Apparently there's a new winner now with the Chevron excluded.

Unless I've missed something I think it was wearing the reg of a 1974 BMW 2002 in orange

Pretty embarrassing all round.....

Ooh blimey, that's going to cause a stink! The results are still provisional for another week, so it could all change back again. No explanation came with the results...

All sounds a bit bizarre- hope it doesn’t ‘taint’ the event....

That's only my best guess on why it was excluded - a Chevron B8 as late as1974? and a look at Cazana with GJU969N says BMW 2002.

Dropping the road requirement changed the event - I don't enter these days

A few more DSQ's and you might end up as winner after all Boggie.

Hang on that would mean I'd be out, and I don't want that!

I've gone from 12th to 11th but the husband has gone from 19th to 14th...

So who won it?
The B8 is s bitza so reg irrelevant
It’s a 1967/8 car and Alex did well getting it together
VSCC decisions are sometimes hard to understand?

I too enjoyed the Pom, a (very) good friend asked me to drive his 1933 Riley Grebe, never driven anything like it before and my only pre-event practice as a few hot laps of Clapham Common and the Wandsworth one way!!

With no space for the regulation suitcases and no roof + not pushing it at all in the morning tests there was no way I was aiming for a result. Really enjoyed the afternoon laps, easily achieved the target set and by the end got past a number of cars that had flown past me on the 1st lap.

Great event.

Best regards

Kevin Cooke

Agreed. The results went final on 12 March, but AFAIK they weren't distributed or announced as such, which is odd. I certainly didn't receive them until I emailed to ask whether they were final yet.

Winner was Simon Diffey in the Mk2 Escort RS2000 (rally car), followed by PBE in the Frazer Nash Owlet and Martin Hunt in a FN/BMW 328.

Still no explanation of why Alex Ames was excluded.
