British Autotest Championship

Link Up Ltd MSA    Round 1: Foxley Autotest, run by Herefordshire MC.

Stephen Wild driving an ABS took a very narrow victory at the Foxley Autotest, beating the Caterham of Richard Pinkney by just one second. Reigning MSA Champion Alastair Moffatt was having an off day on his home event and finished just 7 seconds off the lead, but it was a good day for John Moffatt, who dominated Class B and eventually finished 4th overall in the Vauxhall Nova. 

Anthony Preston won Class A in his 1380 Mini and rounded off the top 10, a worthy result after spending the previous day competing in the East Anglian Endurance Rally.  The new road going saloon class saw the return of Dave Cook in his Ford Anglia 100E, Dave bringing the car home with a class win and 15th overall.  Ireland's Simon Echlin was giving his new Caterham 7 its British debut, but rear suspension failure saw him and Malcolm Livingston, who was double driving, retire early from the event. 

Next Round: Bolton Autotest 26th April 2009.
