It is with deep regret that we advise that despite a number of meetings, extensive discussions and alternative proposals, we have been unable to reach agreement Whirlwind TV / Film Productions (currently based at Abingdon) regarding shared use of the venue for the Long Course Sprint, which was due to be held on 11th April 2021. At this moment there are no plans for a re-arranged date.
We thank you for your overwhelming support for the event and look forward to seeing you at Abingdon, hopefully in late September / early October, for The Abingdon Motorsport CAR-nival.
- December Competitor Of The Month – Rob Swann
Following on from winning the HammerTime 20 Rally in August and finishing runner up to Ken Block on the SOL Rally Barbados in October, Rob finished off his season by winning the Barbados Winter Rally (if you call 30 degrees winter!) in his Fiesta.
Well done Rob
- November Competitor Of The Month – Rob Collard
Rob Collard partnered by Sandy Mitchell won the final round of the British GT Drivers Championship at Silverstone, leading for most of the 3-hour race and in turn they won the championship outright in their Barwell Motorsport Lamborghini Huracan GT3, a fantastic achievement for Rob in his first season away from the BTCC
- October Competitors Of The Month – Angelica Fuentes, Rob Swann & Rob Dennis
SCMC competitors gave the committee a difficult job to select a competitor of the month for October, with club members producing fantastic results across the globe. Given the excellent results achieved it was decided that we’d have three winners of COTM for October.
Angelica’s annual trip to the weeklong La Carrera Panamericana produced 3rd o/all with Gabriel Perez in the Studebaker. The crew encountered a couple of mechanical issues along the way which restricted their opportunity to challenge for the win this year.
Following his HammerTime 20 Rally win in August, Rob returned to Barbados to compete on the SOL Rally Of Barbados with the view of continuing his winning streak on the island. Leading on the Saturday night, Rob made a couple of minor mistakes on Sunday that let Ken Block through into the lead with his brand new M-Sport Fiesta but 2nd o/all against this competition was still a fantastic result.
A mention should also be made of fellow SCMC members Chris Surman & Zowie Boiston who also made the trip to Barbados with their Subaru, unfortunately a fuel leak restricted their pace but they still finished 29th o/all, 1st in class.
Back in the UK, Rob Dennis was the outright winner of the Cotswold Stages, held at Down Ampney Airfield in Gloucestershire at the end of October. Conditions were very challenging during the day, with very heavy rain in the morning making driving conditions more difficult but Rob managed them better than the rest of the entry setting a number of fastest stage times during the day.
- September Competitor Of The Month – John Stone & Steve McNulty
On his first trip down from Lancashire for the CAR-nival, John was 9th fastest, 1st in class on Saturdays sprint and then followed that up 4th o/all with Steve McNulty alongside on the rally. John’s R5 Fiesta was in good company on the event run under Motorsport UK Covid-19 restrictions with many teams having their first opportunity to compete again in 2020.

- August Competitor Of The Month – Will Nicholls & Rob Swann
With motorsport activities restarting under Covid restrictions this has allowed some SCMC members to dust off their cars and start competing again which has given use some results to review for competitor of the month.
For August we’ve got joint COTM winners. Firstly, for Will Nicholls who took FTD at the Long Course sprint. The 4 wheel drive Subaru certainly suited the damp conditions but beating some of the more specialist sprint cars was an excellent result for Will.

Rob Swann choose sunny conditions for his win, Barbados in fact. In preparation for the Rally Of Barbados later in the year, Rob won the HammerTime 20 Rally in his Fiesta R5.
