Australian Muscle Car - - Muscle Sport -

Tony Al­ford (Nis­san GT-R) dom­i­nated the Au­tumn His­toric War­wick meet­ing at Mor­gan Park with three wins from four races in the Her­itage Tour­ing Cars cat­e­gory. This in­cluded win­ning the Glenn Se­ton Tro­phy for best Group A run­ner. The only other out­right race win­ner, in a hand­i­cap af­fair for the Lloyd Bax Tro­phy, was Dun­can Mackel­lar (ex-Al­lan Mof­fat ANZ Sierra). This saw the field de­part­ing the start­line in three groups, with faster cars to the rear of each group. Group two started 20 sec­onds after group one, with group three start­ing a fur­ther 15 sec­onds later. Al­ford in the Sky­line fell just 1.3 sec­onds short of beat­ing Mackel­lar over the fin­ish­line in a highly en­ter­tain­ing af­fair.

Mean­time, the John French Tro­phy, for first Group C run­ner across the line, was claimed by Chris Bow­den (To­kico Mazda RX7).

The Her­itage Tour­ing Cars will next race at the Syd­ney Retro Speed­fest, June 11-12.
