David Clark may have topped the Sebring Salute race at Brands Hatch two days earlier, but at Castle Combe on Easter Monday Shaun Lynn powered his GT40 to victory in conditions that suited the Ford rather better than those at Brands.
Lynn had to press all the way in the Cloth Cap race as Simon Hadfield was in hot pursuit, having taken over Clark’s Elva Mk8 mid-race.
Robert Hartley took his Ford Mustang to a debut win in the Top Hat race. By the close he had almost a minute in hand over the similar car of Jim Prentice, as Lynn guided his monstrous Ford Galaxie to third.
A splendid 40-car grid contested the Oldies but Goldies race, with victory going to Holly Mason and Charles Knill-Jones in their AC Ace. Best of the saloons was the Austin A35 of F1 racer Mike Wrigley.
