    An unbelievably lucky escape for Amanda Whitaker in the Historic Formula Ford 1600 Championship at Mallory Park. After a lap 1 coming together, not of her making, with championship leader Westie Mitchell, Amanda's nose cone, on her Peter Hampshire designed Elden Mk8, becomes dislodged, obscuring her forward vision.

    Westie has gone off badly at the exit of Gerards Bend, and as the leaders complete lap 1, race control throw a red flag to stop the race, only a second or two before the pack arrived at full tilt to start lap 2.

    As it was, unsighted, and with miliseconds to react to the red flag, Amanda collides with the car in front, and is launched into a terrifying series of sommersaults and barrel rolls along the start finish straight. That she walks away, shaken and bruised, but thankfully with no broken bones, is a testament to the strength of her car, even with 39 year old design technology.

    After initial concern for Westie Mitchell, he too was also not too badly hurt in the race stopping incident, suffering a broken wrist and some vertebrae damage. Best wishes for a speedy recovery.

    Amanda Whitaker's onboard video from HSCC Historic Formula Ford 1600 race on the Brands Hatch Grand Prix circuit. Amanda wins the race in her Elden Mk 8 JUST from Westie Mitchell!

    Amanda qualified 4th - she was on provisional pole position but an engine problem relegated her. Her Amaron racing team changed the engine and got her onto the grid with just moments to spare.

    She makes a good start to grab the lead into Druids hairpin. Westie (red Merlin) slots into 2nd position but can't make any impression on Amanda for the first half of the race. However, he gradually closes the gap & goes past when Amanda's car jumps out of gear as she hits a kerb (Graham Hill bend). However, Amanda retaliates at Paddock Hill bend the following lap and despite Westie trying hard to get back past, Amanda holds on to win by just one tenth of a second.

    The pair are seperated by just 4 points in the championship (after dropped round) at time of writing.

    This footage of the ENTIRE HSCC Formula Ford RACE from Silverstone onboard with Britain's fastest & most succesful female racing driver Amanda Whitaker. Amanda qualifies 3rd in a 33 car grid. She has handling & braking problems caused by a loose left rear hub, but she puts on a good display to lead the race for a time and then finish 2nd. She also has an engine problem towards the end of the race, caused by a problem with the carburettor. The yellow car on Pole Position is current British Formula Ford Champion Callum Macleod. Notice just after Amanda takes 2nd place from Westie Mitchell (the red car) that Callum spins out of the lead at Becketts (the 3rd corner). Hence why he comes past for a 2nd time!
