Harewood Double Header
BARC Yorkshire Centre ran their early August double header Speed Championship meeting at the weekend. Saturday's event was washed out during the afternoon timed runs when rain swept the venue. Some drivers chose not to take their second run while others braved the conditions.
Most of the classes ran before the rain shower, it was the unlucky single seater drivers who caught the rain: share drivers fared better having dry runs. Fastest time of day went to John Chacksfield on his first and only timed run in his supercharged OMS 28 with a best time of 57.84s. Paul Martin (OMS 2000M) led home the 1600cc racers with his best time 59.99s
Sunday brought sunshine and dry conditions all day. Last years' hot shot John Munro who has been circuit racing for the first part of this season, took a convincing class win in the 1100cc OMS 2000M he shares with his father Roy. John's best run was 54.65s. Steve Owen couldn't match John's pace with the OMS 28 BMW and settled for second with his best time of 55.81s. Roy Munro finished fourth in class and Richard Vaughan fifth with his OMS PR. Paul Martin again won the 1600cc racing car class on 55 seconds dead.
A delighted John Chacksfield finally broke the 54 second barrier. His best timed run of 53.86 seconds not only won his class but also gave him FTD for the second day in a row.
