HSCC, Croix-en-Ternois

Although some thin entries affected the programme, the HSCC’s return to the Croix-en-Ternois circuit in Northern France proved popular with those who did make the trip, and few victors were more elated than Jonathan Gomm who claimed Historic Racing Saloon spoils.

Having started the month with a second place to Les Ely’s BMW at Snetterton, Gomm went one better at the twisty French track to scoop his first overall win with his Lotus Cortina.

Nelson Rowe took another Historic Formula Ford 1600 double, winning over regular rival Neil Fowler, while David Randall’s Ginetta G4 topped a combined Historic and 70s Roadsports race. Ian Gray’s Brabham BT30 dominated the Classic Racing Car rounds.
