Alec Graham ended Pete Sparrow’s recent run of dominance in what was a compacted 2CV Parts.com Classic Racing Championship this year to be crowned champion after producing a superlative display behind the wheel.
Widely recognised for close-quarter, exciting racing, the series once again enjoyed memorable year as the iconic 2CV machines producing wheel-to-wheel entertainment wherever they went.
Traditionally made up of four or five race meetings, this year saw a short, sharp three-event calendar put together in the wake of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and subsequent suspension of motorsport in UK.
Kicking off the season around the undulating twists and turns of Cadwell Park, Graham began his pursuit of title glory in the best possible way as he powered his way to a stunning victory in the opening encounter.
Bagging valuable points in race two as Luca Proietti triumphed, Graham assumed top spot in the championship standings and ultimately never let it go.
Viewed as the jewel in the crown of the 2CV Racing calendar each year, the annual 24-hour race at Snetterton provided the next challenge for the series.
After a true race of attrition and a total of 696 laps, the Wingrove/MWR Racing quartet of Matthew Cobb, Peter Dalkin, David O’Keeffe and Mark Waghorn emerged victorious.
Finishing fifth overall but first of the UK 2CV Racing competitors, Graham bagged big points to help in his quest for the coveted crown.
Bringing the curtain down on their season at Mallory Park, the one-make series served up a feast of entertainment as outgoing champion Sparrow signed off in style by winning both races.
Behind, points leader Graham did enough in both encounters to ensure he secured an unassailable lead and with it, the championships title by 90 points.
The 2021 2CV Parts.com Classic Racing Championship will see the calendar return to five events, with the 24-hour race assuming its spot as the series’ finale.
