The July Clubday Autotests were held on Sunday 11th July at Rufforth old Airfield ( Potato Store Area) organised by Joe Gamble. Seventeen competitors turned out, The results can be found by clicking on the red link at the bottom of the page.

Stuarts Recap – Well the dust has settled  on the July Autotests – yes we did have dust ! and what a great mornings motorsport we had. 17 entries including 3 class 5 with passengers.

Joe set up 3 good tests, 1 on good concrete, 1 on tarmac & loose and 1 on good tarmac with 2 of the tests including some reversing with quite a few fails & + 10’s to upset the results.

Chris Newlove had a clean run in his 1275 Mini putting up 5 fastest times to win overall & class 4. Ben Jude followed with another clean run finishing about 8 secs behind Chris to win class 2.          Gary Wrigglesworth was 3rd with partner Leonne in the hot seat to win class 5.                                  Neil Raven in his “new” red peril MX5 was 4th to win class 3 despite 1 fail. Gary Hodgson had 4 fastest times but a fail& 3 plus 10’s dropped him from a certain overall win to 5th.

Bob a Nob was a modified & extended Test 1. That man Raven was fastest but with a 2 sec handicap the win went to Andy Brown in the orange MX5 who pipped Ray Jude by 3/100 sec. !!!

Biggest dust cloud & longest sideways slide easily went to Alastair Brown on Test 2 – in his words maybe not the quickest way but certainly the most fun ! – certainly looked good.

The  Axeman challenge is looking a bit one sided with Ben winning again & Neil is well in the lead in the MX5 challenge.

Thanks to Joe for organizing , Bill ( Joe’s dad) Malc for marshalling & Jazzy Baz for filming ( on his facebook site) & sorting all the equipment.

 

JUNE CLUBDAY AUTOTESTS

The June Clubday Autotests were held at Acaster West, eight competitors turned out on a hot dry morning, dust was a problem for Gary Hodgson in his open Ka special but he persevered and pushed Andy Brown into second place by less than 2 seconds.

Stuarts Recap – 8 competitors enjoyed some good tests laid out by Malc Skilbeck who stood in for Steve Smith who had an unavoidable change of plans. We knew entries would be low due to a clash with a grass autotest organised by A & P to which some of our regulars decided to attend but we had hoped for 10 – 12. It was looking like 4 or 5 at one stage but a welcome returning Karl Hunter & the Sutton duo saved the day. Gary Hodgson won the event & also the B a N ( thanks Gary for donating your winnings to the club) No Axe man challenge this month but hopefully they will be at the July event. The MX5 challenge was always going to be a battle of the Browns & it was ! But for a fail “Brown Senior” would have taken the honours but as we all know ” buts & ifs” don’t count so “Brown Junior” won the day. I trailed behind but was pleased with my slow improvement taming the Jap beast.

So you lot you missed a good event in June but never mind the July event is now sorted

CLUBDAYS (AUTOTESTS)

YORK Motor Club Autotest League events are run on a monthly schedule (the winner organising a following months autotest).

YMC-Centenary-Autotest-034-150x150

What is Autotesting?

Autotest events consist of a number of short courses or “tests” made up usually of traffic cones. Competitors are given a defined route, which they complete against the clock, using forward and reverse gears. Time penalties are given for collisions with bollards or failing to complete the course correctly.

YMC-Centenary-Autotest-028-150x150

What type of  car?

Nothing special, in fact any car that is deemed safe by the organisers. There are people out there competing in cars they have bought for as little as 25 pounds.

YMC-Centenary-Autotest-058-150x150

Why Autotesting?

Autotesting is “grass roots” motorsport. Entry fees are cheap, events are held on private property, no special licence is required at inter-club level, no special car is needed. This type of motorsport is without any doubt, the best and safest way to learn car control, and a great introduction to other forms of motorsport.
