A clean sweep of the last five races earned Bob Berridge the third FIA Cup Thoroughbred Grand Prix title in his ex-Eliseo Salazar/Kenneth Acheson RAM-Cosworth 01-3.
Watched by three-time world champion Jackie Stewart, Berridge dominated the finale at Brands Hatch on October 19 once he found a way past the fast-starting John Wilson’s Williams FW08. Steve Hitchins’ Lotus 78 subsequently took second.
‘I’m proud to have won this prestigious and fast-growing series,’ said Berridge, who will race the ex-Keke Rosberg 1982 Swiss GP-winning Williams FW08B next season.
Former rallycrosser Trevor Reeves (Tyrrell 008) and outgoing champion Michael Schryver’s Lotus 72 won the other classes, the latter despite a pitstop to replace a punctured tyre.
