Well done to all of the class winners.
Thomas & Rose dominate Anglesey
Both Oliver Thomas and Paul Rose took triple victories in the split grid races on Anglesey at the beginning of the month. Other class winners over the weekend of decidedly mixed weather, sun and torrential rain, were, Garry Watson, Luke Armiger, Joe Spencer, Steven Parker, Piers Grange, Richard Roundell, Iain Gorrie and Clive Dix. Joe Spencer took over the overall championship points lead.
Nicholas Bartlett wins Cam Forbes Trophy
At the recent Anglesey meeting Nicholas Bartlett was awarded the Cam Forbes Trophy for advancing the most from practice in the first two rounds. Dawn Forbes was present to make the presentation.
A double for Paul Rose in Donington
Paul Rose returned to the championship after missing the last Oulton Round with an emphatic double win in Donington Park. In both races he was slow off the line but within a few laps had regained the lead. Garry Watson would have given him a good run for his money but in the first race spun into the gravel on the first lap. Again there was an over subscribed grid, however with a few pull outs and mechanical gremlins all that turned up got two races.
Dave Harvey takes prestigious Dave Simpson Trophy
At Oulton Park in July the magnificent and prestigious Dave Simpson Memorial trophy was won by Class C driver Dave Harvey. This trophy is awarded to the driver that wins their class by the greatest speed differential. This year the trophy was taken by Dave Harvey in his Stuart Taylor Locosaki.
The Garry's take over Oulton
With the entry exceeding 50 for the meeting the entry was split into two races, one for modified cars and one for specials. Obviously Garry is the name to have as in the first race Garry Wardle came home ahead of Ilsa Cox with other class winners Robert Burkenshaw and Iain Gorrie. In the specials race Garry Watson led home David Harvey and Ric Wood.
Scott Guthrie takes Mintex Award at Latest Oulton
Scott Guthrie in his Crossle 25F Classic FF1600 car took the Mintex award at the Oulton meeting on the 7th July. This award is presented to the driver who, in the opinion of the marshals drove most spectacularly in the qualifying sessions for the race meeting. Here Scott is seen receiving the award of a set of racing brake pads from new driver's representative Graham Saul.
Spencer wins twice in Cadwell Park
Joe Spencer continued his march to the title with two wins in Cadwell Park. There was again a capacity grid which resulted in some frenetic racing at this picturesque circuit. The class wins were shared between several drivers and all got back safely. See the attached report from Peter Scherer.
Rose takes two and Spencer one at first Anglesey Triple Header
Three totally full grids of 42 cars provided fantastic entertainment on Anglesey for rounds 2, 3 & 4. The CNC Heads entry was as large as at the season opener at Oulton and the fans were provided with just about everything they could want from a race! Paul Rose won two of the races though on the third he only managed the first corner before a driveshaft broke. This race was won by the ever fast Joe Spencer in his Locosaki.
CNC Heads Triple Header on Anglesey this weekend
This coming weekend, 21st/22nd April sees the first Triple Header in the CNC Heads Championship. A massive entry of almost 50 drivers sees the races moved to the International circuit to accommodate as many as possible. All the top runners are entered along with several regulars out for the first time this season.
Ilsa Cox wins Mintex Award at Oulton Park
The Mintex Award, that is presented to the driver who drives most impressively during qualification for any of the day's races, was won at our first race meeting of the year by Ilsa Cox. Ilsa has been a regular driver for many years in the Championship. Unfortunately her excellent performance (on the wrong tyres) in qualifying was not matched in the race when she retired with loss of performance.
Wardle & Rose take Race wins at Opening Round
Paul Rose and Garry Wardle took respective wins in the split Special and Modified races at the opening Oulton Park race meeting. In atrocious conditions all drivers got back successfully after their races. Other classes were won by Roddie Paterson, Joe Spencer, Steven Hibbert and Simon Sheriden.
