Bankhurst wins on Mal­lock Mk21 de­but

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

Sea­soned his­toric racer Ian Bankhurst sam­pled a front-run­ning Mal­lock Mk21 for the first time at the Wal­ter Hayes Tro­phy at Sil­ver­stone on Satur­day and came away with an All­com­ers vic­tory.

Bankhurst has con­nec­tions to the Mal­lock fam­ily as his grand­fa­ther Bryan Small raced against founder Arthur Mal­lock in the early 1960s. His fa­ther Alan owns a Mal­lock Mk8 and Arthur Mal­lock once raced the one-litre F3 Alexis that Bankhurst now races in His­toric F3.

“I’ve wanted to drive one of these for a long time,” said Bankhurst be­fore his race-win­ning run in the Clas­sic Club­mans car.
