Maserati charger Lukas Huni dominated the Madgwick Cup that featured sports cars with under two litre engines. The pole-sitter was out-dragged off the line by Patrick Blakeney-Edwards’s Frazer Nash Le Mans Replica but the Briton’s lead lasted barely two corners as the superior power of the Italian car soon told.
Huni proceeded to pull away in his sonorous Maserati A6GCS with Blakeney-Edwards still pushing hard in second. Same too for Nick Wigley who battled with Adrian Hall for third place, the latter’s Lotus 10 connecting with Wigley’s Tojeiro-Bristol into Madgwick at quarter-distance. Hall then fell off at St. Mary’s, leaving Wigley to reel-in Blakeney-Edwards.
With seven minutes of the 20-minute encounter left to run, he surged past. However, Blakeney-Edwards wasn’t about to give up, and, with three minutes to go, he impudently got ahead in four-abreast traffic out of Madgwick – and took time to salute his rival, only to lose out again barely seconds later. The order remained static to the flag, Huni having backed off in the closing stages.
