Sun, scudding clouds, drizzle, brief rain showers – this course at Broad Chalke in Wiltshire’s glorious downlands had a bit of everything on Saturday 16th June. Nine BARC Speed Championship competitors were running, so lets see how they fared.
Classes at this South West venue vary a little and it was class 4a – Road Going Series Production Cars up to 1400cc that featured Andrew Till in the MGZR105. Andrew took second place on a best of 43.82 seconds.
In Class 4c – Road Going Series Production Cars Over 2000cc, James Hunt‘s BMW was running well and James recorded a best of 38.21 seconds for sixth place. Its asking a lot for a standard Golf to run in this class, but Emma Hunt hit a best of 44.27 seconds for ninth spot.
Elen Worthington‘s first time at Gurston saw a considered start, but then times were tumbling. A certain old hand at Gurston predicted a sub 38.00 seconds time and so it was when Elen in the Lotus Elise S1 finished on 37.65 seconds for the class win.
