Clare beats the hordes in the Vintage Sports-car Club’s speed championship
Gary Clare, competing in the one-off Grannie Special from 1928, has been confirmed as overall winner of the Vintage Sports-car Club’s hugely successful speed championship.
Across a season of sprints and hillclimbs, Clare scored in eight of the nine rounds and was a clear champion. He capped his campaign with the best vintage time at Loton Park in September.
Jo Blakeney- Edwards, wife of prolific historic racer Patrick, finished overall runnerup in her 1929 Frazer Nash Super Sports while out-going champion David Furnell (1930 Austin 7) completed the top three.
Peter Batty (Frazer Nash) won the Young Driver Award for those under 30 and James T Roberts (1917 Vauxhall 30-98) won the Novice Award in his first season of competition.
