Cheverton chalk pit saw the first unsealed round of the 2019 championship. A tough venue with smooth chalk, deep ruts and loose gravel sections, not to mention the ramp that joins the upper and lower areas.
Straight away it was clear the battle for the top step of the podium would be between Joe Moore in his Subaru Impreza and Dan Young in his stripped out classic Mini. The pair were keeping a nervous eye on Michael Marrison in his Puma engined Ford Fiesta – he was on typical fast form but struggling to put a clean time on the board.
Class 1 was hotly contested, with Louise Wren and Shane Parry bringing the fight to Steve Glass. In the end, Steve managed to take the class win and even beat Steve and Marion Brett’s class 3 Mini.
Hannah Thompson took fastest lady of the day in Michael’s Fiesta whilst leaving bits of car strewn all over the course. In the end, the entire exhaust, one arch liner and a subframe mount met their demise.
By the end of the final run the podium was Michael Marrison in 3rd, Dan Young in 2nd and Joe Moore in 1st.
Our next unsealed event is at Knighton Sandpit on 26th May.
