Wow, what a circuit. We arrived about eight in the
evening having stopped for a meal on the way up. It was a nice evening so
we walked the circuit. All 2.2 miles of it! It's up, down, narrow with
slow corners, fast corners, twisty bits the lot.
Needless to say after the walk we slept well. Waking up
in the morning Marc Lawrence was outside after an early start. No problems
with scruitineering and we were looking forward to seeing how the car went
as there had been quite a few changes to the suspension and to the motor.
Practice was uneventful, but Neil was disappointed that
the improvements didn't make the car much better and he qualified well
down the grid. After a super breakfast cooked by Jade we checked the Capri
over and applied duct tape in strategic places so all the air going
through the grille went through the radiator.
We were first race in the afternoon and Neil had a real
battle with Peter Holton. Neil was fast through the corners but he
couldn't hold him on the straight and was third in class behind Peter and
Dave Thomas who was miles in front.
Stephen Primett won class C by a comfortable distance
from Jason Christie with fastest lap as well. This increased his lead in
the championship. Third place man Steven Young won class E and he is now
equal with Neil.
Stephen Primett 56
