This weekend took place the 2nd round of the CRMC at Lydden Hill in Kent (UK). Alex Sinclair won the 4 races in his class (500 Grand Prix) and, as the classes are mixed, he finished second in 3 of the 4 races in the 500 Clubman class behind the very fast Royal Enfield piloted by Olie Linsdell who is usually on a par with the best Manx and G50. In the third race, Alex even finished first in front of the Royal Enfield.

“Our engine is actually very close to the Royal Enfield engine in performance, in fact I think it does not grant him anything. However the cream of the Cammies was not there but one team which usually is on a par with the Royal Enfield, so we had a standard to evaluate us.” said Patrick Godet.

Note as well that the team’s second racer not ready on time for this weekend so Patrick had to make the tactical decision to cancel the participation at the Sachsenring in Germany where Bruno Leroy should have been racing this week-end.

The performance of the Egli-Vincent 500 Racer has improved since the beginning of the season in a few hour of racing, proof that the design foundations are great.
