Jackson Makes it Five from Five at Snetterton

Cameron Jackson made it five wins from the opening five rounds of the Historic FF1600 Championship on the Snetterton 200 circuit on Saturday (1st June) during the Historic Sports Car Club’s race meeting.

Jackson’s Winkelmann dominated rounds four and five of the Historic Formula Ford championship to extend his unbeaten sequence. Callum Grant was the major rival to the defending champion but was not quite able to match Jackson’s searing pace and had to be content with a brace of second places. Behind Grant, Ben Tusting and Pierre Livingston were next up for the Speedsport team while Rob Smith headed the Over 50s division in the opener but later slipped to third behind Gislain Genecand and Brian Morris.

Adrian Langridge (March 803) was the dominate force in rounds two and three of the Classic Formula 3/URS Classic Formula Ford 2000 Championship. Racing his father’s car, Adrian won the opening race by a comfortable 25s but was only eight seconds clear of the Ralt RT3 of David Thorburn in the second race. Steve Mellish and Chris Levy battled hard for Classic FF2000 honours and ended the day with a win apiece.

The Historic Road Sports Championship also featured a class for invited cars from the 70s Road Sports category but no one could match the pace of the newly restored AC Cobra of Kevin Kivlochan, which scored two impressive victories on its first race weekend. Robin Pearce (Morgan Plus 8) and Jonathan Rose (Lotus Elan) shared the podium places in the first race before Roger Lee (Lotus 7) battled up to claim a narrow second place in the later race. Nic Strong (Marcos 3000GT) and Jai Sharma (Ferrari 308GTB) were the leading 70s contenders.

It was Ford powers to the head of the Historic Touring Car Championship races, with victory in the opening race going to the Mustang of Jonathan Evans. However, Richard Belcher chased hard in his Lotus Cortina and took victory in the second race when the Mustang retired. Bob Bullen (Anglia) and Roger Stanford (Lotus Cortina) were next up.

Rounds two and three of the HSCC Classic Clubmans Championship delivered race wins for the Mallocks of Alan Cook and Clive Wood. In the second race, Anthony Denham’s Phantom split them as Wood clinched victory after a close race.
