Event report

Friday qualifying, 30 mins. in dry conditions. 15 cars on the grid, well down on previous years.

Our two little Crosslé 9S cars were not daunted by the rapid and high quality machinery qualifying ahead of them - Chevron B19 with a fastest lap of 1:51.231 followed by another B19, McLaren M1B, Chevron B8, McLaren M1B, big engine Ford Capri, Chevron B16 and Lola T70 Mk11.

Steve Ough secured P9 with a time of 2:02.817 and John Taylor took P12 with 2:07.659. Both our boys were disappointed with their times, some 2 seconds down on last year.

Sunday race, 60 mins in dry conditions, following heavy showers.

The midfield action was fast and furious, with no incidents to report. Final result was P1 to the pole sitter Chevron B19 with fastest lap of 1:53.637, followed by McLaren M1B, Chevron B19, Chevron B8, McLaren M1B, Chevron B16. Steve Ough took P7 with best lap of 2:02.052, followed by a Lola T70MK11 with John Taylor in P9, best lap of 2:06.174.

A very creditable performance, well done.

I think the only time I raced a Crossle was at Mondello on Boxing Day 1969 - it was an elderly Junior converted to FF 1600 - can’t remen where I finished but didn’t spin although there was ice on the track - car belonged to Dave Bowles who kindly let me race it in return for £5 - my worldly wealth at that time ...
