2014 Counties Classic Series – Final – Wrap-up by Paul (DINK) Madden
Devlin Hill, winner of the Porter Group Counties Classic Series, takes home the $1,500 travel voucher, along with the NonStop Commentary Driver of the Series trophy. Devlin finished on equal points to Mike Small, but on a count back, took the title. Congratulation to both, I enjoyed very much doing the commentary on the series. And commiserations to Jamie McKinstry, whose car let him down today. Marcus Runciman won the Junior Series, his second title in a row; well done young man.

“My current racing ambition is to equal Ian Foster’s 6 Woodhill 100 Victories. If I can get level with Ian I’ll be happy.” says Tony.

The Trophy wall only has the 1st place victories. “There’s no space for the minor place trophies. If I get a second or a third, I give them to Gary, my crew chief, to look after”.

Tony’s current car is the mid-mounted, LS2 V8, Speed Sequential Transaxle, A-Arm, Single Seat BSL Terra that Tony helped design. “This is the best race car so far. It handles fantastic, the gearbox reacts fast, Its point and shoot.” says Tony.
