Toyota Sprint Series 2011: Barkston Heath

convoy

Barkston Heath is an RAF airfield, currently operating as a training facility in conjunction with Cranwell, and during the post-war and Cold War era was a home to the Bloodhound surface to air missile systems.    A small, compact, twisty course which can be run in both directions remains a popular event each year, and has repeatedly shown that a nimble car, driven by a skilled and precise driver will be rewarded by a fast time, moreso than extra horsepower.

This years event was given an added twist – the course would be run both directions, and the results would be an aggregate of their times in both directions

The friendly rivalry between rally ace Jonny Milner and circuit specialist Adrian Smith continued, with Smith having the upper hand at lunchtime, but a demon run in the afternoon meant that neither driver would know who had won until the prize giving ceremony.   This time it was Adrian Smith and his gen7 Celica GT4X which took home the biggest silverware.

Very close and friendly competition was seen in all the lower classes as usual.
