KEEPING YOU IN TOUCH - YOUR FREE MONTHLY NEWSPAPER DELIVERED DOOR-TO-DOOR FOR 33 YEARS WIGTON MOTOR CLUB Fiona Tyson & Chris Hunter, Mazda MX5
Wigton Motor Club completed their year’s events with their Festive Autotest and Production Car Auto- test at Lillyhall. There was a capacity entry, with drivers coming from Dumfries and Barrow to take part. The event counts in the
WMC overall and Autotest Championships, this being the first round of the 2020 series.
David Wiggins, Chris Hunter and their team set out four excellent tests which were run five times, giving a total of 20 tests and 600 total runs between the 10.30am start and the finish at 2.30pm
The battle for the overall victory was always between Craig Stamper and Peter Wright, the Peugeot and mini drivers rarely being more than the odd second apart. A cone penalty cost Peter ten seconds and they finished thirteen seconds apart after a brilliant display of driving.
In third place overall and winner of the production car autotest was Ian Wozencroft in his Mazda MX5, with autotester Jack Palmer in fourth place in his Rover, which seemed to have an unusual liking for cones on this event!
Drew Maclean was just one second behind in his MX5, again being in the PCA. Rob Iveson was next up in his Ford Ka and taking the PCA FWD class. Geoff Rae was next with Phil Hodgson in his MX5, taking the RWD class award.
The first lady was Fiona Tyson and 14- year old Jack Long was the first junior.
Wigton Motor Club have announced their programme of events for 2020. As the biggest motor club in the northern region, they have events for all types of motoring enthusiast.
