2019 Formula Classic – Round 2Collie Icebreaker – 30th / 31st March
The second round of the 2019 Formula Classic season was dominated by the Formula Ford 2000 cars taking out the top three spots in the Collie Icebreaker event. However, it wasn’t all their own way to start with Michael Henderson dominating the first two races on Saturday in his Ralt RT4 until a gearbox failure on Sunday took him out of the running.
Twelve cars entered the event but sadly only 9 cars took the start after early failures in qualifying for Marty Bullock’s Chevron, Ricky Virago’s Ralt and Lance Carwardine’s OMS.
It was good to see the return of the Dave Watkins to the Formula Classic ranks reunited with his beautifully presented Royale RP31M and Colin McKee in his Reynard FF2000. Both drivers and cars performed well finishing 4th and 3rd respectively in the outright weekend results.
Outright results for the weekend were;
1st Simon Alderson 90 pts
2nd Craig Thompson 76 pts
3rd Colin McKee 70 pts
Handicap results for the weekend were;
1st David Watkins
2nd Glenn Swarbrick & Simon Alderson

The next round is at Barbagallo on Saturday 13th April, let’s see if we can put out another large group of cars to support this event and the WASCC.
