Andy Clegg should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
I've a program in front of me from Oulton Park in 1975. Formula 5000 lap record was 1.06.2s (89.85mph) by Dave Walker (Chevron B28). Outright lap record was 57.0s (104.46mph) by Tony Brise and Nick May in Formula Atlantic (Brise in a Modus and May in a Lola).
When I was taking photos at Shenington, I seem to remember Scott Allen 125cc kart seeing off a Porsche 911 GT2 on a local circuit. I suppose it would have been a tight circuit.

That can't have been on the same circuit, else the F5000s never ran when it was dry.

That F5000 lap record was set during the snowy(!) Good Friday meeting (it was the 1st year of racing on the Fosters circuit). I think Alan Jones set the first representative record in his F5000 March at 55.0s.

I drove a div1 superkart at donington in the same meeting as classic f1 and was about the same lap time as a 1975 ex Niki Lauda Ferrari 312T, which must have been quicker than a 1967 car....
