It was a busy weekend with a mixed bag of results. The MG1100 qualified 10th for the TC63. Shaun got off to a cracking start and was soon up to 5th place and bothering the Jaguar mk2 of Peter Burton. However it wasn’t meant to be. The 28 degree heat and transverse mounted radiator failed to keep the little MG cool. It started spluttering on the straights and after Shaun tried to clear it he retired from the race. His fastest lap was a 1:39.781 which was more than we expected from the car. Sunday didn’t start too well either after an oil cooler hose blew on the Lenham during qualify. After only 1 flying lap Shaun still managed to qualify in 6th. A quick start from the Lenham put us up to 3rd place where we finished behind the Mini Jem of Rae Davis and the very quick Lotus Elite of Brain Arculus with a fastest lap of 135.259. Ian Burford did very well in his Lenham Le Mans finishing 7th over all with a time of 139.026. The 3rd Lenham of David Stubbings did not finish. 2 out of 3 is not bad considering not one of the 3 Ashley GT’s finished the race.
