Author Larry Jeram-Croft spent thirty years in the Royal Navy as a pilot and engineer. He retired in 2000 only to return to work in industry for a further seven years before retiring for a second time. At that point he and his wife bought a yacht and went to live in the Caribbean.
Now back in the UK and living in Somerset, Larry returns to the championship after a 14 year break.
He first started competing in 1988 in a TR7 Sprint and went on to win the Championship in 1992 in a V8. He was also one of the organisers of the Register Sprints at HMS Daedalus and then Boscombe Down. In the late nineties he also competed in the TR Rregister race series for six years, coming second in 1999 and gaining several race wins. After that he went on to single seaters with the Monoposto club again winning several races and their winter championship in 2001. He finally joined the Classics and Sports Car Club and competed in an MG Maestro for 2 season in two driver races with his son.
His car was purchased late 2018. It had been rebuilt in 2003 and hardly turned a wheel after that. It was extensively re-rebuilt over the winter. Every single rubber component had to be replaced. It now runs a tuned 3.9 litre V8 on a Holley, Quaife LSD, uprated suspension and brakes and is also used to go shopping and to the Golf Club
Larry competes in the big boys class 2C, but not in the race car shown above.
