BHRC2 sup­ported by Sher­wood En­gines

Classic Ford - - MOTORSPORT -

The new BHRC2, sup­ported by Sher­wood En­gines, was cre­ated for 2018 to turn the spot­light on the Cat­e­gory 1 (pre-1968) and up to 1600cc cars in the cham­pi­onship. The di­vi­sion fea­tured a win­ner-takes-all sce­nario on the Track­rod be­tween the Lo­tus Cortina of Bob Bean/ Miles Cartwright and the fly­ing An­glia of Welsh­men Mal­colm Rich/Ar­wel Blainey.

Both crews were run­ning in the REIS Cat­e­gory 1 and it was Bean/Cartwright who emerged with both the Cat­e­gory 1 ti­tle and the BHRC2 crown. Bean went half a minute clear in the dark­ness of Fri­day night and the mat­ter was fi­nally set­tled when the hard-work­ing An­glia’s en­gine went poorly on Satur­day.

The MSA Bri­tish His­toric Rally Cham­pi­onship re­turns in 2019 with the North Wales Stages on March 30.

Bob Bean and Miles Cartwright had a great run in the Cortina, win­ning Cat­e­gory 1 and the BHRC2 crown.
