Forrestburn Results: Sunday 23 June 2019

Classes 5 and 6 - people and cars at Forrestburn
Not exactly the brilliant weather expected but mostly warm and certainly dry at Forrestburn today. Once again the hill defied the creation of a mass of new records except for one – Stuart Reid broke his own record from yesterday in Class B2 Modified Saloon Cars over 1400cc and up to 2000cc. And yet again, Gary Dickson set Best Time of Day in his Force RGC with a time of 40.78 seconds despite only managing one practice and one timed run.

The results are available to download here.

Forrestburn - Stephen Cooper channelling the Invisible Man
The weather was very kind to us at Forrestburn today. There was some sunshine and it was quite warm – most people were happy. Despite the great conditions, there was only one class record broken in the B2 Modified Saloon Cars over 1400cc and up to 2000cc class. Stuart Reid broke the record in his Peugeot 205. The new record is 47.73 seconds replacing David Adam’s record of 47.78 which has stood since August 2010.

Best Time of Day was set by Garry Dickson in a Force RGC – great to see Garry back at Forrestburn and he also gave an eloquent winners speech.

It may be even warmer and sunnier at Forrestburn tomorrow so we look forward to another great day. You can download the results from today here.
