Round 6 - shelsley walsh

Shelsley Walsh 'Classic Nostaglia' 2018 kicked off on the Saturday with a fresh, crisp morning much to relief of many left struggling with weeks of sweltering weather and 30+ degree temperatures.

Little did we know what Mother Nature had in store for us over the weekend!

Very changeable conditions in practice, with sudden showers, then within minutes a bone dry track, made way for much heavier downpours in the afternoon. Whilst unpleasant it did level the playing field with pretty much identical conditions for most - wet & slippery!

Matt Clarke did his usual Mini wet track madness with the best handicap time in the Saloon car class. Ian Moss & yours truly had a great scrap all day with the Escort Mk1's, trading times and always within a few tenths. Nigel Moss in his rapid Imp got a fine third.

Phil Fisher in his Mallock took the handicap win in the Racing & Sports Racing car class, beating Series sponsor Alan Goodwin and MG Special mounted Mike White. This was a large class (mainly amalgamated into 1960's racing cars) and with the cars arranged in a prime spot in the main paddock it looked really good.

A small class of Sportscars was won by Peter Joy in the Lotus Seven - gaining the benefit of running earlier in better conditions. Mike Henney & Callum Barney filled the other two class positions, from Mike Fisher (MGB), Thomas Robinson (911) & Jeremy Smithson (Elan).
