Thanks @PaulYDP for a hand today...

turned out challenging enough day. 1 lap in qualy with a misfire. Same in first race... pulled into pits twice !!!! In first race with miss fire (lead coming off coil pack) then thankfully sorted for 2nd race and won.

so nice to be on track again... very appreciative of all officials& Marshall’s giving their time so we can get out to play 🤘

I had the pleasure of running this today:

1,2,3 in quali for the stable mates:

1st in class for the blue car in both races (Outright win in race 1). Just needed fuel all day.

Not all plain sailing though, I had to put a set of cam followers in the yellow car after quali (pinto engine - heel/pad breaking up on race followers). Stuck a set of standard ones in and it was running well for race 1.

Green car was leading race 1 but went wide and into barriers on exit of Fisherman’s.
Damage to the front splitter/rad support and bodywork. Needs a steering arm and maybe a bottom wishbone but rack and chassis fine so could be worse.

Pulled the ‘cow catcher’ frame off the front which was folded underneath and took the bent radiator off to make it easier to load onto the trailer.
Half of the front bodywork came back to our garage so we broke out the Crosslé badge and the racing number and dumped the rest.

Great to see the sun out and the paddock busy!

Any time, was great just to get a run down and be about the paddock again! Eventful day but we got there!
