Friday the 19th of August and Raceway 81 saw drivers arriving from all over the UK to warm up for the Summer Retro festival. By Saturday morning 20 racers were ready to do combat in Saloon and Formula One, along with practice for Can-am and Tottenham / Retro sports, the classes raced on the Sunday.
Saturday night saw a happy gathering of 18 racers at what would seem to be a favourite eating venue for visitors, the Bowes Incline Hotel.
Sunday dawned with 24 racers for Can-am and Tottenham/Retro sports, the faster classes of the weekend.
This year saw George Kimber topping the race table with 4 wins, a great achievement! Overall Concours for the weekend was won by Danny Kempson with class wins for Steve Kempson in Saloon, George Kimber in Formula One, Steve Taylor in Can-Am and Danny in Tottenham/Retro Sports. Danny was the overal Concours winner on points count over the 4 concours classes.
