Fords to the fore in Gerry Marshall Sprint

For immediate release: March 18, 2018

Pantelis Christoforou emerged victorious in the eventful Gerry Marshall Sprint race. The pole-sitter blasted his flat-fronted Ford Escort RS2000 into an early lead, only to see his advantage nullified after the safety car was deployed within half a lap. The race was a mere 15 minutes, but it took longer still to remove stricken cars before racing could resume safely. Four minutes were then added, with Christoforou making a cracking restart as Capri duo Graham ‘Skid’ Scabrorough and Mark Fowler squabbled behind him. Christoforou crossed the line 2.9-seconds ahead of the oversteering Scarborough with Fowler crossing the line only a fraction of a second in arrears.
