PUNCTURE ROBS MICHAEL OF 2017 HFF CHAMPIONSHIP
Michael lost this year’s Historic Formula Ford Championship by a single point after 7 months of hard battling.
Everything went according to plan – Michael got pole position at Silverstone, won the first race after a superb seven-car battle for the lead and just needed a top three finish in race two to secure the championship. He was driving well, leading or in the top three the whole time until his handling started to go and he dropped back as he had a left rear puncture and he had to stop on the final lap!
On corrected scores, Michael had 236 points, just one less than the winner Richard Tarling. It was a sad finish to a brilliant season. However, we can be very proud of what Michael has achieved and his driving throughout the season – he never finished lower than fourth and won the two most prestigious races at the Silverstone Classic.
