Oulton Park Gold Cup

The rain failed to drown the great atmosphere at one of the seasons best events. With four cars to run in two different races we had plenty of work to do. Ian Burford and Larry Tucker were racing a Lenham Midget and Ashley Midget respectively in the Historic Road Sports. Despite a wet qualifying both drivers competed well with Ian securing 1st in his class. Dave Griffiths and our own Shaun Rainford were competing in the Historic Touring Car race. Dave in his venerable Standard Vanguard and Shaun in the irrepressible Volvo Amazon. Both enjoyed the competition greatly giving the Cortina’s and Alfa Romeo’s a run for their money. Dave finished a very respectable 3rd in his class. I think we will definitely be returning next year.
