Hadfield And Medeiros Reign Supreme In Classic Ff1600
The pair of Classic Formula Ford 1600 races at Silverstone on Sunday lived up to their namesake, with two encounters that will live long in the memory.
A bumper 33-car field meant it was anyone’s game, and the one with the advantage first off was series returnee Adriano Medeiros.
Despite qualifying his Van Diemen RF80 on pole, a broken exhaust connection meant he had to retire on the second lap.
Simon Hadfield in a Titan Mk4 and Mike Gardner (Crossle 30/32F) were left scrapping for the spoils with Scott Mansell (Crossle 35F).
The lead changed hands several times, but it was the decisive move by Hadfield at the back of the Grand Prix layout which sealed the deal.
The second encounter was red flagged after just two corners following a heavy roll for Rick Morris, and while the restarted race was only 18 minutes long, Medeiros didn’t need a second excuse to claim victory from 31st.
