Round 2 - Prescott

In a total contrast to the first round of the series, the second meeting at Prescott was blessed with fantastic weather  - and possibly the largest entry of classic cars yet seen at a single meeting for the Aldon / BOC championship.

 

14 entries in the Saloon car class saw the overall pace being set by Garry Cox in his Scimitar Coupe 'Lemon Slice' . Back on his favoured Kumho tyres, Garry once again set a very good time well into the 49 second bracket only a fraction off his handicap. Simon Braithwaite in the Escort was next fastest with a 50.97 , also outside his handicap by 2 tenths. Newcomer to the series Trevor Shortt (in another Scimitar Coupe) was third fastest overall on 51.25 seconds.

Alex & Jennifer Howells were new runners in their shared Hillman Imp.

Saloon handicap placings for the championship were -  1st Roger Beard 55.70 seconds , 2nd Matt Clarke 51.47 seconds , 3rd Trevor Shortt 51.25 seconds.
