Or­gan­iser: Bri­tish Sprint Cham­pi­onship When: June 4/5 Where: Pem­brey Starters: 114

Colin Calder sur­vived a se­ri­ous mis­fire, to claim Bri­tish Sprint Cham­pi­onship vic­tory at Pem­brey last Satur­day.

But nei­ther he nor his daugh­ter Heather could fend off John Gra­ham in their stut­ter­ing car as the Welsh ac­tion con­cluded on Sun­day.

For the Calders, their times were a sig­nif­i­cant num­ber of sec­onds away from their best in ideal con­di­tions. On Satur­day, Colin snatched the vic­tory from Gra­ham with Heather Calder in third spot.

On Sun­day, the top two changed places with just 0.1s be­tween them.

In fourth spot on both days was Terry Holmes. His car had over­come a mis­fire from Snet­ter­ton two weeks be­fore. His co-driver Gra­ham Por­rett ben­e­fited too, with times and po­si­tions en­hanc­ing as the week­end pro­gressed.

Matt Hil­lam out­paced Steve Broughton on the open­ing day in the works Sbd-dal­lara F3 car for fifth but slipped be­hind on Sun­day.
