Interesting. I knew a couple of road legal mallocks existed but thought they were "private" ventures, although I'm sure I read an interview with "the major" many, many years ago when he said he regretted not doing a 7 esque car for the road. The picture you have shown could have made a fabulous alternative to the Caterhams of the time.

2nd July 2017

Alastair Baptie, Fiat X1/9,extended his championship lead after two class wins at a poorly supported meeting. Several drivers were absent due to mechanical problems, holidays etc. Crowd numbers were noticeably less than at the previous event.

Despite the small entry, there was close racing at the throughout the field.
Both races were won by fastest qualifier, Tommy Gilmartin, Morgan +8.
Bruce Mitchell, Lotus Europa, was second on each occasion.

Former Fiesta racer, Charlie Cope, joined the championship in a VW Golf GTI 1800.
An impressive first event in this car resulted in two third place finishes.

Neil MacKay made a guest appearance in his smart looking Austin Mini.

The next event, on 20th August, will be the first run in reverse direction at Knockhill by The Scottish Motor Racing Club. Hopefully, there will be an increased number of Classics competitors.

An exciting day’s reverse direction racing at Knockhill last Sunday, included the first victory for John Kinmond, Rover SD1 and a win for regular front-runner, Tommy Gilmartin, Morgan +8.
The new track layout proved successful for Classic competitors, qualifying and races passing without incident. (Some other formulae experienced accidents and delays.)

Fastest qualifier, Gilmartin, won the first race by ten seconds from Raymond Boyd, Porsche 911. Charlie Cope, Golf GTI, was third, Kinmond fourth, Alastair Baptie, Fiat X1/9, fifth. Ian Blacklin, Ford Capri, came sixth, just ahead of Mario Ferrari in an Alfasud Sprint – both cars circulating as if they were attached, for much of the race. Calum Mcrae, TVR, was next, with William Conway, Mini Cubman, Grant Allan, Porsche 914 in tenth place.
Alex Montgomery raced his recently acquired FIA MGB at Knockhill for the first time and took eleventh place. The Lotus Europa of Bruce Mitchell was declared a non-finisher after a spin close to the end of the race. Misfortune for Michael Longstaffe who retired his MG Midget after five laps.


Gilmartin couldn’t start race two due to gearbox and engine problems. Kinmond led from lap one, chased by Boyd, less than half a second behind at the end. Less than a second separated
third placed Baptie from Mitchell in fourth place. The remaining competitors finished in order: Blacklin, Ferrari, McRae, Conway, Montgomery. Grant Allan retired his Porsche 914,after having climbed to sixth place, on his first outing with this car. Disappointment too for Cope whose race ended during lap four.

Photos attached.

The next event is at Knockhill on 10th September.

10th September

Alastair Baptie, Fiat X1/9, is the 2017 champion.
A class win in race one was sufficient to guarantee him the title with one event remaining this year.

Several drivers were absent due to mechanical problems and the annual visit to the Spa 6 Hours support races.

Raymond Boyd, Porsche 911, qualified fastest and won both races in miserable conditions. John Kinmond, Rover SD1, and Harry Simpson, Ginetta G4R, were second and third respectively in each race.

No photos from the meeting – one photo attached - the champion’s car from earlier this year.

Since the last rounds of the championship in September, several competitors attended Spa 6 Hours support races – photos attached.

8th October

Thirteen cars attended the final event of 2017 in fine autumnal weather at Knockhill. Fastest in qualifying and winner of race one was Tommy Gilmartin, Morgan +8. Alistair Baptie raced his MGBV8 into second qualifying position and won the second race from Gilmartin.
Harry Simpson was third fastest qualifier and third in each race in the nimble Ginetta G4R.
Welcome returnee, Andy Smith, Morgan +8, had epic battles in each race with Raymond Boyd, Porsche 911. The Morgan just ahead in each contest.
The increasingly competitive Lotus Europa of Bruce Mitchell was sixth in each race.
Further back there was close racing amongst the Ford Escorts of Jimmy Crow and Max Horne, the Capri of Ian Blacklin and Mario Ferrari’s Alfa Sprint Trofeo.
MG Midget driver Ian Longstaffe retired at the start of race one but managed to repair his car to complete race two. Sadly, mechanical difficulties sidelined the Mini Clubman GT of William Conway.

Another entertaining season, albeit with often low entries. Scottish Motor Racing Club are looking at ways of boosting numbers for next year.

Love seeing a 1500 Sud Sprint fighting hard with a Capri with an engine twice the size!
