Looks like some races at least have been in dry conditions! (according to TSL- http://www.tsl-timing.com/event/173191 )

Good to see young Mr Bryant out in the family Morgan, giving Keith A and father and son Paterson a good race, by the looks of it. Less than a second between first two at the end!

Well done Brian A for winning his class in Equipe GTS, and finishing so high in the general classification. Interesting that fastest race lap was attributed to a car that finished way down, and was a few seconds slower on every other tour..... Timing error, short cut, or a banzai lap?

Only one shower and a few spots all day. Lots of dirty weather either side of the circuit. Currently wall to wall sunshine and warm
Excellent entries and good racing as usual for the BDC .

Shame that this meeting normally seems to coincide with the HSCC Croft Nostalgia Festival (where it's been sunny all day of course!).

Thank you Mike for your kind words - 5th overall is not bad for a tiddler of 1216cc, but I was better in practice.

TSL seemed to be having a number of problems during the day, and certainly the fastest lap quoted for our race is clearly wrong.

But a good days racing even though the only rain happened to come at the start of our race.

Excellent event, ran ahead of time all day.
Glad the Fiscar driver who lost a wheel and ended up on his roof in the Luffield gravel was able to get out and walk away seemingly just shaken.
Good to chat to Mr T.
A batch from the first of two entertaining Morgan races:
