The BOC / Aldon championship competitors made up approximately half the overall entry at AMOC's end of season Curborough event. The reduced numbers from previous years meant that both timed runs were completed by mid-afternoon making for a very compact day appreciated (I think) by all.
Saloon cars featured a Scimitar vs Escort scrap for the best overall times. Trevor Shortt, making a return after a break of a few meetings, was fastest with a great time placing him 7th overall in the whole meeting. Steve Louch was second in the GTE version just ahead of Simon Braithwaite in the sideways Escort. Handicap for the championship was won by Roger Beard in another Scimitar Coupe from Trevor followed by Andy Clarke in his mini.
Sportscars had a entry of six cars with Mike Fisher entered but a no-show on the day. Fastest was Iain Daniels in the rapid Reliant Sabre Six once again highlighting the speed of this lovely looking car. Nick Stephens was second in his Ginetta from John Newton in the TVR Vixen. Handicap results placed Mike Henney first from Callum Barney (MG Midget) with Steve Phennah in third in the MGB Roadster.
Single seater & Sports Racing cars was a Mallock benefit with Peter Thurston out front in his version ,running in a new diff prior to Prescott, from Philip Stader in his slightly younger car from Martin Jones in the Brabham. Handicap victor was also Peter from Les Buck (Pringlett Mistrale FF1600) from Philip.
The pace of the Classic class shouldnt be underestimated as the fastest from our championship filled 3 of the 4 fastest overall times in the whole meeting - only beaten by a modern bike engined single seater.
