9th April 2017

RACE 1

Alex Montgomery, MGBV8, won his first race in the championship after a
long, close battle with Bruce Mitchell, Lotus Europa. A spin at the last corner demoted Mitchell to third, as he was passed by Alastair Baptie, Fiat X1/9. Ian Blacklin was fourth, in a Ford Capri 3000.

Early leader, Tommy Gilmartin, Morgan +8, and second placed Harry Simpson,
Ginetta G4R, retired after two laps following a collision, shown in video below.
Miraculously, both were unhurt.

Michael Longstaffe, MG Midget, competed in the championship for the first time.

RACE 2

Montgomery was unable to start race two due to a problem on the starting grid.
Mitchell took the lead and was never headed, despite the best efforts of Baptie,
both drivers achieving new class records during this race. This was the first win for Mitchell. Blacklin came third, followed by Calum McRae, TVR350i.

Next event is at Knockhill on May 7th.

7th May 2017


Morgan +8 driver Tommy Gilmartin qualified fastest and won both races
in front of a considerable crowd at sunny Knockhill.
Great racing throughout the fifteen car grid, featuring new cars – Alasdair Coates’
Shelby Cobra and Max Horne, Ford Escort Twin Cam, and first Knockhill race for
Scott Brennan, Ford Mustang.

Coates and Raymond Boyd, Porsche 911, were second and third respectively in each race. Bruce Mitchell, Lotus Europa, took fourth place in race one and a new class record. Alex Montgomery, MGBV8 and Jimmy Crow, Escort RS2000, completed the top six in the first race. The order changed in race two, places four to six taken by Montgomery, Crow followed by Mitchell.

Alastair Baptie, Fiat X1/9, leads the championship, having a perfect score of four class wins.

On June 3rd &4th rounds five and six will take place, accompanied by the regular Scottish championships & HSCC Super Tourers, National Formula Ford and Junior Saloon Cars.
