2021 Formula Classic Round 2

2021 Formula Classic – Round 2
Wanneroo Night Masters – 27th March

The second round of the 2021 Formula Classic season was held at Wanneroo Raceway. The grid consisted of 16 cars, with three Formula Ford cars joining the FCR field. FCR also had a guest entrant, James Hogan, from Northern Ireland, who is on vacation in Australia for several months. 

The qualifying session unfortunately saw Stuart Kostera in the Ralt RT4 drop out and not return to the track.

The competition at the front of the field was fierce with Marty Bullock and Simon Alderson going toe to toe. Simon taking out top honours in each round and Marty dropping away from the challenge with an overheating BDA engine in his Chevron.

Andrew Nielsen ran consistently in third place until the final race when Harvey Leys got ahead of him at the start in his Chevron sports car and never looked like losing that spot.

Ricky Virago’s beautifully prepared and presented Supervee Ralt finished 5th overall.

Lance Carwardine’s woes continued with the rebuilt Jane Brabham, having qualified and running well in the first race a mechanical gremlin forced the car to stop in the second race and not to return to the track.

Outright results for the meeting were;

1st           Simon Alderson                                 75 pts

2nd          Marty Bullock                                    60 pts

3rd           Andrew Nielsen                                 53 pts
