Joy Retains Class 12 Record with Improved Time

Tuesday 19 July 2016

Peter Joy was delighted to repeat his Class 12 win of last year with an even better time.

Despite last year’s win, he wasn’t confident of another victory in the Pre 1961 Sports and Sports Racing Cars up to 2200cc class this year, as he faced some tough competition from two Cooper Monacos, which took second and third places and David Wylie, in fourth place in the Austin Healey Speedwell Sprite.

“I didn’t expect to win because the Coopers are much more powerful and are dedicated racing cars, rather than converted road cars like my Elite and David’s Sprite.”

Peter won the class in 44.03, knocking more than two seconds off his 2015 time of 46.48, and beating Justin Maeers in his Cooper Monaco by just half a second.

Peter has owned his 1959 Lotus Elite for more than 20 years, using it in countless historic rallies during that time. The car started life as a hill climb car and has been used in competition ever since.
