Jim's Race results from the Spring Classic at Mont-Tremblant Circuit in Canada

Following on from the last Blog on Jim Biscoe returning his newly acquired Unipower GT to the circuits, Jim kindly supplied me with the Race results from the three Spring Classic Vintage races held over the weekend of the 25th-26th May 2024 at the Mont-Temblant Circuit near Quebec.

The races entered were all for the Vintage Class, held over 12-laps for the first two races and the last race being a 15-lapper. Competition in the races came from a wide variety of cars ranging from a Lotus 23B, Chevrolet Corvette's, MGB's, Ford Mustang's and a Porsche 911 with the oldest being the 1963 Lotus 23B and the youngest a 1980 Chevrolet Corvette. Jim's 1967 Unipower GT at 1275cc was the smallest capacity engine on the grid with the exception perhaps the lone Triumph Spitfire from 1966, maybe still running the 1147cc engine fitted in period, although likely to have been enlarged to 1300cc ?.

Jim Qualified 13th out of 21 entrants on the Saturday morning followed by a 20th place in the first 12-lap race in the afternoon out of 22 entrants.

Early on Sunday morning, Jim improved his performance to finish 14th from a field of 21 entrants in the 12-lap race. The final race of the weekend saw Jim take 15th place from a field of 20 entrants. In all races, all entrants finished the races.

So all credit to Jim who had never driven the car before and never a Unipower GT, improving his lap times in race conditions as he got to grips with its very different driving style from his usual Mini's.

A great start to his first time out in his Unipower GT and we wish him every success in the future where I'm sure we'll see Jim putting in some giant killing drives !.
