Sunday: Race 1
I had a reasonable start and managed to hang on to the back of the Churchills for a lap or two until I came under more pressure from Ferrier. I eventually out broke myself at Island which let Tom through on the way out, it also allowed Jonathon Young to catch me up and start to put the pressure on.
Going through druids Young had a good run on me and managed to unsettle my car enough to really put the pressure on going into Lodge, I defended too hard and Young was able to take the inside line onto Old Hall. When he ran wide on the way out I thought I had a chance to pass him but he just hung on all the way down to Island and managed to break away. Next to pass was Alan Blencowe; again I was passed on the way into Old Hall. Alan was a lot quicker and I just couldn't stay with him. Bearing in mind I had buzzed the engine the day before, I don't think the day went too badly. I still have so much to learn about race craft!
Sunday: Race 2
We had about an hour of torrential rain right before the second race but the circuit was drying quickly. Like most others we choose wets. Gordon wanted to change to slicks in the holding area,
but there wasn't time as we were called to the grid. The result was that the four drivers who made the bold decision early ran away with it. I had a good battle with Harry and Nick for most of the race only breaking away with a couple of laps to go.
All in all a great weekend, with plenty of close racing and lots for me to reflect on and learn from for next time.
