Great Start to New AROC Racing Series

By Richard Murtha

The first rounds of this new series, sponsored by Mangoletsi, the Cheshire Alfa dealer who have such a long history with Alfa Romeo, faced a lot of competition on Sunday.

There were many other events so for an initial event, a field of 11 (including two“invitation class” cars) that was not too bad and I understand from Sally, the entries co-ordinator, that there is more interest in the forthcoming Brands rounds, so it is looking positive.

I did not arrive in time to see qualifying and I am sure the tracktemperature was a bit low first thing, but for most all went well, with Roz Shaw starting as she meant to continue, setting a fastest time of 1:12.458 to lead the grid by more than a second in her glorious GTAm, with Dave Messenger in the 75 3.0 (Invitation Class) in second – though finishing the session with a broken exhaust, necessitating classic fettling with cut-down tin cans and jubilee clips before the first race. To read the article in full, please click here >
