FDMC Challenge Shield Grass Autotest, May 2003
(Pictures - Paul Prescott: to display captions, rest cursor on pictures)
This year's 'grass roots' motorsport started with the Challenge Shield event at Crondall,
one of our regular sites, where competitors drove six tests twice, with their best times to count.
The National B event featured a small but select entry of ACSMC Championship
contenders, with Martin Neal and his Midget emerging as the overall winners.
Paul's pictures in this report are from the Clubsport event, where Jamie Bailey
took FTD with this Nova:
James Larcher shared the Orion with Katie Hunt, while John Nicholls gave a first outing to this
Freestyle special, with rear mounted Mini engine.
Dave Dockree and Andy Boyington shared Dave's Sunbeam 1.6Ti - which has done more events than anyone
can remember - while Grenville Williamson introduced his Renault MPV to autotesting.... taking the Scenic route?
Our grass autotesting season continues with the Summer Sort-Out, on June 29th;
regs for this event are now available, from the 'News' page of this site, and early entries are always welcome!
