Neat and tidy, was pleased to start one place ahead of Alex
Bit of a mixed bag. My first night racing with a manual clutch and it made quite a difference. Had some excellent scraps with Dan
until I made a crazy lunge into the first right hander, knocking into him (really sorry, Dan) and letting Butler
through. Oooooh how I would later regret that moment. Trundled home 8th.Race 2
Awesome race. Managed to pick my way through the pack and work my way up the field (passing the reigning champ Flavoury
along the way
) and found myself in second a few seconds behind Tommy
. I set about chasing him but couldn't get near. In the latter stages Dan
had his revenge and pinched 2nd place from me. Still, a welcome podium and with Alex
down in 10th, things were looking interesting...Race 3
Some frantic number crunching suggested Alex
and I were about equal on points meaning a one race shoot-out. I made a great start I think I was in the top three coming out of turn one. Sadly I was on the outside, where a red and while car speared into me*, wrecking my engine. Game over. Came home 12th whilst Alex
went on to score points, leaving me 2 points down in the final standings.
Bit of a kick in the teeth that one! I'm pretty sure I could have taken two points from that race! Hey-ho, thats racing.
Great driving all round, well done to everybody for another great night.*On the night I said I thought it was Tommo, but quite honestly I don't know. Haven't checked the replay yet.
