  • June Competitor Of The Month – Will Nicholls/Nick Broom & Darrell Taylor/Steve McNulty

    Will & Darrell took full advance of the The Abingdon Motorsport CAR-nival weekend by entering the sprint on the Saturday followed by the rally on the Sunday. Both challenged the more specialist sprint machinery for FTD with Will finishing 4th fastest and Darrell 5th. Sunday brought mixed fortunes with Will and Nick winning the Abingdon CAR-nival Stages (the 5th time they’ve won the event) but unfortunately turbo failure brought Darrell’s event to a premature end.

     

    Darrell and Steve made up for this disappointment by winning the John Overand Memorial Stages at Melbourne Airfield, East Yorkshire a few weeks later.

     

    It was great to see so many club members supporting the Abingdon Motorsport CAR-nival and it should be noted that Ben Smith had a great result finishing 14th o/all from a start number of 59.

     

    Outside of the Abingdon Motorsport CAR-nival weekend Richard Scarbrough co-drove Dan Bird to victory on the Rex Premier Anniversary Stages in their R5 Fiesta, Rob Swann finishing runner up. Declan Dear’s excellent run of results continued with Matthew Hirst winning the Kielder Forest Rally and Rhys Wyn Davies took his Darrian GTR+ to 2nd o/all on the Lucas Oil Rali Menai stages on Anglesey.

     

    Other non-rally results for club members in June included Angelica Fuentes finishing 4th o/all in her borrowed Lockhart at the Brooklands Museum Double 12 Auto Tests, Jamie McBain returning to Blyton for the rallycross and winning his category and Rob Collard finishing 3rd o/all at Spa in the British GT Championship round with his Lamborghini Huracan.

  • April Competitor Of The Month – Declan Dear

    Following on from their excellent win on the Get Jerky Rally North Wales – Interclub Event in March, Declan together with his driver Matthew Hirst won the Rallynuts Severn Valley Stages which used iconic forestry stages in mid Wales. The event ran alongside the British Rally Championship round that used exactly the same route and the pace that Matthew & Declan showed in their older R5 Fiesta would have placed them 6th o/all against the BRC regulars. It should also be noted that Rob Dennis had an excellent run in his Escort finishing 19th o/all, 3rd in class on the same event.

     

     

    Other notable results for SCMC members in April that showed the broad spread of motorsport events SCMC members compete in were, Darryl Taylor & Steve McNulty winning the Lookout Stages, the Quigley’s venturing to Belgium for the Rallye Salamandre and finishing 8th o/all, Will Nicholls and John Peck being at the sharpe end at the Island Car Centre Sandown Sprint on the Isle Of Wight, Jamie McBain for his class wins at the Pembrey BTRDA Rallycross, Rob Collard for finishing 5th o/all in the British GT Championship at Silverstone and Angelica Fuentes for competing in her first Autosolo and finishing 5th in class in the Tour Auto.

    It’s fair to say it was a busy month for SCMC members.

  • March Competitor Of The Month – Jamie McBain

    As headlined in the Motorsport News magazine “Mighty McBain” had a fantastic result on the Alan Healy Memorial Rally held at Cadwell Park at the end of March. Being a circuit rally championship event, the entry attracted a number of R5 cars, but Jamie finished 6 o/all and 1st in class with his Peugeot 205. Brake problems on the early stages had Jamie and co-driver Harry Walshaw down in 24th o/all but once sorted they set a number of top 5 stages times to fly up the leaderboard.

     

    Other notable SCMC results in March included Mark Kelly’s 6th o/all on the British Rally Championship North West Stages, Declan Dear co-driving Matthew Hirst to their 4th consecutive North Wales Rally – Interclub Event win and Angelica Fuentes co-driving Gabriel Perez to 2nd o/all in their Skoda R5 on the Rally Hecho in Mexico.

    It was a busy month for SCMC members.

  • February Competitor Of The Month – Mark Kelly
    Mark took a fantastic 5 second win on the closed road East Riding Stages in Yorkshire at the end of February. With an entry including approx. 30 R5 cars of various manufacturers, Mark came out on top against them all in his R5 Skoda, a brilliant result with Will Atkins in the co-drivers seat.
  • January Competitor Of The Month – Sean & Colin Quigley
    Sean & Colin mixed it with the regular Motorsport News Circuit Rally Championship regulars at Brands Hatch on an icy Saturday in mid-January and ended their day in 5th o/all, an excellent result given the entry.
    Other SCMC members recording finishes were
    Ben Smith who had a great run finishing 27th o/all from a start number of 63
    Oliver Hucklebridge finished his first ever event in the drivers’ seat in a very credible 35th o/all
    Scott/Darren Stutchbury 28th o/all in the Clio
    Paul/Ben Garraway 31st o/all in their Sunbeam
    Dominic Norman & Vlad Ardeleanu 45th o/all in the Golf
