Mallock Signs-off DB4 Account in Style - 2nd July 2006

Michael Mallock competed in his final races in the Marshplant Aston Martin DB4 at Silverstone this weekend, taking home another brace of trophies. The Aston Martin Owners Club Classic race saw Michael take pole position from Charlie Kemp by 9 tenths of a second on the short 'National' layout of the Northamptonshire circuit, with the rest of the pack almost a second further back. A lightning start saw Mallock take a comfortable lead into the first corner, pulling out over a second a lap in the opening stages before backing off to save the tyres for the next race taking a comfortable win by over 5 seconds. The Intermarque race was always going to be a bigger challenge, with Michael facing stiff opposition once again from Brian Robinsons more modern Porsche 993RS. A busy qualifying session saw Michael battling to get a clear lap before pulling into the pits to save his tyres for the race, having done only the bare minimum of laps he would be start the race in third position. Another flying start saw Mallock take second into Copse corner, behind Boysie Thurtles powerful Chevrolet Camaro. The run to Brooklands saw the Porsche outbrake Michael, with the pair side by side through the corner Mallock took the wide line into Luffield and charged up the inside toward the exit as Robinson slid wide, the traction of the Porsche proved too much to compete with and Mallock had to settle into third. The lead three pulled away from the following pack with Michael about 2 seconds behind the leaders. Over the next few laps the Porsche and Chevrolet battled for the lead with Michael creeping up on their tail until a yellow flag from the exit of Luffield to the entry to copse saw Michael stuck the length of the circuit behind a back marker. Having lost touch with the leaders Mallock concentrated on keeping the gap behind comfortable. Lap 10 saw the retirement of Thurtles Camaro, promoting Michael to second place, where he would finish the race taking the Class win. Silverstone marks the last outoing for this year in the DB4, with Marshplant concentrating now on their new DB7s, currently being built. Michael will be competing in these upon their completion, in both AMOC events and a National GT Championship.
