Something New this Year for us and Supporting a Driver who we worked with couple years ago.
Charlie Butler Henderson will be doing something different this year and hitting the Mini Championships with his new F56
We worked with Henderson couple years ago in the S2000 at Silverstone and we are very much excited to catch up with him again and support him this year and the team with impacting photos from behind the scenes and out on track where all the action takes place.
Below is some images we took with Henderson
Charlie started racing in karts at the age of 8. His interest in motorsport stems from a large family influence, as his Grandfather, Lionel, used to race Frasher Nash cars at Brooklands.
From karting Charlie progressed up the motor racing ladder, and began racing cars in 1995.
For 2010 Charlie has been contesting the Trofeo Abarth 500 GB Championship as well as the Time Attack series, doubling his track efforts for the first time.
With Henderson behind the wheel in the new F56 is something that Charlie cannot wait to get in and start racing. With a few year experience racing on these tracks, he is keen to make a good impression to the team who have signed him up.
Joining the Team Oakfield Motorsport was set up late 2010 by Neil Newstead and Stephen Ruxton-Cocker who prepared a 1997 BMW 328i for racing in the 2011 MSVR Track Day Trophy.
The team enjoyed a huge success during 2011. MSVR TDT saw three first’s and two seconds. The team also entered MSV Team Trophy at the end of the year and finished first.
In 2011 and 2012 the team developed the car with a new M3 engine, and a massive change with the running gear and again had great success finishing the championship 2nd in class in 2011, 2012 was a more challenging year with a number of incidents, reflecting only finishing 9th, however Neil still managed to take 6 podiums with a win at his home track, Brandshatch.
