Campfield wins Walter Hayes
Adrian Campfield has reunited with his 2008 UKFFC team, Kevin Mills Racing and the Australian built Spectrum chassis, to take out the Walter Hayes Trophy for FF1600 cars at Silverstone last weekend.
‘That is mega!’ beamed an obviously elated Kevin Mills. ‘With almost 100 entries, the Walter Hayes has become the most important event on the FF1600 calendar; more than double the cars they get at the Festival. Congratulations to Adrian on a job well done. I’ve already spoken to Mike Borland (Spectrum designer and constructor), who called me from Australia not long after the results were published to say well done. It’s tremendous that the factory pays attention to what we are doing,’ he said.
‘A fantastic result for Adrian, Kevin and our Spectrum chassis,’ is how Borland described the win. ‘You would struggle to find anyone that works harder than Kev and this is a thoroughly well deserved result for his team. I hope he gets the recognition he deserves and that 2012 will be even bigger and better for Kevin Mills Racing,’ Mike added.
Equally fast, but not so fortunate was the Wiltshire College Motorsport Spectrum entry of Ben Norton. The Spectrum with Norton at the wheel was quick all weekend, but a DNF in an early heat race had him on the back foot. Ben worked his way back to 8th in the final, including a race win and fastest lap in a heat. The Spectrums were the cars to beat at Silverstone and Norton showed that he could have had a real battle with Adrian in the final.
