In 2014, Simon & Matt, having become a close friends through business activities, founded Feathers Motor Sport as a distraction from their busy day jobs, only to find that the team, having now won two championships and raced cars at Goodwood, Pau Historic, Estoril Classic and the Algarve Classic Festival gaining 15 minutes of fame, that this has become a full time job with a great following of like minded supporters.
Matt raced in the AMOC Intermarque championship in 2014 and in 2015.
Simon achieved one of his ambitions running the FMS classic 1964 Ginetta G10 at the Goodwood Members Meeting in 2016/2017 and 2019. One day hopes to race the G10 on other iconic circuits such as Spa and Le Mans.
Since 2014 FMS raced each year in the AMOC Intermarque Championship, their amazing Porsche 968s winning the championship twice. In 2016 FMS procured the very rare and unique 1964 Ginetta G10 which has not only raced at the Goodwood Members Meeting, but also Pau Historic, Estoril Classic and the Algarve Classic Festival. Additionally, in 2017 was the overall winner of the AMOC, Innes Ireland Trophy.
The interest in FMS activities has grown to such an extent that in 2018 the Team, were running three Porsche 968s, the Ginetta G10, and a historic 911 2.7 RS. Resulting at a big race there being in the FMS garages as many as 8 drivers, 3 engineers, 3 support members running pit boards and timing, a catering manager and typically 25 supporters.
The sister company Feathers Life Style (FLS) considers that FMS has become an opportunity for their clients to experience personally the excitement of following a successful, vibrant motor racing team. In the future we hope to involve more of our clients.
2019, FMS changed their stable of cars, replacing the Porsche 968s with a Ginetta G55 GT4, which ran in the AMOC, GT Challenge. We were delighted that again the Ginetta G10 was invited to the Goodwood Members Meeting, a real tribute to this unique piece of English motor racing history. To finish the 2019 season the Ginetta G55 GT4, raced at Donington with the prestigious GT Cup. In which FMS plan to compete in 2020. In October 2019 the G10 successfully raced at both the Estoril Classic and Algarve Classic, for details of dates, please see the calendar or for any further information, contact [email protected]
