24th/25th July - Ashworth's Win And Lambert's Spoils . .

The 'Equipe' GTS foray west to Pembrey and the VSCC meeting produced close racing and a peek at some fascinating pre-war engineering courtesy of the Richard Seaman Memorial event -

Race One - Brian Lambert and Mike Harris got the MGB jump on everyone, but a slice of luck for the Mark Ashworth TVR 1800S appeared when Keith Page seemingly missed a gear out of Hatchets. This momentarily held the pack and gave Ashworth the opportunity to bolt and chase down the Lambert/Harris battle. He cleared them both in good order and took a lead he would not relinquish, looking comfortable on a margin to Harris of less than a second at the flag. Pete Foster led the chasing throng, and WSM interest centred on Clive Cocks bringing home the bacon in 10th.

Race Two - Ashworth's day was done as the car suffered brake failure in the paddock shortly before the start, and with the demise of leader Harris with half shaft failure, Lambert strolled off with the result. Foster added another podium to a long list, and series regular John Yea was rewarded with third place. The MGB's of father and son Peter and Stephen Bolderson finished both races, with the younger generation taking the family spoils on each occasion, while Lambert took aggregate honours for the week-end.
