Our 2nd year in a row at the HSCC Championship Finals saw the threat of rain and strong wins ready to influence the season finale. The showers were light but they did play their part with two memorable highlights from the day. The penultimate qualifying session for the Historic Touring Cars ended with drizzle and whilst many took to the pit lane with no chance of improving their times, a brave few stayed out and decided to make the most of the conditions. Watching a Sunbeam Imp and then Ford Anglia drifting round Luffield will stay in the memory for some time. The final race of the day was decided on tyre strategy and when that went wrong Frank Lyons took his pole sitting Gurney Eagle from 4thoverall, after two laps, in to the pits. He emerged a lap down but the remainder of the 20 minute race proved to be a master class as he unlapped himself and then set about catching the leaders again. It was tight and a last lap pass around the outside, at Luffield saw Lyons emerge victorious after a scintillating race. Read More »

Another deviation from our usual form of motorsport as we dived in to our 2nd ever HSCC Historic Sporting Trial, this time held at Plashes Farm, Hertfordshire. The atmosphere was excellent once again with all crews enjoying the days sport and sharing some friendly banter. Mark Howse (Facsimile) cleared all of the tests we witnessed with ease as did Steve Courts (Facsimile), showing his 51 years experience as a sporting trialist. Read More »

After the championship finals last year we took in the HSCC International Trophy, thankfully on the dry day of racing. The already packed schedule had been bolstered by an extra race from the Saturday and with the track dry, the drivers could unleash the full power of their historic cars. The schedule had a few stand out races with the Guards Trophy race as the centrepiece. Andrew Kirkaldy & Sandy Watson took their Chevron B8 to victory in that race and Kirkaldy took a solo win in the Pre ’80 Endurance race in Watson’s Chevron B19, another race to delight the senses.

hsccfinals16-26A change to our schedule saw us take in a trip to the National circuit, at Silverstone, for HSCC Championship Finals. The day started out wet and a downpour resulted in mayhem on the track with two accidents in the Formula 3 practice. It was the afternoon before racing resumed and a total of 13 races took place on a drying track which soon became totally dry. The highlight of the day for us were the Formula 5000 cars with their awesome V8 engines bellowing round for the Derek Bell Trophy. There was great action amongst the Historic Touring Cars too with the Minis holding the advantage in the slippery conditions before race two saw the big US saloons take control on a now dry track. A good day out with something a little different for us. Read More »
