It gets better; Simon James and Jon Finnemore are also in Tigers in the V8 race, and Andy Yates hopes to have his gearbox back together in time to fight for a championship place in the Swinging Sixties!

Looks like a bit of a Chevrolet domination in the HRV8 race, including STOC member and FIA Tiger racer Neil Merry in his Corvette in 7th, with Jon Finnemore a cracking Ford-powered fly in the ointment in the Orange Bomber with a 2nd place; go to HRV8 challenge / race / classification:

Paul has clocked 15th with Rupert 17th in Simon James' FIA Tiger but it appears Simon's more rapid Tiger didn't start.

Meanwhile in the Swinging Sixties, Andrew Yates and Adrian Mossop came 4th but the lap chart appears to indicate 3rd at the end of the penultimate lap so I await more details...
