MALLOCK 50th ANNIVERSARY - 26th August 2008

Saturday and Sunday, 23rd and 24th August saw the 750 Motor Club hosting the Mallock 50th Anniversary celebrations. The event included a display and parade of Mallock U2 cars from the 1950ís through to the current day and two races, a scratch race on Saturday, where in conventional style the fastest cars qualified at the front and raced as normal and on Sunday a handicap race where the earlier cars started first and the faster and more modern cars flagged off at intervals.

The weekend was a huge success with 46 cars in the parade and 37 qualifying for the races. Hundreds of Mallock enthusiasts, which include many individuals that have been an important influence in both Michaels and Mallocks development and success over the years enjoyed the celebratory atmosphere which included a BBQ and party on Saturday evening.

Qualifying for the scratch race saw Michael Mallock claim pole position in a time of 57.72, some 0.5 seconds below the class record in the Mallock U2 Mk 18, whilst Ray Mallock headed the Single Seater class in the Formula Ford Mk 9. The scratch race was a thrilling event, when a combination of gear box selection glitches and yellow flags dropped Michael to 9 seconds behind the lead car, however, a determined fight back and a great move into Becketts got him into the lead with just over a lap to go and went on to claim a very appropriate Mallock family win. Ray had an enjoyable race to win the single seater class.

Sundays handicap event meant even more overtaking as a huge variety of cars took turns at the front. Eventually it was the RML built P20, the car that took Michael to the 2000 National Supersports Championship that took the honours, with Michael battling through to take 3rd place, the finish of a remarkable and enjoyable weekend.
