Post Goodwood 74th MM .. spectacular for the wrong reason
Lord March had organised a dry weekend albeit with a chill factor for the superb 74th Members Meeting which had the usual totally amazing selection of wonderful cars and some intense racing. Unusually the racing was interrupted by several racing incidents including this crash which fortunately resulted only in a broken collar bone for Lotus driver Stephen Bond.
There was not the usual ELVA presence apart from the early McLaren-Elva entries of Harms Winter (M1A), Calum Lockie (M1B), Xavier Micheron (M1A), Gareth Williams (M1B), Anthony Taylor (M1B), Roderick Smith (M1B), Chris Drake (M1B), John Bladon (M1A), Marcus Mussa (M1B) and Andrew Beaumont (M1B).
These extremely fast cars only achieved two laps due to a serious incident when the Lola-Chevrolet T70 Spyder went off circuit resulting in the driver Michael Smits being air-lifted to hospital where he remains in a stable condition.
The much anticipated race was abandoned and we of course wish Michael a speedy recovery. RAD
