2020 Formula Classic Round 6
2020 Formula Classis – Round 6
WASCC October Race Meeting – 1st November
A good grid of 14 cars was entered for round 6 of the 2020 Formula Classic season. Unfortunately the weather was wet, wet, wet and this didn’t change all day.
Stuart Kostera Jnr made a guest appearance driving Rob Jordan’s Ralt RT4, hopefully he’ll be a regular driver in the future with Formula Classic.
With the event declared a ‘wet’ meeting and treaded tyres only permitted on the track this precluded several competitors from venturing out of their garage, namely Marty Bullock, Allan Ould and Harvey Leys.
Qualifying took it’s tole on Dave Turner on lap one with a spin into the wall at the Esses. Dave was driving Rob Jordan’s Lola Sports 2000 rather than his usual Ralt RT4.
Race 1 saw Andrew Nielson, in his newly acquired Loynings powered Ralt RT4, take the win from Simon Alderson with Stuart Kostera running third.
Race 2 yielded the same result as Race 1 but in Race 3 Andrew Neilson unfortunately broke a drive shaft at the start of the event that side lined him from the race.
Ricky Virago in his beautifully prepared Ralt RT5 was rewarded for his consistency with an overall 3rd place for the meeting.
Outright results for the weekend were;
1st Simon Alderson 65 pts
2nd Stuart Kostera Jnr 56 pts
3rd Ricky Virago 52 pts
Handicap results for the weekend;
1st Ricky Virago 22 pts
2nd Neil Woodward 20 pts
3rd Robert Creasy 8 pts
The final round is at Barbagallo on Saturday 14th November.
