Synergy Motorsport TVRs – Sebring & Beyond
”Yes, we’ve got our Sebring entries in, for two cars,” confirms Bob Berridge.

The entrant’s name is a new one, Synergy Motorsport. “Gareth Evans has taken a financial stake in the team, and he’ll be driving in some of the races this year.”

Evans drove for the CDL team in British GTs in 2003, also in a TVR.

“At the moment our season is looking like Sebring, Le Mans, the LMES, a couple of rounds of the FIA GT Championship – and the odd outing in British GTs.

“The ‘Les Femmes Pour Le Mans” car at Sebring will be Amanda and Liz (Amanda Stretton and Liz Halliday) and a third lady yet to be sorted out …. and we’re talking to 14 drivers for the ‘male’ car. They’re all serious drivers too.

“It’s looking as though Michael Caine will definitely be one of our drivers for Le Mans.”

Berridge has had three top engineers working on the front suspension of the Tuscan T400Rs (an issue he explained at the 1000 Km in November), and “that’s all sorted out.”

“Hugh Chamberlain’s crew are busy rebuilding the cars, and we’ll have them ready for testing in early March, and then fly them out to Sebring on the 11th.”

This will be the second Sebring trip for one of the cars – but with the new team name, there will also be a new colour scheme for the pair of TVRs for 2004.

“We’re planning a very serious assault on the Sebring and Le Mans races,” says a confident Bob Berridge. “I believe we can take the fight to the Porsches and Ferraris, but we’ll need top class drivers to be able to do that, obviously.”

Unless we can source a shot of the Synergy TVRs in testing, the first sight of the new colour scheme will be at Sebring, which is showing all the signs of being another memorable 12 Hours. This shot shows what looks like being the last time the two TVRs ran in the black and yellow livery - the Le Mans 1000 Km.
