FDMC Spring Solo, 2009, Page 2
"....And the driver has to climb in through here..." Owner Chris Benoy explains the mysteries of the Imp engined Clan Crusader kit car, to
scrutineer Peter Moorcroft.
Duncan and Claire Rodd took turns driving Claire's VW Lupo GTi, with Duncan winning Class C - perhaps we'll see the Lupo competing again?
Paul Brimelow and his MG TF took a strong second place, out of twelve entries, in Class E; and Mark Nicoll from Dolphin MC took fourth in
Class D, with his Renault Clio Sport.
Arthur Chan, who's more familiar with Canadian Solo events, shared Ian Hardy's MX5, to take the 4th place award in Class E; Southsea MC's
Andy Fields was using his Nova, freshly prepared for Enduro rallies; and Ashley Evans, whose BMW was unwell, gave his Mondeo Estate a
Sunday to remember, instead.
Among some more of our first time competitors, Nigel Blay was driving his MX5: Maxwell Starr was sharing the 106 with its owner, Tim Cartledge
(So who finished ahead? Well, borrowed cars always seem to go faster...), and Tom and Alan Caldecourt were sharing the red Westfield,
which Alan claims he bought for driving to work !
