David Methley Takes the Justin Haler Trophy

David Methley was virtually unstoppable as the Historic Formula 3 Championship headed to the glorious Cadwell Park track in Lincolnshire for a double-header weekend. The Merlyn Mk14A racer duly claimed the Justin Haler Trophy, presented in memory of the period Formula 3 journalist.

Methley’s pace around the challenging track was too much for his rivals and he romped to an impressive double victory at the annual Wolds Trophy Meeting.

Methley led all but the first lap of the opening race and quickly took his Merlyn past the Brabham BT21 of Peter Thompson. From there on, Methley was in a league of his own in both races.

Thompson later retired from Saturday’s race with concerns about engine temperature and Ian Bankhurst (Alexis) bumped the barriers at Hall Bends and pitted for a check, before carrying on when his crew could find nothing amiss.

Jim Blockley (Brabham BT21B) moved up to claim second place and Leif Bosson (BT28) was classified third once the BT21B of Jim Timms was excluded from the results for being under weight.

While Methley romped away, Bosson’s engine expired in Sunday’s race. Meanwhile, Bankhurst was on a charge and raced from ninth on the grid to finish second ahead of Blockley, who completed the podium. Thompson came through the field to challenge Blockley, but had a grassy moment at Charlie’s and settled for fourth. Timms and Mauro Poponcini (Cooper T76) swopped places several times in an entertaining battle for fifth before Timms made sure of the position.
