Getley Couldn?t Have Gone Any Faster in Class 2

Monday 18 July 2016

Ewen Getley gave it his all in his Bentley 3 Litre to record the fastest time in Class 2, and banished the memory of a poor final run at the 2015 event.

In the end, just half a second separated the top two drivers in the Pre-1940 Standard and Modified Sports Cars Unsupercharged over 1500cc class.

“I threw it up the hill as fast as I could against very stiff competition from Marcus Black. His Talbot-Lago is a later design and should be quicker. I had to be on top of my game to beat him,” said Ewen.

“I was never confident of the win. I only won by half a second and it isn’t over until it’s over. But I gave it my best shot and I’m really starting to like the course. It’s very technical and it’s hard to get right, he concluded.”

A class win is a significant improvement on last year’s performance, when Ewen was the fastest Bentley on every run except the final one and ended up fifth in the class.

After making a few improvements to the car, he was delighted to wipe three seconds off his 2015 time, finishing in a very respectable 49.36 seconds.
