|Prescott 26th May 2012|
Glorious Gloucestershire and the picturesque and sunny setting of
Prescott welcomed a merry band of 14 drivers with their cars for round
three. The entries included two new faces in Stuart Barnes with an
immaculate IOTA P1 and David Bishop-Miller, who at 16 must be our
youngest pilot, driving the venerable Cooper Mk 2, Kenya. Stuart has
spent many years restoring his car and it was interesting to see how it
differs from mine.

So on to the afternoon, with 12 drivers raring to go. First away was
young David, recording a respectable time for his first ever competition
run. Unfortunately, someone had left oil on the entry hairpin to the
return road so car failed to turn and hit a post head on. This brought a
halt to proceedings for a short while whilst he was checked over.
Thankfully he was fine, even if the car was a bit bent. The next car was
father Richardís Revis. He recorded a time but the piston in the JAP
then exploded wrecking the engine and causing another stoppage.
