DNS/DQ./#8/Brian Chatfield/Chatfield/Ford Capri- DQ after qualifying....
IIRC, the story according to the Autosport race reports is that after a few eyebrows were raised by the Capri's performance at Oulton, where he led the race overall for a while, Chatfield was provisionally disqualified and the stewards requested he bring the homologation papers with him when the Capri was presented for scrutineering at Thruxton a couple of days later. He duly showed up there with no homologation papers, and a different Capri (he had two, a white ex-CC car and a red ex-Spice? car-I think the white car appeared at Oulton, and the red one at Thruxton). He was promptly disqualified after qualifying, and didn't appear again until Donington in July, by which time the Capris had been replaced by a 635CSi...

*Both Brooklyn Escorts were involved in the shunt and damaged. I won't swear to it without looking it up, but the drivers may have swapped cars to enable Hodgetts to take the re-start in the less-damaged car of the pair- the other car being pretty much a write-off

A couple of changes from the entry list-Vern Schuppan appeared in the 2nd Starion, rather than Buncombe, and Mark Hales took over the second TDR Alfa from team boss Drury. Sytner's second 635 for Barrie Williams was a no-show

I'll post the rest later

Thanks a lot, KA. Your help is much appreciatet! Do you have notes about fastest lap on a class-by-class basis, as that was worth 1 bonus point?

Cracking work there KA!!

Easy to forget that whilst 1985 was a generally poor year in terms of quantity, at certain rounds there was definitely quality in the driver line up, particularly in the big class!

It leads me back to the point we've made in other threads, if only ARG and BMW GB hadn't withdrawn in 1984 etc, etc.....

BTW, wonder why Walkinshaw entered a Bastos car at that '85 Brands race, not sure we confirmed this in the Vitesse thread? Was it a shakedown for a new chassis set for ETC duty, or showing it off to a potential buyer?

Or as has been mooted, him liking to remind the series organisers what they were missing!!

I can only agree with chunterer.

Regarding The Walkinshaw victory, he didn't receive any points by the look of it. I guess he wasn't registrated for the championship and thus didn't score the 9 points for victory. But did second placed Andy Rouse get 9 points as best registrated driver or 6 points for finishing second in the race?

Graham Goode was disqualified from round 8. Was the penalty two maximum scores as was the case a few years later? Otherwise he would have won class B convincingly.

I hadn't noticed that! Just looked at the version of the points table I've got (probably from the 1985 season review in Autosport) and noticed something else interesting- Although both McGrath and Hall scored drivers championship points, there were no manufacturers championship points scored for Rover- presumably they hadn't registered either....

Before I continue with another season, I have a few random remarks about the 1985 season.

One is about variety: three classes provided plenty of different models. I think this is what the modern single class saloon/touring car championships lack.

Didn't know much about Patrick Watts before his 1990s Super Touring exploits and very flamboyant driving style. Obviously class winning potential in the previous seasons with the MG Metro Turbo, but never seemed to be in the hunt here in 1985 in the North Essex Motorsport Ford Escort RS1600i. Was the car simply not up to scratch compared to the other Escorts, as Watts scored a single third at round 4 at Donington.

Richard Belcher is not a name I'm familiar with but winning class C on four occations taking second in class from Alan Curnow in the Datapost Escort. Is the John Jeffreys Engineering Escort the same white/blue/red car that ended down under in late 1986?

Always thought of John Morris as a Volkswagen racer, but here he's racing a second Brooklyn Escort.

Looking at class B, the turbo cars of Graham Goode and later Richard Longman was streets ahead of the ageing Alfa GTV6s. Four of those raced on a regular basis. The Terry Drury cars seems to have disappeared towards the end of the year though.

Of the class A runners, I'm most impressed by Neil McGrath finishing third in class. Again a driver I know little of but he finished all his 11 starts, somehow missing at round 10 at Brands Hatch in August.

Enough of that, as I will look a 1983 installment for tomorrow likely.
