The Classic Touring Car Racing Club brought the curtain down on its 2021 season in style this past Sunday (October 17) with an action-packed race day at Mallory Park.
Producing edge-of-the-seat thrills throughout what has been a captivating campaign, a mammoth array of tin top machines flocked to the picturesque Leicestershire venue to entertain those lining the spectator bankings.
In the Pre ’66 Touring Car category, being behind the wheel of Ford was seemingly the way to go as victories were shared between two iconic models. Robyn Slater powered his Anglia to the chequered flag in race one before Alan Greenhalgh came to the fore in his Flacon to triumph in race two.
Spoils were also shared in the Pre ’83 Touring Car ranks. Thomas Harvey pipped Stephen Primett to victory in the opener before the latter struck back a few hours later, winning in his Ford Escort MkII.
The amalgamated Pre ’93 and Pre ’03 Touring Car contests boasted a bumper entry list and with it an unmissable opening race as just over half a second separated the top two, with Andrew Neal getting the better of James Everard.
Race two saw Everard finish in second place once again, although this time it was to Gary Prebble and by the slightly larger margin of more than six seconds.
Jason West couldn’t be bettered in the combined Classic Thunder and Blue Oval Saloon Series bouts. At the wheel of his BMW M3 E46, West fended off the charging Jason Hughes to win race one before stretching his legs in race two to complete a clean sweep.
Capping off the day’s action were a pair of races from the Jaguar Enthusiasts’ Club, which was concluding its maiden season alongside the CTCRC. Tom Robinson ultimately proved too much for the opposition as he charged to back-to-back wins in his XJR6.
