Welcome to FriesianRacing.co.uk!  We are a small enthusiastic motor sport team, who compete in a number of different motor sport disciplines on a budget, but with a professional outlook. The unusual team name comes from the unusual cow coloured liveries that the team’s cars sport in their racing campaigns.  Initially this was just chosen as a cheap way to cover up bad paint finish on the cars, but it has proven such a hit with the team and our fans, that it is now a permanent fixture and has become the team motif! 

DiscoverySport concentrate on off road racing events in the UK and in
Europe with our V8 Land Rover Discovery rally car – MuddyMoo.  Click here for more information.

FriesianTarmacSport compete on sealed surface rallies around the
UK with our 200BHP Peugeot 205 Gti16 – MiniMoo.
 Click here for more information.

And Friesian Historic Rally Sport campaign on the Mintex British Historic Rally Championship in our 1967 Singer Chamois Sport.

This website will keep you up-to-date with all the exciting developments and news from the team and their exploits.

    My white Disco is called Daisy and I have long thought about applying fresian patches like yours. I think it looks really smart but I have a feeling I would keep scratching through the vinyl (if I did it that way rather than paint) when I go greenlaning…

    Anyway, smart motor, and I like the site.

    keep it up.

    Hi Simon, thanks for your kind words.

    I started out with vinyl (Fablon) patches and they actually lasted really well despite taking trees down the side of the car at speed. The other advantage is that if you tear them you can easily patch or replace them – they also protect the paint underneath.

    On the flip side paint is easier to apply and all our patches will now be sprayed on – on MuddyMoo anyway!

    Interesting project. Sounds great!
    I may mention your existence to the British Friesian Cattle Breeders Club? I’m sure they’d be tickled by the reference (i.e. Friesian, not Holstein)!

    Hello there,

    I was driving in the area of Shipston on Sour and saw a Passat with a sticker on the back of the car with the text friesianracing.co.uk. So you might say; what is so special?
    It is to me, I was born and raised in a small village in Friesland, Holland called Oudega Smallingerland. And yes, my dad had a farm there and had approx 140 Friesians (the Cows then). Hopefully you can image that I don’t see the name Friesland every day on the back of a car and was quite curious of what you were doing (in all fairness, people riding a Friesian cow did cross my mind for a second). For what I can see on your site (very good one by the way), it looks a very good and professional project and has my interest as I liked to race cars in my dad’s fields back in Friesland when I was younger. I will put the site into my favourite box and when you are in the Manchester Area you can count on my support!

    With best Regards,

    Wieger Faber

    Hi Wieger,

    Sorry not to respond sooner – I thought your interesting post required a proper reply, so I put it off until I could do it justice! I didn’t mean to leave it months!

    That was certainly my Passat that you spotted, I don’t often get up Shipston way, but a number of our support crew are based thereabouts so I am there occasionally.

    I am thrilled that you spotted the sticker, remembered the site and then looked us up and your connection with both Friesland, Friesian cattle and thrashing around in cars is great to hear! We already have a fan who heralds from Friesland – Mo Brinkman who has taken some of the best photos on this site!

    Thanks for your kind words about the site. We are definitely amateurs, but like to do things in a professional manner.

    We haven’t got many events planned in the Manchester area at the moment, but that may change. We haven’t yet finalised our plans for this season, but thanks anyway for your support.

    Best regards

    Henry and the Friesian Racing herd!

      No worries Robin, it was great to meet you. It is always good to meet people new to the sport. I am constantly keen to try and get people involved. It was really refreshing to hear your enthusiasm for what I regard as the best sport there is!

      If you need any help or have any questions feel free to drop us a line.
