BERNARD Brock, from Knutsford, secured a top 10 finish while racing an Elva 100 single-seater during the Oulton Park Gold Cup meeting at the weekend.

After qualifying ninth fastest for the Historic Formula Junior race for front engine machines, he had lost four places by the end of the first circuit.

However he recovered during the remaining laps to recapture the same position by the time the flag fell, claiming sixth spot in his class.
