The 530 ius is an extension from 528 i from if my memory serves. I remember reading that TW built only one 530 originally a LHD road going car. It has been extensively raced after in french Production and enter four times in 24 Hours of Spa but in RHD form. Jean Pierre Malcher pedaled it more than once with success.

John Cleland never felt he properly won the title in 89 due to the class system, as he didn’t feel right winning the title when his best result was 9th

Funnily enough I quite enjoyed the class based Championships. I never had a problem following battles between class competitors and, as proven by the 1977 race, lapping slower cars could throw another variable into the equation. With the BOP obsessed series we have these days, it is an art which has largely died out.

Apart from the fact that the overall champion often finished down the field in the individual races, the other problem with class based championships is one model often ended up dominant in each class. By 1965 the BSCC ended up with Mustangs dominating the top class, Lotus Cortinas the 2 litre class and Minis the smallest classes. At the end of the multi class BSCC in 1989 Sierras ruled the top class, BMW M3s and Toyota Corollas classes B & D with only class C featuring any variety with Astras taking on VW Golfs. The single class BTCC brought in not only (arguably) closer racing but also greater variety.

The other problem was that those classes with low numbers would in theory have an advantage, although they did try to get around by awarding less points if a class was below a certain number

Nothing wrong with that, it was to encourage smaller capacity vehicles, the kind that most folks could afford at the time.

Unett's 1300 Avenger was however something special, did Weslake develop the engines?
