Bill and Cheryl Baldwin drove their beautiful dark green steel bodied 803 (30/066) from Rochester, NY (about 450 miles) to win the Best Presented Turner award.

The Turner race was run as a Persuit (handicap) race due to the difference in performance between the VSCCA and SVRA cars.  This proved to be very successfull, results as follows:

1st Len Picton
2nd John Master
3rd Keith Burnett

Keith Burnett was second overall in the Group1 Feature race and won his class and the SVRA Gr1 (Up to 1300cc) championship for 2003  In addition, much to his surprise he was awarded the Amateur Mechanic of the Year award!  

Quite a weekend!!
