Towcester’s Michael Moyers was forced out of the Castle Combe Carnival when his Kevin Mills Racing Spectrum was involved in a mid-race collision with 2014 Castle Combe FF1600 champion, Adam Higgins, write Colin and James Beckett.
Making his first race appearance since April, Moyers was using the Castle Combe Carnival as preparation for the Walter Hayes Trophy at Silverstone that takes place in just three weeks time.
Qualifying took place in treacherous conditions, but the track was dry and the sun shining for the Carnival race. After a good start, Moyers was lapping in the leading pack before finding himself racing side-by-side with Higgins when their cars clashed. Higgins was able to continue, but Moyers’ Spectrum suffered damage and he was forced to pull to the pits at the end of the lap.
He said afterwards: “I felt really good and for my first trip to Castle Combe think I did a solid job for the team. I was sorry I had to retire from the race but it has certainly helped me sharpen my driving and I am now looking forward to the Walter Hayes Trophy. That is the race I want to win.”
