Hat-trick in Scotland
If Carlsburg made weekends, that would have been very close!
The weekend actually didn’t start off on the best foot, with a series of events on the journey to Scotland resulting in a 23hr trip. Regardless the team got the car and all the equipment to the track by Thursday eve.
We got our teeth stuck in on Friday practice finishing 4th in FP1 then finding some pace to finish 2nd in FP2.
The weather in Scotland was as unpredictable as ever with big clouds looming over as we headed out to qualify. Fortunately the session stayed dry and in another extremely tight qualifying session with the top 6 within a few tenths of a second we finished P2.
Race one a great start saw us three abreast for the lead going into turn one, I fortunately squeezed ahead of the pursuing drivers and got into the lead of the race. It was a hard fought race with second place no less than half a second behind for the majority. Coming home to record a win was all I could of hoped for and a great start to the weekend.
Race two was a similar story to race one, this time we pulled out a slight gap from the pursuing cars, enough to not have to defend into the hairpin. Unfortunately the race ended prematurely behind the safety car, without a restart we had done enough to secure the win!
The all important race 3 live on ITV4, one of the most hard fought races I have been involved in. The second place car was clearly faster and we took part in a duel for 20mins with a little contact here and there. We were carrying the live ITV camera onboard and the footage of the wheel to wheel action I have been told was great. We came home to take a nail biting 3rd win of the weekend and 5th win In a row in the Ginetta SuperCup championship.
Wolf Motorsport again has done an outstanding job, the car is flawless. I can’t wait to get going again. There is hardly any rest between Snetterton in a fortnights time, let’s keep this pressure up and go for gold again!
I really appreciate everyones support and it was so great to interact with the crowds in Scotland, always a highlight on the calendar.
We are still looking for partners to come onboard with us on this amazing journey we are on, drop me a line if you wish to chat further. Plans are starting to form for 2023 and they are exciting to say the least!
