Brands Hatch GP CircuitPosted:
Arrival @ Brands GP on Saturday Morning was a very Wet and Cold affair.......having only done the GP Circuit once before about 4 Yrs ago in my old E36 2.8 TrackCar i realistically knew in Qualifying it would be a case of just to "reccy" the Track and do my best in the slippery conditions.
The hope was by 1st Race at 14:30 it would be somewhat dryer.
Qualifying went well and pushing on at the last Lap i found the Limit of the Car and a Spin sideways @ Graham Hill Bend saw me more or less staying on the Tarmac !!
1st Race was pretty much dry as planned, TTRS were away on Lights out with the BMW E30s away and off from the Start 20 Secs later...... 1st Corner 2 TTRS guys had already come off into the Gravel, so Safety Car was deployed ....so then we had a Rolling Start at the Line.... had a good 1-2 Laps with the Gap to Rob Gamble staying about same until he and another E30 just got past Neil Harris in the Quick Fiesta on a Corner , Neil is a new guy to Racing just like Me so i saw this as on opportunity to have a good Race and I think Neil upped his Game at this point and try as i could to pass him, to his credit he did not make a mistake even when at times I was on his Rear Bumper !! ....
On Checking our Lap times we was like 1 thousanth of a second apart!!
Race 2 @ 6pm was Dry but still Cold around 10c , In the Race that went before us someone had dropped Oil on the Track so there was a slight delay in getting going , and when we did it was a rolling Start with the Safety Car.......pretty much the whole of the bottom of Hawthorns Hill had restricted use of the width of the Track going into the fast right hander, and nobody wanted to go on to it just in case, nevertheless i had a good Race maintaining and at times closing the gap to Neil Adams in the No.156 Red E30 BMW.
All in all a good Days Racing in testing Conditions.
