Calder clings on despite more misfire problems
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.
