Double delight for the HSCC’S Wolds winners

CADWELL PARK HSCC 18-19 MAY

Double single-seater victories for Jon Milicevic, Samuel Harrison and Benn Simms topped the Historic Sports Car Club’s annual trek to Lincolnshi­re for the Wolds Trophy.

On a weekend of repeat winners, Milicevic had to work hard in the opening Historic Formula 3 counter as Peter de la Roche mounted a strong challenge. However, when the Alexis faltered, Milicevic’s Brabham BT21B was away and gone.

Harrison, too, had his rivals, notably Ben Glasswell – who was flying in the opening FF2000 race before he put a wheel wide at Charlie’s and spun into the wall. Instead, Graham Fennymore took up the chase of the young Yorkshirem­an.

Simms stepped back to Historic FF1600 for the weekend, accompanie­d by his rival and mate Callum Grant. The two triple category champions are not chasing the title this year but wanted to compete at Cadwell and took the chance to turn in two mighty displays of wheel-to-wheel racing. Somehow Simms managed to be ahead twice when it really mattered, but both winning margins were less than 0.4 seconds.

John Williams did his 70s Road Sports title bid a power of good with a double victory as he saw off the Lotus challenge, which was spearheade­d by Howard Payne. The Europa’s tardy getaway in the opener allowed Williams to jump free and the Porsche was on top again in the second race.

It’s been quite a while since Lotus 20s dominated the rear-engined Formula

Junior pack but that’s just what happened at Cadwell as Andrew Hibberd headed

Nic Carlton-smith in both contests.
