Jack Parker claimed two wins and almost made it a hat-trick before being pipped to the post in the last race of the weekend by multiple champion John Mickel.

Boasting arguably the biggest grids of the weekend, the Classic Touring Car Racing club descended on Cadwell Park with a whole host of different championships.

In the Classic 2CV Racing Championship, defending champion Lien Davies continued his expert defence of his title with another victory whilst Brian Heerey prevented him from making it a dominant double.

Joe Spencer proved to be the man to beat in the CNC Heads Sports/Saloon Car Championship once again too.With a 28-car strong grid competing, the former champion bagged both wins around the undulating Cadwell layout in his Stuart Taylor Locosaki 1400.

The APL Health Caterham Graduates Championship produced some spellbinding action too with winners aplenty from the multi-class series. In the Classic category, Graeme Smith and Matthew Willoughby were the big winners whilst Toby Briant maintained his fine start to the season with a brace of winners in the Super class.
