2020 Formula Classic Round 1

2020 Formula Classis – Round 1

WASCC Birthday Meeting – 29th  Feb/ 1st March

The first round of the 2020 Formula Classic season kicked off with a 16-car entry list.  It was encouraging to see a few new cars on the grid along with the usual mainstay of the group and few contemporary Formula Fords joining us as there was no class for them at this meeting.

Sadly, we lost Lance Carwardine’s OMS SF/2A on the first lap of the first race with suspension failure. There were also one or two other cars that missed out on a couple of the races due to minor technical issues.

With the absence of last season’s dominant Ralt RT4 driven by Michael Henderson, the 51st Birthday Meeting’s four race Formula Classic programme took on a different complexion with David Turner, Marty Bullock and Simon Alderson all fighting closely for the top honours.

Harvey Leys, in his beautifully prepared Chevron sports car, was a consistent 4th place runner as was Craig Thompson’s 5th place in his Van Diemen FF2000.

Outright results for the weekend were;

1st           David Turner                                      100 pts

2nd          Marty Bullock                                    78 pts

3rd           Simon Alderson                                74 pts


During the off-season Kevin Taylor undertook a further revision of the handicapping system to allow the results to be processed quickly on the day, below are the handicap results for this round;

1st           David Watkins                                   24 pts

2nd          Marty Bullock                                    23 pts

3rd           Paul Barron                                         18 pts

The next round is the Collie Icebreaker over the weekend of 14th / 15th March. Let’s see if we can put out a large group of cars to support this event and the Collie club.
