The British Automobile Racing Club took centre stage at Oulton Park this past Saturday (May 28) for a full-throttle race day that had everyone captivated from start-to-finish.
Organised and run by the Club’s North West Centre, a bumper crowd were treated to a feast of on-track entertainment around the Cheshire venue by the Classic Touring Car Racing Club and CNC Heads Sports/Saloon Car Championship.
Spoils were shared in the Poultec Race Engines Pre 66 Touring Cars around the International layout with Alan Greenhalgh striking first, powering his Ford Falcon Sprint to victory in the opening bout.
Greenhalgh could only manage third in the second encounter though as Barry Sime piloted his Morris Mini Cooper S to the top step of the podium by more than six seconds.
Just one race was held for the Shell Oils Pre 83 Championship and Laser Tools Pre 93 Touring Cars, which amalgamated together. As he has done countless times before, Dave Griffin proved to be the driver to beat in his BMW E36 M3, narrowly pipping Stephen Primett to victory.
After enjoying a sensational debut at Silverstone back in March, the Super Tourers returned to action alongside the Burty Haulage Pre 03 Touring Cars. Anthony Reid rolled back the years as he chalked up victory in his Nissan Primera in race one before Richard Wheeler came to the fore in race two in the sister Primera.
Richard Wood underlined his dominance in the combined Classic & Historic Thunder Saloons / Blue Oval Saloons Series races, guiding his Holden Commodore to the chequered flag in first place on both occasions.
Capping off the CTCRC excitement were two bouts from the Berkshire Jags Jaguar Challenge; where Tom Robinson and James Ramm reigned supreme to score a win apiece.
Rounding out the day’s track action was a pulsating CNC Heads Sports/Saloon Car Championship contest. Flying the flag for the Club’s North West Centre, the multi-class category produced a frenetic 12-lap contest which was ultimately won by Jon Woolfitt in his Spire GTR.
