2022 Formula Classic – Round 5
Kostera Cup Meeting, Wanneroo – 25th June
The fifth round of the 2022 Formula Classic season was held at Wanneroo Raceway on Saturday 25th June.
It felt like déjà vu!
It was a beautiful winter’s day; there was a very small grid of Formula Classic cars entered, Dan Gate blitzed the qualifying session, failed to finish the first run and then blitzed the second and third races. Have I just slipped back to the May race meeting?
Allan Jones took outright honours on the day with a first and two seconds, it was Allan’s first outright win in his beautifully prepared Ralt RT5 Congratulations Allan, hopefully there’ll be more outright wins to come in the future for you.
The broken driveshaft on Dan’s car at the start line cost him dearly with no points for the first run and despite wins in races 2 and 3 he was only able to manage third overall for the day.
Lance Carwardine had a steady run throughout the meeting in his Jane Brabham netting him overall second place.
Simon Alderson, normally a front runner, had a tiny touch with Allan Jones’ rear wheel exiting the Esses that damaged his front wing and put him out of race 2.
Outright results for the meeting were;
1st Allan Jones 65 pts
2nd Lance Carwardine 53 pts
3rd Dan Gate 50 pts
Handicap results for this round;
1st David Drearden 21 pts
2nd Allan Jones 20 pts
3rd Craig Thompson 18 pts
