Sprint Record at Blyton Park
This weekend saw Blyton Park host the Westfield Sports Car Cub organised two day sprint event. With over 100 competitors battling it out in their respective classes, competition was always going to be close. The current sprint circuit record was held by Jonathan Toulmin, who set a time of 63.71 seconds back in June in a Force PT 1.6. Our new record holder is Steve Miles who piloted his 2 litre Van Diemen RF96mm12 to the new course record of 59.62 seconds averaging almost 84mph over the lap. Steve had to be at his best because pushing him all the way was Glyn Sketchley in his Force PT 1500 who recorded a time of 59.70 seconds. The two battled it out throughout the day lowering the course record no less than four times with just 8 hundredths of a second separating them by the end of the day.
