Lapping Up The Sunshine At Brands . .

Sharon's cooking and hospitality were amongst the best WSM moments of a baking hot week-end, with 208 retiring at half distance and 202 in exploration mode during the 40 minute pitstop race. Ex-WSM pilote John Pearson took a maiden pole position on Saturday morning in his Healey 3000, pipping the Parry-Williams 3000 by a whisker. WSM208's new engine is a torquefest but the qualifying time did'nt do it justice, while Peter Kappeller was coming to grips with another new circuit to the Swiss driver in WSM202.

The race drama ultimately unfolded without Pearson as a misfire plagued the 3000 after leading for 24 laps, and it was left to the Paul Kennelly Jaguar XK, Rob Cull MGA and Marc Gordon Lotus Elite to tussle for the podium placings. Kennelly was cool under pressure at the front, with Cull pinned to his bumper for lap after lap and Cull having mirrors full of Gordon ready to pounce. It took a puncture and off at Paddock on the penultimate lap to rob Kennelly, and Cull eeked out a winning margin to Gordon at the flag.

Young fans were out in force and one chalked up a race seat picture . .

Congrats to John Pearson on his pole lap. His cheerful admission that the car 'sent a postcard before sliding' does'nt alter the fact that he's found his mojo with this baby. A Chatham prepared car, various steeds including MGB, WSM Midget and single seaters have preceded, but John looks to have uncovered another 'perfect mate' . .

Catching up with the flourishing Equipe GTS series will see two WSM's on the Pre-63 grid on Saturday. Peter Kappeler with WSM202 (left) is at the Kent circuit for a test session on Friday afternoon, while 208 arrives on Friday evening. Qualifying at 10.35am precedes a 40 minute race straight after lunch at 1.25pm, and Lotus, Healey, Turner, Morgan and MGA are amongst the competition. Last time out at Silverstone MGLive, the Rawles 3000 and Equipe's own John Pearson topped qualifying, with the Rawles Healey taking the race win.at a quicker pace than the
