BRCA 1/10th National RD6 this weekend!! 1st in the A main.
I started 2nd on the grid after a mistake on my part in the last quali not getting the engine set right with the temperature change .
The main started, I followed the TQ man for a while although being faster at the start but held back with only being a few minutes in. After the 1st pitstop where I went 2 laps longer on fuel than the other guys at the front I came out still in 2nd, a wobble from the leader meant I could get past before a few laps later I would have a wobble myself and he would get back through. Literally after that he caught a little bump entering the straight where his car would get unsettled and I hit the rear almost square on where the body would tuck. Despite it not being my fault as I was full power on the straight while he had to lift to correct the car (I couldn’t avoid his car when unsettled as it happened so fast) But I had waited despite it not being my fault. After that I lead for around the final 22-23 minutes only losing the lead maybe for a little bit while in the pits.
I would be able to manage a nice gap of around half a lap from my team mate Mark Green.
Thanks to my Dad for spot on pit-work despite having a horrible cold and Mum for her encouragement on the phone 😘
Also a quick thanks to Mark Green for some advise about improving my brakes.
Finally thanks to my sponsors!
Now a nice break for the a few weeks to rest and regather to give the big car some TLC 😀
