Sports/Saloon Car Championship – Anglesey preview
The CNC Heads Sports Saloons make the first of two visits to Anglesey this weekend, for another triple header.
Half of the 30 car entry are contesting Class E, where Jamie Cryer’s Ginetta G20 will be looking to get back to the fore after a luckless Cadwell. Rob Burkinshaw’s Honda Integra will be looking to be on the class podium too however, but has a number of other Honda rivals vyeing for success. Civic Type R’s are out for Les Kirk, Ian Bruce, Gareth Pilling and Graham Saul, while Chris Maries has his Integra.
Nick Bartlett’s BMW M3 has now become a regular class frontrunner, but with Steven Parker’s BMW Compact on the pace, it could be a close race. Neal O’Leary debuted at Cadwell and is back with his Ginetta G20, along with Tony Harman’s similar car. There are Renault Clio’s for Rob Phillips and Angus Eddowes, along with Brian Allen’s Ford Puma, David Jones’ Ford Focus and Peter Koukoulas’ Toyota MR2.
In class A John Murphy’s Honda engine Locost is the only starter, while Andrew Southcott’s MG Modsport will be looking for a repeat of the Cadwell victories from Class C. Paul Dobson’s Locost Mazda will be one of Southcott’s main rivals overall and in class, while the Escorts of Colin Robinson and Tim Foxlow are both due out too.
Danny Bird’s Spire GTR and Dave Harvey’s Stuart Taylor Locosaki will also be looking for outright success too, while their only challenger in class C is Graeme Smith’ Caterham Classic. Garry Wardle has hopefully solved the gremlins with his Mini Cooper S and is joined by the returning Subaru Impreza of Oliver Thomas in class D.
In class F Barry Long debuts his Mini Cooper, alongside the Honda Civics’ of David Green and David Bird, Guy Carter’s Honda CRX and Paul Griffin’s Ford Fiesta.
Qualifying is at 10.50 on Saturday morning, with races at 13.50 and 16.45, before the third race on Sunday morning at 9.50, all of 20 minutes plus one lap duration.
