Capris took first second and third at this Monday's fifth round of the Tricentrol British Saloon Car Championship, Vince Woodman taking the honors for the second time in a row at the Hampshire circuit.
The race, run in scorching heat, was dogged by tire problems. Neither Dunlop nor Avon seemed to be producing the tire needed to withstand the heat and the abrasive surface and still give good grip. Class winners inevitably included Win Percy (Class C) and Richard Longman (Class D) while Hamish Irvine proved yet again that the Dolomite is not obsolete by taking Class B. (MN)
