Yet another driver recorded a victory in the HSCC’s Historic Racing Saloon Register Championship as the remarkably open season continued at Castle Combe.
This time it was Ford Anglia pilot Bob Bullen who took the spoils from a packed grid, but it was a close-run contest: Roger Cope had his best result to date in his BMW 1800 to finish half a second adrift in second.
Even local knowledge couldn’t keep Nelson Rowe ahead of Neil Charlie Wooding Fowler in yet another mighty Historic FF1600 contest. It was as close as ever between the two grandees of the category, but Fowler’s Lola T200 finally got the better of Rowe’s Crosslé 20E
Another local racer blitzed the Classic Racing Car race — Matthew Watts won at a canter in his ex-John Watson Brabham BT16. Richard Trott and his Chevron B43 just failed to overcome a 10-second false start penalty in Classic F3, leaving victory to Keith White’s Ralt RT1.
