Toyo Tyres/ Jaguar Saloon & GT Championship - Round 3 Castle Combe

Castle Combe was host to round 3 of the championship, 21 big Cats joined us at what was a fine but very hot day unlike rounds 1 & 2 at Snetterton in April.

In a change of procedure, this was scheduled as a 30 minute race rather than the usual 20 minutes, necessitating some drivers having to install larger fuel tanks.

 Notable absentee was championship stalwart Adam Powderham who, due to business commitments, missed his first race in 6 years but attended as a spectator. Having missed the first 2 rounds David Howard (XJ12), Richard Crossley, Richard Coppock (XJSs) & Guy Connew (XJ6) rejoined the Championship. After a long period working in the USA, Richard Knott dusted off his XJS but experienced gearbox problems during testing. This necessitated a rush job, ably assisted by Sam Clarke, to get the car ready for the race.
