WITH competitive track action at Oulton Park suspended for the last few months, things got back under way on Saturday with ‘Time Attack’, writes Ste McNorton.

This annual event sees cars/drivers compete against the clock to see who can achieve the fastest time round the Cheshire circuit. This, the first event back since lockdown, would also see paying spectators allowed into the circuit for the first time this year.

With action commencing at the usual 9am, cars are dived into categories from the mildly modified hatchback all the way up to the fire-belching super modified cars

The drivers are given the morning to do their warm up and practice sessions before fully attacking the track in the afternoon when they go into qualifying. The final sessions see the drivers race against the clock for the points to see who takes the top step of the position in each class.

In the Pro Extremes, it was 37 Bruce Winfield in his stunning Mitsubishi Evo IX who stood on the top step of the podium in this class with the fastest time of 1:23:636 around the Cheshire circuit.

The Pro 2WD Class saw the beautiful Seat Leon Cupra TCR of 126 Marc Kemp take first place in a great time of 1:29:772.

In the GT, Sportscar and Prototype Class, 35 Mike Jenvey scorched around the track almost glued to the tarmac in a great time of 1:21:696, which was the overall fastest time of the day.

And finally, the Club Pro's class saw the Mitsubishi Evo VII of 22 Matt Newing taking the first place trophy.

Action at Oulton Park continues on the July 18 when the TCR Series comes to town.
