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.
