Spring Autosolo - 10th April 2016
A record entry of 48 took on 4 different tests this weekend of the 10th. April.
A tumultuous effort by such a few members to put on such a good days sport, goes to show just how good Bath Motor Club members are.
My thanks to Pete Elkins, The man from Merlin, Sean O’Reilly, Vic Wright, Geoff Sutton, Graham Williamson (from Devizes and District Motor Club) and Dick Pease (Results).
But I have to say the biggest thanks must go to Cathy, Nick, and Graham who tirelessly clicked away on the stopwatches all day without a relief all day except between runs.
A fabulous tussle between Alex Millard and Dave Greenslade, he of Evo 4. (Our usual FTD man)
Test A saw Alex 5 secs faster than Dave, the next two test were down to Dave. The final seeing Dave take it by.3 of a sec. amazing skill. Our own Ben Griffin had a magnificent drive in the little Peugeot 106 taking the class.
Also worth a mention was Steve Connor taking 3rd. in class 4c. Steve adapting to rear wheel drive, for the first time like a duck to water. And our own John Earl who handled the 3.5 litre Quattro ably, but found the understeering beast a lot to handle.
All in all a good day.
Next Meeting at Kemble will be on August 21st. Keep this date free. No Excuses, We have been asked to run an Inter Association Challenge Event, and would dearly love you all to be there. That’s a challenge in itself.
Keep it on the black stuff.
