The historic flowing circuit of Dijon Prenois hosted the June round of the HGPCA series in the summer sun of Grand Prix de L’Age d’Or 2013.
The Maserati 250F of Klaus Lehr was repaired in time to make the Pre ’61 grid, finishing 2nd in Class.
Giorgio Marchi’s Cooper T53 was again raced by William Nuthall, who qualified 3rd. Close battles between the top three in both races resulted in two visits to the second step podium.
Stephen Bond had both the Lotus 18 and the Lister Bristol in Dijon. His ever increasing confidence in the 18 was rewarded with 2nd in Class in both the Pre 66 races. Stephen’s co-driver Keith Fell raced the Lister Bristol to 3 place overall in the concluding HGPCA Sportscar race on Sunday.
INRacing looks forward to returning Dijon in a few weeks!
Brands Hatch was the next stop on the HGPCA calendar where they were supporting the May Bank Holiday Masters Historic Festival May 2013.

William Nuthall qualified 4th of the evocative 33 car grid in Giorgio Marchi Cooper T53. William ran up in 2nd before a few problems and a big moment on some oil http://youtu.be/piooPA70gqo dropped him down to finish 5th and 3rd in class.
Alberto Scuro was out for the 1st time in his Cooper Bristol and joined the similar cars of Barry Wood, Steve Russell and Paul Grant. Paul Grant won the Class 5 battle and Barry Wood followed home to take 3rd in Class. Stephen Bond came through to a solid finish in the ex Moss Lotus 18.
