A quick note on life in the paddock
Having taken things probably too seriously in the Academy, 'a little' less seriously in Roadsport, and now 'much' less seriously in 270R - it's great to enjoy the experience, and you quickly get to see what the Caterham paddock is really all about... The highs and lows of motor-racing come and go as quickly as each another, but the true part of race weekends is the hanging out with like minded mates, testing, setup chat, going for beers and just generally having a good time!

The grid for race two is (as always) decided by your finishing position in race one, so I started on the front row again, albeit P2 this time. I got another great start, led for the first few corners, where Dan Halstead and Justin Heap out towed me into tower corner. We moved around position wise for the first 18 minutes or so in the race which was good fun... then....
