Nottingham Sports Car Club‘s Curborough weekend began on a slightly overcast morning with touches of drizzle, but soon settled into a warm and sunny day.
A ‘compact’ field meant lots of runs were on offer, with some competitors taking six runs and getting great value for money. Good job NSCC!
Class SA – Standard Saloons and Sports cars up to 1400cc began proceedings, with Andrew Rollason‘s Ford Ka taking the class win on 43.08 seconds, just edging out his competition by eleven-hundredths of a second.
In Class SB – Standard Saloons and Sports cars over 1400cc up to 2000cc, Emma Hunt’s Golf was on its Jack Jones with, Emma focusing on getting under forty seconds. Unfortunately, she didn’t quite manage it, with a best time of 40.54 seconds taking the class win.
Class 1B – Road Modified Saloons and Sports Cars over 1400cc up to 2000cc, saw Wynn Morgan unfortunately retiring the Williams Renault Clio with suspected valve damage. Wynn’s gearbox had been baulking and the resultant missed shift causing an over rev. Watch this space for the replacement Clio’s details!
In Class 1C – Road Modified Saloons and Sports Cars over 2000cc, James Hunt had the BMW E30 going more to his liking and was a close second in class on 36.21 seconds , just three-tenths away from the win.
Class 2A – Road Modified Kit up to 1700cc , was headed by a very modified car, but Graham Holdstock held on for a good forth place on 37.31 seconds, just one second off second place.
In Class 2E – Road-going Lotus Elise and Elise derived cars, Elen Worthington once again held sway, her 36.02 seconds well out of reach to win the class.
Class 4A – Sports Libre up to 1700cc had a riot of Radicals – PR6, Clubsport and SR4 all present, the latter in the hands of Clive Wooster who took the class on 30.85 seconds.
Finally, Phil Williams in the Jedi MK4 (Class 5A – Racing Cars up to 1100cc) took great chunks off his PB to record a fine 34.53 seconds and forth in class. Apparently Phil thought his class bogey was much lower, so was delighted when he realised he’d made significant progress!
