Season 31-Joe Shaw Trophy – Carthage
For several years UKGPL has staged a Joe Shaw Trophy series in remembrance of young Joe Shaw ( Beefpie) who raced with us before his tragic death. He was a seriously quick driver both here at GPL and in Real life motor sport.
As usual we will be using the original 67 cars and the points won over the three races will decide who gets their hands on the magnificent trophy that Malcolm Shaw ( Joe's father) has provided. The winner might like to join us at Brands Hatch for the race weekend on the 1st July where hopefully Malcom will join us to present the trophy.
Points are awarded on the historic scale, 9 for a win down to 1 point for 6th. The series will run over three rounds at Carthage, Tripoli & Adelaide.
For Round 1 we visit Tunisia, Northern Africa, to race at the dusty Carthage Street Circuit. It is a very fast 7.816 mile triangular highway circuit at the Tunisian coast line. We will use the 1935 version of Carthage (carta35).
