With a maximum entry of 30, we enjoyed three tests of differing character at our evening autotest at TTS on Thursday 14th June. The first test, in front of the TTS building, was a fast flowing run close to threatening kerbs with a couple of reversing manoeuvres to add some technicality, not to say bravery. 

The 2nd Test had the potential to rearrange the bodywork as cars weaved quickly through concrete blocks. It was at this point, for the Midget brigade, that a heavy shower turned the test into a bar of soap. Again a nice flowing test with a couple of nice reversing manoeuvres to add some interest. 

The 3rd Test was a power forwards only slalom with a tricky tail throw in the middle where momentum was hard to find to carry off the move. Harder than it looked. 

Rather predictably Ashley Lamont took the honours with a perfect drive in the Vauxhall powered Special. Well done to him.  Looking calm and controlled,  Ashley put in a convincing win from Andy Blair who, unusually, was proving that he could also do rear wheel drive in dad Paul’s Stryker. Andy picked up the class win forfeited by overall winner Ashley.

A stellar drive by Crawford Ewing in the Nova Special earned him a terrific 3rd place, pipping David Jenkins by several seconds  

First MG home was Gordon Buckley in a very close battle with Michael Reid.

Class winners were as follows :

Class 4 – Gordon Buckley 

Class 5 – Andrew Earney 

Class 6 – Mark Francis

Class 7 – Andy Blair

Class 9 – Redmond McNamee
