In the Caterham department we obviously have our own familiar white and red cars to prepare to get back out on tack, and this year Hugh Coulter will be driving one too! The Caterhams that we run for out customers are also being worked on, with Christian Pittard getting a nice new orange metallic one and his brother Johnny’s black one is also being prepped. Another one we have in the garage at the moment Peter Hargroves Caterham which races in the BARC sevenesque series and his car is recovering from a crash at Brands Hatch at the last meeting so it will be in great shape for the new season.
We have two tintops in the garage at the moment which is a welcomed change. One is of a long term customer and friend, Chris Whiteman. His Honda is in being prepared for the CSCC season ahead. The other one belongs to a new customer, Andy Banham who races his Subaru Impreza in the BARC Quaife Motorsport News Saloon Car Championship. He is a successful driver having been Class runner up in both 2014 and 2015, so here’s hoping 2016 is his year!
And that’s just the race cars in the garage! We also offer full garage services for road cars, and below is a Caterham that we have just fitted freestyle suspension to.

So this does seem quite late to be doing a round up for 2105 but it feels like this is the first chance we have had to catch our breath and reflect before the whirlwind of the new 2016 season starts! We want to start by saying a huge thank you to those that supported us and all our customer last year and we look forwards to working with you all again this year!
2015 was another successful year for Boss Racing, as we added more silverware to our collection and we have been very fortunate to be recognised by so many people as being good at what we do! Once again we were recognised for our Racing with the CSCC which is always great. Graham Charmer won his class, Colin Watson was second in his class, and Tim Davis won the overall TVR trophy. Also we have been racing in the Sevenesque Series with the BARC South East and Colin Watson and Rob Singleton won the Twosomes Trophy, Best Team Effort for their race with them at Brands Hatch which was very close between the tow of them but with Rob ultimately winning!
A new award that we received this year, and one that we are really proud of, is the Motorsport Days Team of the Year award 2016!
This one is really special for us as motorsport Days readers and fans have voted for it, and it recognises all our work off track, including the garage services and track day car hire.
This award takes into consideration teams of all sizes, and the winner has surpassed expectations on all aspects of race preparation, servicing, on-circuit, transportation, facilities and hospitality. The voters’ comments speak volumes: “Well organised, friendly, high quality work”; “They provide support not only at the track but from the build of your race car, race tuition through to on track support; and “Excellent preparation, friendly towards other competitors, and support for many different cars and series.” Without doubt, this team leads by example.
