Yet again, we had perfect weather.
Some of our regulars were on holiday but those who were there had loads of track time. It was great to see Peter Hazlett back after depositing the guts of his engine onto the Tarmac during our July date. Malcolm Bruce also got his Celica back out after his trials with tyres in July. Both were going well. Sadly, Nad brought his TVR back out and it did the same damage to the engine on the first session as it did in July. Back to the drawing board!
Stewarty brought his racing Clio out and assures us that he will be racing at the next race. We wait to see, Tony Traub used the day to sort out some issues with his racing Integra.
Both Naoise Enright (Mazda MX6) and Barry Chambers (Honda Accord) ran all day without problems and did a phenomenal number of laps. Unfortunately Scott Robinson’s Astra went out on the first session with brake problems.
Nicholas Wood was a welcome returnee and after using the pre-lunch sessions to re-acquaint himself, was well up to speed in the latter half of the day. Garry Hannah proved that an Evo 7 can be quick within the noise limits.
Thanks to Fel and her marshals who had a testing day with dodgy radios (and a crazy little blue car)
****Please note: Our next date is changed to Sunday 5th September****
