27th June 1993, Peterborough, British Championship
By Anne Sayell from Short Circuit magazine

The last minute re-location of the British Championship event on 27 June to Alwalton Raceway, Peterborough proved very successful with the seasons first 20 car field. No less than three newcomers joined the grid for the 35 lap race in blazing sun.

Peter Hunt led the race away with Ron Elliott taking up the read 4 laps in, albeit briefly before John Calladine took up the running on lap 7 pulling out a substantial lead. However defending champion Harry Sayell had made up no less than 11 places in 7 laps to move into third place on lap 8 with Loseby, Haynes and Weston all picking their way steadily through the field from the red grade.

Three laps later Sayell was able to challenge but despite eventually passing Calladine on lap 14 to take the lead Sayell was not pulling away from the Arrow and Calladine almost regained the lead when backmarker Pashley drifted wide as Sayell passed. Lapping in around 17 seconds, these two pulled almost half a lap clear whist Haynes moved into third with Ricketts giving chase until engine trouble forced him to join several other retirees. The result looked clear until Calladine drifted just too wide on lap 26 throwing away a safe second as he collided with the armco. This left Haynes some half a lap back with a fierce battle between Weston and Loseby unresolved until Weston's experience won over just 5 laps from the end. So a storming Sayell held onto the British crown with the other VW second, well down but the only car on the same lap as Sayell, Weston finished a good third, Loseby fourth, newcomer Staniford 5th in his first race and Pashley 6th. The whole 35 lap event taking just 10 minutes 38 seconds.

Just one supporting race saw Gary Bonner in excellent form leading for 13 of the 201aps but hecould not hold out the two VW's and Sayell and Haynes took up first and second on laps 16 and 17 respectively. Weston clocking up more points with a fourth and Pashley keeping up the Dastle hopes in 5th, Retchless 6th.
