MOTORING CLASSICS THOROUGHBRED SPORTSCAR CHAMPIONSHIP
Race Report – 26 June 2010 – AMOC Brands Hatch – Round 4

The AMOC mid summer meeting at Brands Hatch was on the Indy circuit and Thoroughbreds had taken one of their grids as had the Morgan Challenge and together we filled the bottom part of the outer paddock and were the two largest grids of the day.  The Indy circuit is 1.1986 miles and we had booked a twenty minute race.  It was an early start as a 7.50 signing on and scrutineering was on the timetable with a 10.05 practice and from early morning the sun was hot with an afternoon temperature of 84 degrees and a few red faces.

Round 3 – MG Live – Silverstone Historic GP – 6 June 2010

MOTORING CLASSICS THOROUGHBRED SPORTSCAR CHAMPIONSHIP

Race Report – 6th June 2010 – MGCC Silverstone Historic GP

This year’s MG Car Club’s premier meeting was for the first time held on the Historic Grand Prix Circuit with a length of 3.1940 miles, which for many club drivers would probably be the first and only time they would compete here. The track was mostly finished but the majority of the circuit had building works in progress in preparation for the British Grand Prix on the 11th July and access to the stands and viewing points was limited.

The race was to be of 20 minutes duration on Sunday afternoon’s programme with the practice starting at 11.37 and a massive grid of 37 drivers entered. Among these were a couple of invited drivers who wished to race on the grand prix circuit but were not included in our points or awards. One guest in particular causing a bit of a stir in a Knobbley Lister Jaguar Replica.
