2019 Formula Classic – Round 2

Collie Icebreaker – 30th / 31st March

The second round of the 2019 Formula Classic season was dominated by the Formula Ford 2000 cars taking out the top three spots in the Collie Icebreaker event. However, it wasn’t all their own way to start with Michael Henderson dominating the first two races on Saturday in his Ralt RT4 until a gearbox failure on Sunday took him out of the running.

Twelve cars entered the event but sadly only 9 cars took the start after early failures in qualifying for Marty Bullock’s Chevron, Ricky Virago’s Ralt and Lance Carwardine’s OMS.

 It was good to see the return of the Dave Watkins to the Formula Classic ranks reunited with his beautifully presented Royale RP31M and Colin McKee in his Reynard FF2000. Both drivers and cars performed well finishing 4th and 3rd respectively in the outright weekend results.

Outright results for the weekend were;

1st           Simon Alderson                                  90 pts

2nd          Craig Thompson                               76 pts

3rd           Colin McKee                                       70 pts

Handicap results for the weekend were;

1st            David Watkins                                  34 pts

2nd          Glenn Swarbrick & Simon Alderson      22 pts

The next round is at Barbagallo on Saturday 13th April, let’s see if we can put out another large group of cars to support this event and the WASCC.

 

2019 Formula Classis – Round 1

WASCC Golden Jubilee – 2nd / 3rd March

The first round of the 2019 Formula Classic season kicked off in glorious fashion at the WASCC Golden Jubileeevent with 17 entries. As usual, the field include a wide range of car ranging from early 60’s through to the early 90’s.

It was good to see two new cars joining the class for the first time, notably Andrew Nielsen’s Argo-Toms TRD and Lance Carwardine’s OMS SF/2A. Sadly the OMS didn’t make it beyond qualifying due to an engine oil problem. Similarly the Argo had problems and was retired after race 1.

It was also great to see the return of the WASCC president Russell Sewell to the Formula Classic ranks after a sabbatical for a few years with his monstrous Lola T800 Indy car. The rumbling of the V8 motor sounded fantastic as it went along the start / finish straight.

Maintaining his 2018 season form, Michael Henderson continued his domination in the opening round of the 2019 season winning all four races; however Simon Alderson and Marty Bullock were snapping at his heels all the while and kept him honest.

Harvey Leys was sporting a new vivid green colour scheme on his Tiga SC84, he ran well on day one but unfortunately did not run on the Sunday.

Outright results for the weekend were;

1st           Michael Henderson                        100 pts

2nd          Simon Alderson                                78 pts

3rd           Ricky virago                                        68 pts

During the off season Kevin Taylor revised the handicapping system to allow the results to be processed on the day, below are the handicap results for this round;

1st           Murray Charnley

2nd          Craig Thompson

3rd           Allan Ould
