With a grid of 20 cars all with roughly equal power outputs and the same tyres, close racing is virtually guaranteed with Historic Formula Ford. The key differentiators being set up and that balance between confidence and capability. Tiff Needell has re-entered the series in his race winning Lotus 69 from 1972. From lights out, it was the pack of young bloods; Michael O’Brian, Max Bartell, in Merlyn’s Benn Simms Jomo JMR7 and Tiff Needell (not so young blood) storming away. When the chequered flag dropped, Tiff was awarded the win with Benn Second and Michael third.
