Mer­lyn dam­age af­ter Rad­i­cal clash

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

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.
