Merlyn damage after Radical clash
Jono Baines will make a late start to his Historic FF1600 season after his Merlyn Mk20 was involved in a crash with a Radical in pre-season testing.
The Stockport school teacher was testing at Oulton Park early in April when he had a clash with a Radical sports-racer. The Formula Ford was damaged and had to go back to Merlyn for a chassis repair.
“It’s wrecked the season so I’ll just do Brands Hatch Grand Prix, Croft and Oulton Park in the summer,” said Baines.
He also uses the Merlyn in speed events and plans to contest sprints at Anglesey and Aintree in June as a shakedown.
