Au­totest fi­nale

The Galloway News - - SPORT -

Sol­way Car Club rounded off their au­totest sea­son re­cently with two dif­fer­ent tar tests at Dun­dren­nan.

The con­di­tions in the first test were wet and slip­ping, mak­ing it very tricky for the 11 com­peti­tors.

In class one, Chris Adams was quick out of the blocks in the fam­ily shared Punto, tak­ing fastest times in the first three tests with Rab Hen­der­son in the MG close on his heels from Thomas McCar­ney in the Nis­san.

New mem­ber Ron Orr was hav­ing his first taste of tar test­ing with a run in Thomas’ Nis­san and was soon get­ting some good times in and en­joy­ing ev­ery minute.

With tests get­ting quicker, the early leader Chris held on to take the win from Rab then Thomas.

In class four Jack Hous­ton was all on his own in the RWD Mazda with the con­di­tions mak­ing it quite a hand­ful but good to watch.

First se­nior was Harry Adams in the Punto.

The sun shone for the 10 com­peti­tors on the sec­ond set of tests.

Again, it was a mainly class one en­try but a very close bat­tle en­sued.

Keith Rid­dick in the Rover set the pace at the start with Rab Hen­der­son’s MG, Richard Dick­son’s Citroen and Thomas McCar­ney in the Nis­san all chas­ing hard close be­hind and swap­ping fastest times. How­ever, it was Thomas with three very quick tests to fin­ish on top spot from Keith just a few sec­onds be­hind, fol­lowed by Richard.

In class two, young Scott Gourlay, in only his sec­ond tar test, was get­ting the hang of things in the Fo­cus with some re­spect­ful times.

First lady was Nancy Dick­son in the fam­ily shared new Citroen.

The club would like to thank the or­gan­is­ers, tim­ing and re­sults teams.
