Hulme race car back on track Golden age: Grant Clearwater pushes Greg Thornton in a nail-biting finish at Hampton Downs. WORDS AND PHOTO: CRAIG JENNINGS Grant Clearwater of Kerikeri has been out on the track again at Hamp- ton Downs for the New Zealand Festival of Motorsport. This year's festival celebrates the life and legacy of Denny The Bear' Hulme, who is New Zealand's only Formula One champion. Clearwater, who recently took part in Sydney's Tasman Revival, competed in the Formula Junior and For- mula Three class in his green and gold former Denny Hulme Brabham BT16. A total restoration of the car has just been completed and this was the first time it had been raced. After initial technical issues in practice, Clear- water was able to prove himself in emphatic fashion. He started race one from the pit lane, quickly working through a field of 22 competitors to climb to eighth place by lap two. By the end of lap four Grant was in second pos- ition and an exhilarating battle for the lead took place with British driver Greg Thornton. The two passed the chequered flaginwhatwastobea photo finish, resulting in the officials judging them to be in equal first place. Clearwater had good results in the weekend's remaining races, despite racing with a faster class of cars, finishing fifth, 10th and fifth in races two, three and four respectively. His next appearance with this car will be at the Leadfoot Festival at the end of March.
