Graeme Dodd and Simon Garrad concluded the 2002 Historic Racing Saloon Championship in the style that has typified the season. After another glorious contest, just seven hundredths of a second split the friends and rivals as they raced to the line.
Dodd’s Jaguar MkII got the verdict from Garrad’s BMW 2000Tii, but it was the three-wheeling Hillman Imp of Adrian Oliver that stole the championship crown.
The spirited challenge of Miles Townshend in his Mustang was dashed by overexuberance at Becketts on a track ever more slippery due to spilt fuel.
Edwin Jowsey once again showed his pace by dominating the Classic Racing Car contest in his father’s Brabham BT28, while another young winner was rising star Oliver Smith in only his second race in Historic Formula Fords.
Nick Crossley (March 73A) and Kelvin New (Elva Mk7S) were the other winners as the HSCC’s season drew to a close.
