Driver – Lance Foster lives in Washington Tyne and Wear, married with two expensive children and has been competing in various forms of motor sport since the early nineties, driving only competition minis prepared by Green and White. He is the only employee of Green and White and has worked for Ian Sandwith for over 25 years.
Autograss was the first step into motor sport using a 1500 mini in class six, much success followed with his best finish being second in the british autograss series , at this time most people had given up on the mini for more modern machinery but Green and White knew that there was still life in the old dog yet.
After grassing Lance and Ian rebuilt the rallycross car ’45’ which Ian Sandwith campaigned during the 80s-90s, Ian had many fans who loved to see the little mini putting the big cars to shame around the national circuits of the nineties, Ian’s rallycross career was sadly cut short during the 92 season with a serious neck injury at Nutts Corner ending the career of a very talented and very popular driver from formula C.
Lance started using the car in local autocross events to much success gaining many class and overall wins. Ian and Lance then turned their attention back to rallycross doing as many local events as possible, much success followed with many “giant killing” finshes. Lance’s best finish on the national stage was champion in the revivals class in 2009 of the Open Championship and also the overall driver of the year award again presented for racing wheel to wheel with much more powerful cars.
“we look forward to the Retro Rallycross Championship and have no doubt this will give our car and many other wonderful machines a stage on which to be great once again”.
