A Triumphant Weekend at Paul Ricard 2019

The first weekend of the 2019 season kicked off in great style at the wonderful circuit of Paul Ricard.

The fast F1 circuit although challenging, proved no match to the skills of Julian Thomas and Calum Lockie in their 1964 Ford Falcon.
The first race of the day was a thrilling battle between the two Falcons driven by Julian Thomas and Jason Minshaw along with Jake Hill's Mustang all vying for the top 3 places, thus culminating in an outstanding win for Julian and Calum Lockie.


Equally challenging was the Gentleman Drivers race which was a combined grid with the NKHTGT meaning a starting grid of 34 cars ranging from MGBs to Cobras with both groups having different pit stop and finishing times, leading to a sometimes confusing race.

Nils Frederick Nyblaeus and Jeremy Welch in the Healey 3000 YOP 999, confidently moved through a very mixed grid from position 27, chasing Keith Ahlers and Billy Bellinger in their Morgan +4 through the 90 minute race, finally pipping them to the P7 and a class win 8 minutes from the end of the race. In addition to a class win Nils and Jeremy also came third in the over 3Ltr category behind a Cobra and an Elan.
