2024 Formula Classic – Round 1

Wanneroo Park 3rd March

The first race meeting of the year held all kind of promises that sadly failed to deliver.

The Phillip Island Classic drew several of our top competitors away from our grid together with several other regular competitors not have their cars ready in time for the event. The Formula Ford group were in a similar yet somewhat worse position with only a handful of entrants for their event. The organisers wisely amalgamated the two groups to make a half decent field of cars.

As if this was not enough of a challenge, the weather was very hot and humid making it very uncomfortable for everyone. Compound this now with a series of medical emergencies (none race driver related) that took the medical staff away from the track and halting proceedings. The perfect storm scenario.

Eventually the meeting was abandoned around 5.00 pm with only one race run but with many frustrated drivers and helpers.

It’s not clear at the time of writing whether points, partial points or no pints will be awarded for the day.

The highlight of the day was the barbeque at Jamie’s shed after everyone packed up and the beautiful MGTC of one of our guests.

Outright results for the meeting were;

1st           Arthur Abrahams                                             25 pts

2nd          Simon Alderson                                                20 pts
