Declan Jones was the class of the Jack Fairman Cup field as he romped to victory in the AMOC opener at Oulton Park in a Turner Climax.
A slipping clutch made it tougher for the former Ginetta racer. He was swamped at the start from pole position as Rob Newall took the lead in his Jaguar XK120.
Jones fell back to fifth by the first corner, but he made a rapid recovery to run second by the end of lap one. The next time around he crossed the line in the lead.
A dominant 29-second victory would be the reward for ‘Tatty Turner’, the name given to the diminutive car in its heyday for famously “carrying taped-up battle scars.”
