Silverstone 4/7/21

Posted:

So we were off to Silverstone for the 4th July, racing in a combined grid with TTRS, VW Golf , Z4 Cars together with a total of 7 BMW E30'S in our group,was  due to rain ALL day but in fairness it was only really qualifying and part wet for 1st race around noon.   Out of 54 Cars i qualified 46th but 3rd out of 6 in my Green Class.

Race 1 i was doing rather well in slightly slippery conditions and Ken Briddon,Rob Gamble and I was pretty much together after 3 Laps, it was only on the penultimate lap that i overtook Richard Ibrahim in the E36 323i that i was off line for the Hairpin and had a 90 Degree Spin allowing him back through for 42nd place, my finish was a reasonable  43rd out of 60 starters !!

Race 2 came a faster dryer circuit and midway I settled into a good battle with Maciek Kaszczuk where he eventually passed me on the 5 th Lap,only for me to take the position back again within the next Lap ....it was nose to tail at some points!! My finishing result was 40th out of 58 starters .

So a good day was had and all sessions finished with no Technical issues really apparent so thats good , although i still have that annoying drone on right hand turns, which we believed was a rear wheel bearing but upon inspection I now think it may actaully be the rear exhaust box hitting the side of the Boot floor!!  The Car does also still seem to be heavily eating the Rear Pads , so thats being sorted now via an exchange Caliper!
