Brands Hatch - Saturday 12 March 2005
SUPER SILHOUETTES - MONOPOSTO

Pictures by Keith Duke.

Being the staunch Longhurst fan that I am I went to Brands on Saturday. A very nice day with a biting cold wind - still you can't have everything.

Dave's class are called Super Silhouettes and are basically NHR's but a bit more sophisticated. Dave did really quite well and qualified as second fastest to Keith White. Keith's driveshaft gave out on the line leaving Dave to actually win in his first race in the category. Payback arrived in race 2 when Dave's propshaft let go when he was at full pelt on the top straight (120 mph ish !!) leaving Steve Hall to win from Keith White.

Running in the same race as these cars are the VSR6's. These started out as being a retirement home for old Eurocar Mondeo's but none of them turned up leaving, what I believe to be, some retired Grand National Coupe's from the Incarace part of the world. They sounded great number and 61 was truly spectaclar.

Also on the bill at Brands were a formula called Monoposto which is basically a "catch all" class for redundant single seaters up to ( I think) 2 litres. There was a fair few ex-British F3 championship cars and lots of other things and they actualy were pretty quick.

The last race of the day was won by this car driven by John Carding. I never met John during his racing days but the programme shows him as being from Leeke in Staffs. He was clearly an "older" driver and it seems too much of a coincidence to me!! What do you think??

Anyway - enough of my rambling - hope you like the pictures! (Ed's note - we sure do and can anyone confirm if John Carding is the ex-Hot Rodder?  Incidentally, this is the first-ever circuit race meeting to be featured on Rolling Start with the exception of Mallory Park and Lydden Hill when they feature oval formulas!)
