Pole position at Thruxton

Apr 23rd, 2014

Driving Speedsport's 'Blue' Merlyn MK20, Michael O'Brien qualified on pole position for the Historic Formula Ford race at Thruxton this Easter and after two fairly eventful races finished on the podium in third position in both events. These results leave him second in the 2014 HFF Championship, with the next round to take place at Silverstone on May 17th.

Also competing in the Classic Racing car event, open to a variety of racing cars from pre 1971, Michael embarrassed his more powerful rivals in tricky wet conditions by grabbing pole position overall, and then went on to score his first race victory in dominant fashion.
