There was another inter-Christmas and New Year event back on in 2021 as we attended the Plum Pudding Historic Sporting Trial, near Buriton, Hampshire. The entry had been reduced somewhat but a total of 42 crews tackled the 6 hills, being run 3 times. As usual there were two classes and Simon Kingsley took the historic section whilst Ian Wright took the historic class. Another good day out and it was great to get back to some end of year sporting normality. Read More »

Back to Long Compton for the Mercian Sporting Trial and it was victory for Thomas Bricknell & Dave Kimberley (Crossle). They set the standard in the 1st round of hills scoring only 9 points, leading from Josh & Tristan Veala (Sherpa) by just 3 points. They extended that lead on the 2nd pass, before lunch, with the final run seeing them take victory by 5 points from the Veale’s. Mike Salton & Martin Wilson (Hamilton) set the lowest score of the whole event with a 5 on the final loop of hills, which was enough to secure 3rd overall. Read More »

In a break from the norm we went full spectator mode as we attended, for the first time, the Ferrari Racing Days at Silverstone. There was a mixture of action on track but it was more than just that with track sessions for Ferrari owners and sales opportunities for new models. Combined with displays of past competition cars it was a weekend devoted to the prancing horse. Read More »

It was a welcome return to Plashes Farm for the 2021 running of the HSCC trial, on Frank Lyons farm. As always a bumper entry was present which had the knock on effect of taking its time for the crews to complete the hills, spread across the estate. Only two runs were able to completed thanks to this but the action was still good and it was great to be out trialing once again. Read More »

In race one 2 Seas Motorsport’s Jack Mitchell and Jordan Witt became the seventh different winners in as many Intelligent Money British GT3 races this season at soggy Snetterton this morning, while TF Sport’s Jamie Caroline and Dan Vaughan now lead the GT4 championship on their own after scoring a first class win of the year. A race that began behind the Safety Car also witnessed a remarkable stint from Sandy Mitchell who took second from Optimum’s McLaren – shared by Ollie Wilkinson and Lewis Proctor – on the line.

Sam De Haan and Patrick Kujala recovered from a spin on the opening lap to claim RAM Racing’s first Intelligent Money British GT Championship victory of the season at Donington Park earlier today. Meanwhile, HHC Motorsport duo Jordan Collard and Patrik Matthiesen got their GT4 title bid back on track with a composed GT4 win. Barwell’s brave strategic call helped Adam Balon and Phil Keen finish second overall and ahead of Jenson Team Rocket RJN’s James Baldwin and Michael O’Brien on a day when erstwhile GT3 championship leaders Sandy Mitchell and Rob Collard were compromised by a slow puncture and 20s Success Penalty.

Another weekend out in Cheshire and this time it was for the Tour of Cheshire where just under 80 crews took the startline. There were a range of tests and we caught them at Oulton Park in the morning and afternoon with a trip to Booth Park sandwiched in between. Nick Bloxham & Niall Frost (Escort MkI Mexico) had been due to start at no.7 but brake problems saw them start as car no.77, following agreement from the other crews. They then stormed through and took the win in dominant fashion. Read More »

Despite the recent constant rainfall the well drained soil meant the hills used on the Geoff Taylor were not as bad as they could have been and it was Josh & Tristan Veale (Sherpa) who led Richard & Joe Sharp (Cartwright) by a single point, after round 1. Ian & Sandy Veale (Sherpa) set the lowest score of round 2 to make it a three way tie on 10 points with one round to go. Josh had a poor 3rd round dropping to 4th overall and it his father Ian who set the joint lowest score with the Sharp’s, taking victory on countback. Completing the podium in 3rd were John Fack & Paul Leyser (MSR). Read More »

Once again the show took place over 3 days with the Friday being our main day at the show and Saturday dedicated to the live rally stage.

Silverstone Auctions were present too with the auction spread out across two days this year. Read More »
