Autosport began producing its winners’ table last week now that two months of racing has taken place since club motorsport restarted in England. Overall and class triumphs both count towards the total, provided a class is defined by car characteristics and there were at least six starters within the division.
While Historic Formula Ford and Formula Junior driver Cam Jackson continues to lead the way, also on the move was Ben Short, the Mazda MX-5 racer taking two victories in the 750 Motor Club’s MX-5 Cup to leap up from seventh to third place.
Caterham driver Harry Senior was another to boost his total with a double win at Silverstone in the Caterham Graduates SigMax contest to take his tally to five and climb 23 spots to sixth.
Calum Lockie’s triumph in a Ford Falcon at the Brands Hatch Masters Historic Festival took him up a place to seventh, while entering the top 10 was Castle Combe Formula Ford 1600 victor Oliver White.

Steve McDermid’s unbeaten start to the MG Owners’ Club season also sent him flying up the rankings from 43rd to 11th place as he took another two wins at Combe.
Two places behind him is last year’s table-topper Gary Prebble. The Wiltshire circuit ace was not in action at Combe, instead competing in the Pre-03 Touring Cars category at Donington Park, where he took an overall and a class win in his Honda Civic.

All car races in UK and Ireland are included except qualification/repechage, consolation and handicap races. No races in other countries.
Class wins are only counted when there are at least six starters in the class. Only classes divided by car characteristics are included. Classes divided by driver characteristics such as ability, professional status, age, experience (for example rookie or Pro-Am classes) are not included.
Where there is a tie, overall wins take precedence. Where there is still a tie, average grid size for a driver’s wins determines the order.
