What a weekend! Heavy rain forecast for Saturday never really materialsed thank goodness and although it was wet it wasn't too bad at all. A thin entry on Day 1 didn't detract from a great days sport and everyone enjoyed themselves. Shaun Elwell took FTD in his Lotus 7 while Simon Rogers who was expected to do well sat it out with no wet weather tyres available. The marshals were hero's, we couldn't run without these people and their time is much appreciated.
Sunday dawned dry and bright and a much larger entry enjoyed ideal conditions. FTD went to Simon Rogers but he didn't manage to break his hill record but managed to equal it exactly! Thanks again to all the hill, paddock and start marshals, a sterling job done by all. The club had a couple of competitors out, James & Lisa Chappelle both had a go in their Mini on Sunday and James won the class. Lisa had taken the award on Saturday so hopefully there won't be any arguments in that household with an award each!
Events sponsors Brian & Tim Dennis were fully competitive and both won their classes on Saturday despite Brian failing to finish his second run with fuel pump failure. Tim won again on Sunday and Sam Davies aired Brian's Citroen C2 and narrowly missed out on a class win against much more powerful opposition. Part of the event sponsorship is provision of a breakdown truck and thanks must go to Viv Joy and his grandson for their time and enthusiasm.
Time to think about the classic tour now and then the big event, the Flatters before we get ready for classic show on August 2nd. Phew!
