Does this count as two events?

Two courses, two practice on each and two timed on each?

No.

The times are added together for each layout but you get lots of runs during the day :)

Really enjoyed this event, for those unaware it’s two separate tracks. Track A and track B. There are two paddocks too. Paddock A runs track A in the morning then track B after lunch and Paddock B runs track B in the morning.

So 2 practice and 2 times runs on each track. 8 runs in total plus two convoy runs. Really was lots of fun, track A has hints of Mira to me. Track B more like the original Debden/North Weald.


A full Classic Marques entry including Nick Hall in his MR2.


The overall result is made up of both tracks PB.

Me and the Ol’man were the only two Scims out today.

Dad in the Cossie Coupe and me in Jex (Skyline GTE)


Richard Carter: Track A, 54.68. Track B, 60.42.

James Carter: Track A, 54.13. Track B, 57.32.


I had to limp her on my last runs as the signs of a head gasket failure seemed imminate.. I now have a 5 cylinder GTE. :roll: :w Was good be out in the old girl again!! 8)

Very well run , and a good atmosphere. Nice crowd in Classic Marques again.

Interesting to see supercharged MX5's go so well. Remind me of my old SS1 turbo, but with better brakes and traction!

Well, James, hate to add insult to injury.

I've used the Classic Marques method and aggregated the times. (Added to me and you)

And the winner is ...

Richard 25 points
James 24.68 points
