Congratulations to the 2017 Lewis Car Club Autotest Champion, Martin Palmer!

 

Running a close second is Ross Maciver, followed by Ian Norman Campbell.

 

Class honours, Martin takes the Class 2 Road Legal Production Car title, with Ross getting the Class 4 Economy win.

 

Of particular interest is the very different cars used; Martin in the mid-engine MGF Trophy (the only Class 2 entry this year), Ross in the Honda Accord(ian) and a Lexus or BMW drift weapon for Ian Norman.

 

The points gap doesn’t fully reflect just how close the times were throughout the year, particularly between the top 3 drivers; track designs were a bit of a mixture, alternating between open/flowing and very technical to give a fair but varied challenge to driver and machine.

 

 
It would be great to see more people giving Autotesting a go in 2018!

 

Car sharing helps split the costs and makes for a very entertaining competition between teammates, as I’m sure this year’s entrants would agree!

 

 

And finally, a thank you to Ian and Dave for the assistance in running this year’s championship events.
