DAVE BOUCHER, from Stratton Heights Cirencester, has won this year’s 750 Motor Club/Yokohama Locost National Championship – with a little help from Melksham driver Matt Cherrington.
Boucher’s home-built and prepared car competed in 13 rounds of the championship at all the major motor racing circuits in the UK.
When Boucher was unable to race himself due to work commitments, Cherrington proved a more-than-able deputy.
The duo enjoyed a string of race wins and podium finishes and were out of the top ten only once.
Along the way, they broke three lap records in their class, most notably at Donnington Park where Cherrington clipped 2.01 seconds off the existing best time.
The pair eventually won the championship by 13 points from their nearest rivals, last year’s winning team, Richard and Sam Bradley, a father and son team from near Louth in Linconshire.
With the champagne still flowing, thoughts have moved on to making the car even more competitive in 2013.
Dave Boucher would like to thank Simon Lafford from Abbey Way Services Cirencester for his support throughout the 2012 season.
