Easter Historics – Mallala

Three club members competed at Mallalla at the Easter Historics meeting.

Rod Carey –AMI Spitfire in Group S

Andy Ansell –TR7

Neil Martin TR7 V8 Both in Regularity.

Saturday.

Everyone had practice in the morning and two events in the afternoon. Rod’s first race resulted in a very noisy diff and decided that he would fit a replacement. So he raced home to collect all the bits needed to do the job while Andy and I did our Regularity events. Andy placed 4th and 3rd while I managed 13th and 1st. this left Andy on 2nd overall for the day and me 3rd. Rod turned up with his diff so we all helped fit it during the afternoon with the car mobile again by dark.

Sunday.

Three events were on the programme for the day. Rod completed his first race without problem and with a lap time two tenths outside his old lap record. During his second race, he bettered his record so was very pleased with himself and the car with its new diff. Andy struggled with the traffic in his first event to get eleventh. His second result was 5th but Chocwedge was overheating due to a faulty radiator fan so missed the last event. I had more luck with the track traffic and my car had got rid of the gremlins from last year so went well. I placed 3rd, 2nd and 3rd resulting in 1st place for the weekend!

The weekend was a success and I enjoyed the competition and the company.

Neil Martin
