So with all mechanical excuses (hopefully) unavailable to me, it was time to get back on it and have a good weekend. I had a good couple of track and test days before the event, and set a pretty respectable time on the Friday test session, so was feeling confident.
Qualifying was 'interesting' and fun too, as there is SUCH an advantage of getting a tow down the two long straights there was a fair amount of tactics involved, but I managed to qualify 2nd on the grid alongside Matt Sheppard.
I got a great start, and led into the first corner...
