Round 3 – Donington Park (MSCC) – 30 May 2011

MOTORING CLASSICS THOROUGHBRED SPORTSCAR CHAMPIONSHIP – DONINGTON PARK

MSCC Monday 30th May 2011

ROUND 3

The third round of the Motoring Classics Thoroughbred Championship for 2011 was at Donington for the Morgan Sports Car Club meeting. Numbers were again a little low but the Morgans had turned out in their dozens so we had a couple of classes from the overflowing Aero Trophy race. The weather forecast was again for wet weather and again they were right.

Twenty Two Thoroughbred drivers had appeared for this round, and together with the D & E classes of the Aero Racing Morgan Trophy we had thirty one on the grid. (more…)

ROUND 2

The second round of the Motoring Classics Thoroughbred Championship for 2011 was at Oulton Park for the MGCC meeting on the International Circuit.  The weather forecast was for wet weather and Russell and I travelled up on the Friday evening leaving Banstead at 19.15 and can confirm it was correct.

I was towing for the first time in around 20 years,  simples,  when on the M42 approaching the M5 we hit a massive electrical storm.  I followed with trepidation the lights of an artic in front making sure that I kept directly behind him with wipers going at full pace not able to see anything other than his lights.  Duck to water came to mind at this point, after about half an hour it eased slightly and we continued arriving for a welcome drink at around 23.30 in the Ian Prior ‘Clubhouse’.
