Lotus 27 driver Michael Hibberd won both legs of the opening round of the FIA Lurani Trophy series when Formula Junior topped the bill at Brands Hatch on Easter Saturday.
The first race was a cracker with Hibberd, Robert Goodwin and Marcus Mussa all having spells in front until Hibberd reasserted his authority. Conditions had deteriorated by the time the second leg was held, which ended with Hibberd just half a second up on the rare Caravelle of James Hicks. Early pacesetter Mussa fell to third.
The Top Hat Sebring Salute race promised rather more than it delivered, but that is not to take anything away from David Clark (Elva Mk 8) who won in some style. Charles Allison was second.
