HSCC, Thruxton

John Cleland wins a touring car race in a Vauxhall Vectra. Tiff Needell scores a dramatic Formula Ford victory in a Lotus 69… the very same chassis in which he notched up his first such success, and at the very same circuit, 42 years beforehand.

Nevertheless, some excellent racing cut through the gloom, notably in the '70s Road Sports Championship. With the title assured after Jai Sharma's Lancia Fulvia consumed its...

Historic Sports Car Club Castle Coombe

As an aside he mentioned that the Ralt RT3-Toyota that Tiga ran for Italian Daniele Albertin in the British series...
