Round 2 of the 2022 Bugatti Owners Club / FASSI Classic Speed Championship took place at the club's home venue of Prescott Hillclimb.
The venue is back to looking great following extensive work by the new ground-staff who are doing a cracking job. The weather conditions were strange having reverted back to coldish temperatures after a week of warm perhaps un-seasonal sunshine. Overcast and chilly eventually changed into sunny and clear throughout the Sunday running of the event.
The most numerous class was once again Classic Saloon cars with a healthy field with great variety. The handicap win was taken by a returning Mark Maynard in his spectacularly driven Hillman Imp. Sideways everywhere, Mark finished 1.6 seconds under his previous best with a now properly sorted engine aiding the powerslides! Second on handicap was Peter Hall in the first of three baby Fiat's - all of slightly different types. Brian Ashley was third in the A35 , already looking like a solid contender across the season if he can keep up this early scoring rate. Fastest saloon car went to the Escort of Simon Braithwaite , not quite matching his second practice but still under the 50 second barrier.
Sportscars was won on handicap by Charles Boulton in the MGB V8. Stephen Akers was second in his Lotus Elan from a returning Doug Chipperfield in the rapid orange MG Midget - Doug also claiming fastest time in the sportscar class.
Single seaters and sport racing cars was won on handicap by Jeremy Rivers-Fletcher in the Triumph special, second was Christopher Wigdor in his Ukrainian Humanitarian Appeal liveried Mallock , third was Local ace Martin Jones in the lovely Elva Mk7 twincam. Fastest in the class by a long way was Peter Thurston in the other early Mallock , storming to a fastest time across the whole classic entry by a comfortable margin.
