May Update
Championship entries are now up to 76 contenders, the first time we have had over 75 since 2004, although not the dizzy heights of the 94 entries back in 2002!
With the first 3 rounds done and dusted, ( well, not too much dust at the third one !), we are looking forward to the Fourth Round, (SDCC), which, has had a full entry for a few weeks now. The remaining rounds are all experiencing high entry applications, and filling up quickly, so getting your entries in early is even more important than in the previous few years.
With quite a few of the classes well supported, and looking very competitive, it is difficult to try predict the potential final top 3 overall at the moment.
Hopefully the timekeeper’s result service hiccups, for whatever reason on two of the rounds, have been sorted, and at least now competitors are able to access on site screens again, in socially distanced conditions at the office.
The only event with regulations not yet issued is the MCMRC August round, but they should be available in the next week or so.
The organising committee will continue to hand out Championship car stickers, where requested, at the events, for those new entrants who have not received them.
Hopefully the current course out of lockdown will not change, and, we will continue the season as planned, and may even have some spectators back in the near future.

Report on Round 5

Curborough Sprint Championship


Results Round 5


The second S&HMC event of the Championship was, unfortunately cut short to one timed run, due to an accident leaving a competitor needing an ambulance.
As all second runs would not have been able to be achieved before the track’s 6.00pm noise curfew, this bought Championship regulations rule 1.6.1 into force for the first time ever, meaning the results are taken from everyone’s first timed runs.
The weather at least stayed dry for the second practice runs and everyone’s timed run.

The event kicked off with the swarm of MGZR’s in Sa and produced a second win for Steve Barrow from Jack Twomey, both, again under the Class record, with David Owen taking a great 3rd place. 4th, 5th and 6th, were Graham Harvey, Mike Smith and Jack Snape, respectively.
In Sb Bob Smith turned the tables on co driver Jamie Moffatt to take the win in the Saxo VTR.
Another great entry in Class Sc produced a really good contest with a Clio 1,2,3. Paul Glendenning taking the win, from co driver Wayne Parke, with John Adams third.
In Class 1a, the win again went to Stuart Ballinger in the Mini, with Keith Waters’ Metro second, and the ZR of Dean Ratcliffe taking third.
1B, the 1.4L to 2.0L road going class, saw the MGZR of Lee Willars taking the class win, from the MX5 of Melvyn Cox, with Derek Wallbank third in his 106 Rallye.
Simon Price’s Westfield claimed the win in 2B from the similar car of Paul Evans in second.
2L saw a win for John Caldicott, following the unfortunate accident to Leonard Bennett in the Elise, that he co-drives with his son, Scott. The good news was that Leonard was back at home on Monday after the precautionary trip to hospital.
The large capacity Mod Prod class, 3b, went to Adrian Crawley in his rapid 205GTI, long overdue his Championship return! The Clio of Mark Williams taking second.
The Williams family megabusa saw a win for son Mark, with Dad Phil taking second.
The Radical Libre see-saw scrap continued with a win for John Bradburn, with David Large in second, and David Bickley third.
Andrew Bisping won the 1100cc racing car class in his OMS.
The Formula Ford exponents also swapped the previous round’s positions with a win for the Van Diemen of Christopher Horton, with the Royale of Graham Cherry in second, and the Lotus 61 of David Reed third.

With the Championship at the half way point, after 5 rounds, the top 6 now looks like this:

  1. Stuart Ballinger 101
  2. Paul Glendenning            99
  3. John Bradburn   97.5
  4. Jack Twomey                     97.5
  5. Lee Willars                           96.5
  6. David Large                         96


Note : For info, following a few queries at the meetings, the Championship results are accessed by clicking the “blue” RESULTS word at the top of each round’s bulletin on the website.

The next round, the Owen MC Graham Hill Sprint, which has been on the Curborough calendar since the mid 60’s, is on June 20th. Hope to see most of you then.
