Finally, finally, we have managed to complete a race meeting here in England. The first 3 races of the season have not got past the first round due to constant rainouts, and even though we are in the middle of summer the weather here has been appalling all year.
The long awaited new motor got finished in May and with tire and gearing changes was ready for the test day preceding the Santa Pod Summernationals. Well, it rained again in the morning and it wasn’t until 3pm that they got the track open. We managed a couple of light passes before more rain ended the day so we had to go into qualifying with an untried combination.
Our apprehension was short lived though as we qualified #1 with a 7.903 on a 7.90 dial in! Our position held up throughout the sessions and we took the #1 bonus points. Race day, we got through rounds and into the final, but a 0.005 red light spoilt the day. Despite that small hiccup we are now leading both the Santa Pod and National Championships and looking forward to some more testing and the next rounds.
