First Round of the SACC Knockhill Autosolo 

Glenrothes Motor Sport Club ran the first round of the SACC Autosolo series at Knockhill on Sunday 20th March, attracting a very encouraging entry of 25. 23 cars started the event.

There was a wide selection of cars competing including a classic Mini, a Smart Car, a Clan Crusader, a MG Midget, a BMW 323, a Seat Ibiza, a Fiesta ST, Ford Focus, VW Golf VR6, Caterham Roadster, a selection of Lotus Elise and Exige, a handful of Maxda Mx5's and last but not least a Skoda Superb.

Class 1 was very hotly contested and David Finlay's Seat emerged the victor by only 2 seconds from Jim Wilson's Mini after nearly 8 minutes of competition.

Grainger Robertson in the Fiesta was the clear winner in class 3 from the surprising Skoda of Paul Hughes and the 3 wheeling Golf of Gavin Alexander, James Wilson found that having a welded diff in a BMW is a bit of a handful.

The largest entry was in class 4 and Michael Scibber as in his 280bhp Lotus was closely matching times with Ryan Gardiner in his Turbocharged Mazda MX5 until Ryan clipped a cone finishing second by 3.3 seconds.

Archie Simmonds in his MG was trying everything he could to catch the more modern sports cars but needed a few more horses under the bonnet. Scott Clements did a great job entertaining the crowds with his power slides and astronomical revs in his Clan.

Within class 4 the times between the Mazdas and the Lotuses were very evenly matched and all the drivers enjoyed the friendly rivalry.

Thanks to everyone's efforts the event was a great success and an encouraging start to the series.

What the event did prove was that you can enjoy grass roots motorsport in your road car at very little expense and no damage to the car, Michael Scibberas took fastest time of the day in his first ever motorsport event, in fact 75% of the entry had never competed before, and going by the feedback on the day this won't be their last.

Just a reminder that the Andy Wilson Memorial Autotest is being held on Sun. April 10th at Knockhill the event has a conventional Autotest for the main trophy, a PCA where you must carry a passenger and an all forward Autotest, regs and entry form can be found on the SACC website or the Glenrothes website.
