The chairman of the Potters Bar-based Green Belt Motor Club has finished a successful season.
Malcolm Wise has been racing his Ford Escort Cosworth in the Modified Ford Series, open to 10-year-old Ford saloon cars and consisting of eight events held at three circuits, Cadwell Park in Lincolnshire, Snetterton near Norwich and Brands Hatch in Kent.
And in his white and yellow Chandu Tailor & Son sponsored car, which has over 500 horsepower, Wise notched up two wins and three third places in the fiercely contested class for cars with turbocharged engines.
Consistency was the key to his success. He scored points in all eight races whereas his arch rival Dave Cockell, in a similar but slightly more powerful Escort, finished ahead of him in only half of the races, failing to score in the others.
Apart from being a super-fast racing driver Wise, does most of his own car preparation including putting together its ultra-powerful turbocharged engine.
