Sixteen drivers contested rounds one and two of the 2014 championship at Knockhill on 6th April.
Damp qualifying conditions proved tricky for some competitors. These improved to almost dry for the first race, won by Tommy Gilmartin, with wet conditions returning for race two, won by John Marshall.

Class winners in both races were

A Steve Uphill
B Tim Reid
C John Marshall
D Raymond Boyd
E Tommy Gilmartin
G Harry Simpson

Several additions to the grid are expected for rounds three and four on May 4th at Knockhill.

Race report - 2nd meeting, 4th May

At Malcolm's request...

An unusual start as thick fog descended on Knockhill in the morning, visibility was so poor that "qualifying" consisted of 3 laps behind the safety car. Grid positions were determined by championship positions from Round 1 in April.

With John Marshall on holiday Ray Boyd (class D 911) and Harry Simpson (class G Ginetta) took the front row. The unusual circumstances saw me on row 3 with some very fast cars behind including former champion Stan Bernard whose class D 911 had missed round 1.

I can't comment much on the race goings on as I was locked in battle with Grant Allan's 911 (Youtube 'steve#61' https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC9y...9KdWzHA/videos)
After George Leitch scampered off in his class A fiesta.
Race 1 finishing order:
1st Ray Boyd (D)
2nd Tommy Gilmartin (E) +3.9s
3rd Stan Bernard (D) +10.4s

Harry Simpson was 4th winning class G, Jimmy Crow 5th (C), Jim Grant 8th (B) and George Leitch 10th (A).

Race 2
I got the better of Grant Allan's 911 off the start and tried in vain to catch George Leitch who took his second class A victory of the day. Further up the road, Gilmartin got the win this time leading Stan Bernard's 911 for most of the race until he dropped behind Ray Boyd's car at the last giving him the class win.
1st Tommy Gilmartin
2nd Ray Boyd +1.7s
3rd Stan Bernard +3.6s

Harry Simpson took 4th and class G, Jimmy Crow 6th (C), Jim Grant 8th (B) and George Leitch 10th (A)

Hopefully, Malcolm will return with his usual great pictures next week!

A healthy twenty-two car grid appeared at Knockhill on 15th June.
Returnees Andy Smith, Morgan +8, and Shonny Paterson, TR7 V8, proved that
a lengthy absence away from this championship is no barrier to success.
Paterson qualified first, over two seconds faster than anyone else in damp conditions.
Smith won both races and Paterson was third and second in races one and two respectively.
Reigning champion, Tommy Gilmartin, Morgan +8, was second in race one and third in race two.

Several class lap record times were set in race one, which had dry conditions. Smith was fastest of
all at 57.6 seconds. A great performance by Tim Reid, Marcos, in race two, gave him a new class
lap record of 61.5 seconds.

Six cars suffered mechanical difficulties by the end of race two, however, there was still great
entertainment, especially that provided by Harry Simpson, Ginetta G4, and Raymond Boyd,
Porsche 911, who were only 0.2 seconds apart at the end.
Similarly, our correspondent, Steve Uphill, Fiesta 1300, finishing one second ahead of Nic Boyes’ Mini.



Class winners in races one and two

A George Leitch Steve Uphill
B Tim Reid Tim Reid
C John Marshall Jimmy Crow
D Raymond Boyd Raymond Boyd
E Andy Smith Andy Smith

Pictures to follow.

Next event is at Knockhill on 13th July.

Malcolm,

I'm not blowing the proverbial but the image of Nic's Mini over the grid in the rain is one of the best images I have seen in a long time - stunning in terms of focus, lighting and mood - you caught a cracker!, wish it was of me!

Shonny Paterson, TR7V8, won both races at Knockhill on 13th July.
The first of these successes was particularly hard fought, as Harry Simpson , Ginetta G4 Twin Cam,
was less than half a second behind as the leading car passed the chequered flag.
Paterson's margin in race two was almost twelve seconds from the Porsche 911 of Raymond Boyd.

Other close action of note was the battle between Tim Reid, Marcos GT and Jimmy Crow, Escort RS2000,
with Reid ahead at the end of each race. Similarly, Grant Allan, Porsche 911 and Blair Nimmo, Ford Capri,
were closely matched - Porsche power in the ascendancy both times. Class A competitors, Steve Uphill, Fiesta 1300, and Ian Morton, MG Midget , 1300, provided great entertainment, especially in race two where
Steve crossed the line 0.4 seconds ahead of Ian.

A much higher rate of attrition than normal, due to mechanical woes, sidelined several competitors
in races one and two. At the end of race two only eleven of eighteen cars were running.
Hopefully, this will not be repeated at the next event in August.


Class winners in races one and two

B Tim Reid

D Raymond Boyd

Spectators and competitors enjoyed an excellent day's racing at Knockhill on 17th August.
Fastest in qualifying was Shonny Paterson (TR7V8) - an advantage which he converted to victory in race one.
Morgan +8 driver Tommy Gilmartin was second in race one and swapped places with Paterson in race two.

Raymond Boyd (Porsche 911) continued his 100% class winning record (Class D) and leads the championship from Steve Uphill and Harry Simpson.

Journalist Nigel Boothman drove Alex Montgomery's MGB V8 - part of his research for a forthcoming
magazine article on Scottish Classic Racing.

Next event is on 14th September.
