Bryan Bransom produced a scintillating recovery drive in the Modern Classics Series at Snetterton to secure fourth place after starting from 30th on the grid.

Qualifying problems left the Norwich racer towards the back of the field but from the moment his BMW M3 left the grid he superbly scythed through the pack to finally snatch fourth place in the final laps.

It was a good weekend for the Nicholas Randall/Fabio Randaccio Lotus team who claimed victory in the New Millennium Series and the Sports v Saloons before taking second place to Mark Halstead/Stuart McPherson in the Classic K Series.

Halstead and McPherson also triumphed in the Swinging Sixties with the Suffolk built Ginetta G4 leading all the way to outpace the potent Chevy Camaro of Ray Barrow while the busy Randall/Randaccio finished in fifth place.

Downham Market's Steve Owen triumphed in Group One of the Magnificent Sevens race with his bike engined Caterham 7 while Daniel Williams jumped two places on the final lap to secure second place.
