Ringwood XXXII

– August 25, 2020 – The Ring –

Ringwood XXXII would close out the brief Scratch32 summer calendar with tight but clean open wheel racing. One new entry and nineteen returning entries would compete to be King of the Ring over four classes spanning 3 decades of Grand Prix competition. The official ‘Gosser’ pace car driven by Fritz Stroebl himself would lead each of four groups to their respective grid. BRM, Ferrari, Maserati, Honda, Porsche, Cooper, Matra, Lotus, Shadow, Brabham, Embassy Hill, Tyrrell and McLaren all fielded teams with the world’s top pilots including Fangio, Gurney, Surtees, Brabham, Hill and Stewart. Consistency and reliability would prove essential for success.
