Huge congratulations to Dick Coffey on winning the HRS Championship this year with 8 class wins out of nine races. Naturally I have to ask Dick, “what on earth went wrong at Silverstone?” Brilliant performance and well done!
Editor’s Note: Actually, Dick won Class E at Silverstone too, he was the only Class E entry!

The annual Gold Cup meeting is the biggest historic racing festival in the north of the country and this year's event had added significance as it marks 60 years since the circuit opened in August 1953. The high-profile race programme features grids that reflect the first 50 years of the Oulton Park story, ranging from the 500cc Formula 3 cars of the early 1950s through to the Super Touring cars of the 1990s.

Croft
The annual Croft Nostalgia weekend is a real favourite of mine, there is a special atmosphere to the place. I think it is partly due to the amazing efforts that are put together by so many people; the military vehicles, the air displays, the evening entertainment with live music and the classic car clubs all add to the event. This year we had a combined grid with the 70's RoadSports Championship to create a huge 36 car grid to guarantee close racing for all.
Qualifying saw HRS take overall honours with John Davison taking pole position over James Dean in his Lotus Europa and Peter Shaw taking P3. The race start however was rather different as John Davison had broken his gearbox in his élan, which put him out for the weekend. Peter Shaw had a broken clutch fork, which Ian Daniels managed to repair for the second race, but there simply was not time to get the car ready for race one. So the inherited HRS qualifying became Kevin "Keki" Kivlochan on pole with David Bowland in his G4 in P2 and Simon Haughton in third place. David Bowland made a superb start to take P3 overall, leaping ahead of the Morgan, he kept Keki at bay for a few laps, but once passed the Morgan of Kivlochan was secure in his first of two HRS wins of the weekend, with Jim Grant taking P3 in his Élan. Class E honours went to Dick Coffey in his Turner maintaining his dominance over the class and Championship this year.

Brands Hatch

A super 26 car grid at the legends of Brands Hatch weekend, showed off the HRS in a great light.
John Davison took pole in his Elan S3 ahead of an impressive run by Ian Burford in his Ginetta G4, closely followed by Frazer Gibney only 0.168 behind in his Elan. So Lotus and Ginetta occupied the top 5 slots with Richard Plant taking 6th in qualifying in his Morgan. Ahead in class E was Shaun Haddrell in his Turner MK1 and class B “pole” was James Owen in his TR5.
Peter Shaw who qualified in P4 improved his Elan into a final position of P2, some ten seconds behind our winner, John Davison, with Ian Burford taking the last podium slot.
Our top five places were all held by class C cars with P6 going to Kevin Kivlochan in his Morgan.
Dick Coffey triumphed in class E in P8 overall, some four seconds ahead of Shaun in a similar car.
Class B was won by James Owen and Class D was won by Nik Spencer in his MGB.

Cadwell

Qualifying
A damp and cold first qualifying made for some hairy moments through Hall Bends and the Hairpin with Barn in particular proving very twitchy leading onto the start/finish straight.
Peter Shaw continued his domination of 2016 with a convincing pole position, some 2.7 seconds ahead of P2, Kevin Kivlochan in his Morgan, Bob Rowe a close third. Dick Coffey qualified an impressive 5th just behind Jonathan Stringer in his Lotus Seven.

Race 1
Whilst cold and cloudy, it remained dry for our race. All got away cleanly but sadly it was red flagged when Jonathan Stringer spun his Lotus Seven at the Gooseneck and despite his best efforts, Patrick in the ex-Roger Waite élan had nowhere to go.

  Silverstone – the home of British motor sport and of course the current home of the British GP. The best prepared track in the UK with the safest run off. A track length of 3.6miles. Another exposed former airfield which on a cool day is bitter cold. On a wet day it is very hard going. But this is mid-May and the start of the British summer – we have much to look forward to!

What an amazing grid and thanks to all for your continued support. Peter Shaw won an exciting and narrow victory by 0.263 of a second, giving him his second win of the season. Robin Pearce once again took the third podium slot in his Morgan winning class A. Nik Spencer took class D honours in his MGB, a mere 3.006 seconds ahead of our 2014 Champion, John Shaw in his 911. Class B saw a convincing win from James Owen in his TR5. Dick Coffey was the only class E runner…c’mon class E, we need your support!!

At the time of writing, the grids for Cadwell are disappointingly low; I would urge anyone who is contemplating Cadwell to put in a last minute entry, as it is a wonderful circuit and a great weekend.

It was great to see everyone again after the winter break and super to see some new faces too.

Our first successful race at Castle Combe. We were exceptionally lucky with the weather and had a wonderful day out. Unfortunately, 70s Roadsports had to cope with snow the day before…..Shame !!!!!!!
Our grid had a total of 27 cars. It was a clean race. Peter Shaw had a dominating and convincing victory in his mighty white Elan, while the Morgans’ of Pearce and Plant had a good tussle on the last lap, with Pearce holding Plant off for a Class victory.
Patrick Ward-Booth made a debut in his Lotus Elan that he recently acquired from Roger Waite and came a respectable 6th, while Ian Burford was out in the ex-Justin Murphy Ginetta.
Roger Lee raced his pastel blue Ginetta for the first time out.
