After 3 straight DNF’s, Mike successfully finished 23rd in the HSCC’s touring car race on Saturday in his Ford Anglia 105E.
After having spent the best part of 8 months repairing it since his crash at Silverstone last year – the Anglia made it’s first outing in anger in it’s brand new broadspeed colour scheme:
Practice and qualifying took place on Friday and with the sun shining – Mike managed a decent position of 24th on the grid.
Although the sun threatened to appear Saturday’s race was overcast, and started badly too with Mike dropping a couple of places with a sluggish start. However after some good dicing with Anglia’s, Mini’s and Jag’s he came through to a creditable 23rd place with a fastest lap of 1 minute 59.
