Rory Farrell Jnr took a fine win in the opening URS Classic Formula Ford 1600 race in his Crosslé 45F. He qualified fifth, but a demon start from the Northern Irishman put him into contention, and once he picked off poleman Oliver Robinson (Van Diemen RF81) he was unstoppable. Robinson faded to third mid-race, once Steve Hare’s similar Van Diemen had powered past.
Mark Grant took a dominant win in the FF2000 race after getting the jump on polesitter James Ruskin. Ruskin shadowed Grant throughout but was never close enough to mount a proper challenge.
