Round 7 - Shelsley Walsh

Sunday's Classic Nostalgia Meeting continued the same theme but with a different mix of cars in some classes. The weather played a significant factor on the day with some competitors catching a lucky break with the running order - this can obviously go either way so is just really luck on the day & it's a quirk of this meeting with age based classes.

Competitors who had also competed on Saturday were slightly advantaged having already had an afternoon of slithering around on the previous days wet track.

 

The meeting was halted early after a single seater dropped its oil in top ess , this was followed by another competitor having a sizeable accident on the resulting slippery surface. This meant that all the Aldon / BOC runners results are based on a single timed run.

 

Saloon cars had a totally different set of drivers to saturday. The times were headed by John Louch (Scimitar GTE) but the handicap winner was Ian Stainburn who now leads the class overall at the midpoint of the season. Third on handicap was Terry Cox.

 

Racing cars was won on handicap by Phil Fisher in his Mallock making it a clean sweep over the two events. Philip Stader survived a moment at Top Ess in his Mallock to take second place, Series sponsor Alan Goodwin took another podium place having had a great weekend in his Aldon sports racing car. Fastest by a long way was Andy Tippett using the power of the big V8 to good effect.
