as working with owners on their own cars. As with all racing cars, fire safety is not only important, it is a legal requirement to be able to compete, so we were really excited to see one of our fire extinguisher systems being used in a Sam Thomas Racing classic race car at this iconic event.

The STR team took 4 cars to the event; a classic BMW, Brabham BT5, Lister “Ecurie Ecosse” Knobbly and a Lola 212 which Sam himself drove.  We are looking to supply our fire extinguisher systems to many of the STR race cars in the future.

Classic racing is something magical and we are very happy to play a part in it. These amazing cars should be heard and smelt as well as be seen flying round a track, all too many classics are stuck in museums or private collections and it’s a shame people don’t get to enjoy them more. We love supporting and helping anyone who wants to get classic cars out on the road or track and can supply a number of different types of fire extinguisher system for classic and modern cars.
