The Mountain straight course is long and fast and a firm favorite with many competitors. Fortunately, unlike the day before there were no tales of panel beating woes from what I could hear.
Tim Edmonson (Force PC) got out to an early lead but Tom Donovan (Pilbeam) had other ideas with a neat FTD of 41.34s on his third run. When Tom gets used to the Hewland’s gated gear change just look out!
Tim had to settle for second quickest on 42.03s with Steve Hooker (Jedi Suzuki) back in third.
Phil Pratt (Trojan) claimed fourth this time, Ron Hay (RH Honda), was next, while Michele Guyer (March) nailed sixth from Searle Courtwright (Axtell Suzuki).
Matthew Barnes shared the Toyota Celica Sports Sedan for eighth O/R and best of the Tin Tops this time around, with Steve Moxon (Axtell Suzuki) and Matt Halpin’s Torana rounding out the top ten.
