The meeting started with practice with drivers fine-tuning their cars for the races.

On Sunday, November 25 doors opened early at the club’s headquarters on Pound Farm, Hevingham with vehicles taking part based on Formula 1 models, Can-Am cars and Group 5 Sports cars, dating from the 1960s until the early 1980s.

Mike Harvey, club owner, said: “Richard Mack from Billericay, Essex took the Formula 1 award, Mike Thomson from Peterborough, the Group 5 sports award, and Mick Kerr, from Cambridge, the Can-Am award.

“James Hancock, the driver from Presto Park, came second in the main Formula 1 event, a well-deserved place up against so much national and international talent.

“Driver of the day award went to Richard Mack with 344 points, followed by Mick Kerr with 300 points.”
