Heritage GT Car Challenge Snetterton

August 12/13

Before the opening race of the weekend at Snetterton, Chris Scragg pointed out the fact that a race win still eluded him in the Heritage GT series. A couple of hours later his wish came true as he guided his Aston Martin V8 to victory in horrible conditions.

Partnered by John BusseII for the first time, he took the V8 to the flag on a wet track and under darkening skies. An early halt due to a beached Mustang played into their hands while they were being hunted down by the DB4 of young Charlie Kemp.

In the dry the following day, Roy McCarthy and his son Spencer drove a great race to keep their MGB GTV8 ahead of all the American muscle cars, although the Chevrolet Camaro of Arthur Thurtle and his son Boysie was leading when its engine blew. Scragg and Busse11 took second behind the flying McCarthys.
