overall results on the day

An incredibly hot day was endured by the Classic competitors at this annual trek to the BARC's great venue. Temperatures of around 30 deg C amazingly took little toll on the machinery with the exception of Peter Joy's lovely alloy bodied Lotus 7 which blew a core plug on the first timed run - at least he got over the finish line to record a respectable time!.

 

 

 

Simon Braithwaite set the fastest Saloon time in the Escort Mk1 with identical timed afternoon runs.

 

With a break of less than a week the championship now moves to round 5 at Prescott next saturday.
