Motorsport has restarted in Cumbria after Government restrictions were eased as part of the coronavirus roadmap.
The first event to be held under Motorsport UK’s COVID regulations was Wigton Motor Club’s Autosolo held at Maryport Business Park on Sunday.
Organisers say there was great enthusiasm for the restart with the club not holding a competitive event since last August with a good turnout of competitors and marshals.
The whole event was held in line with COVID-19 regulations.
Thirteen tests were run during the day with the winner getting more than fifteen minutes of test time.
It was a close-fought event with Peter Wright winning in his Mini seven seconds in front of second-placed Chris Hunter (MX5) who finished just a second up on Craig Stamper (Saxo) and Tot Dixon (Mini) a further second down.
Fiona Tyson was first lady and Jack Long first junior.
The next event is an autotest/PCA on May 16.
This Sunday is Drive It Day. However, with the current restrictions, there will not be the usual gathering at Dalemain.
Nevertheless, owners of classic and vintage vehicles are encouraged to take them out for a drive.
