Malcolm Smith should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Drivers and spectators paid tribute to last year’s classic XR2 champion Martin Ramsay, who died recently. Nick Forsyth drove Martin’s car in both races, fastest on each occasion.

Pete Richards made the long journey north with his Clan Crusader for his first visit to Knockhill. Race one ended on the third lap with Pete having rolled into the chicane gravel trap. Thankfully, he was unhurt. His car did not suffer much damage and he was assisted by other competitors to make it watertight for the journey home on an open trailer. Such was the commitment of all, that this work left the car in race –ready condition. Pete completed race two – hopefully the earlier drama will not put him off returning.

Shonny Paterson brought his TR7V8 to Knockhill for the first time in many years.
His first time on the reverse direction circuit ended in third place in race one. Unfortunately, mechanical problems ended his second race prematurely.

Another returnee was Alex Montgomery, driving Alastair Baptie’s Fiat X1/9.

Race one victor was Alastair Baptie, MGBV8, followed by John Kinmond Rover SD1V8,
Paterson third. Top two were identically placed in race two, third place going to Bruce Mitchell in a Lotus Europa.

Final event is at Knockhill on 6th October.

Bruce Mitchell is the 2019 champion. The Lotus Europa driver, from Mintlaw, Aberdeenshire, completed every race this season and is a popular winner amongst drivers and spectators.

Mario Ferrari, Bruce’s friend and neighbour, was second overall in an Alfasud Sprint. Third place went to Michael Longstaffe who drove an MG Midget.

At the final meeting, held in damp to very wet conditions, John Kinmond, Rover SD1, won the first race from Mitchell, with Alasdair Coates’ Escort RS 2000 third.
The second race victor was Alastair Baptie, MGBV8,followed by Kinmond and Coates.

Several drivers joined the XR2 category in tribute to their late friend and XR2 champion, Martin Ramsay.

Glad to see Alasdair got his RS2000 sorted quickly after Brands, might take us a bit longer

My eventful weekend has not put me off returning but it won't be with the circuit being run in reverse. I'd prefer the rain and it running in the usual direction to that. Also need to return and thank all those who helped me out.
