A massive selection of cars from the Aldon championship were entered in the B.O.C. members meeting on a very warm July day at Prescott. All our classes were nicely positioned in the lower paddock - it really shows the scale & depth of quality machinery when the cars can be seen all together.
13 cars took part on the day. Ian Moss proved to be the class of the field in his Mk1 Escort RS1600 with a great time in the mid 48's. The next 4 drivers were covered by only 0.63 seconds but were a whole second behind the flying Ian. Next best was Trevor Shortt (49.63) followed by Garry Cox (49.93), both in matching Scimitar Coupes. Simon Braithwaite was the second Escort (50.06) followed by similar cars of Mark Linforth & Mark Hobbs , making his debut in a brand new & very shiny Mk2 RS2000.
