Castle Combe Opening Round of 2017 British Sprint

26 March 17
A few problems at the start of the day - full electrical failure, discovered after 2 hours or so and the severed loom was repaired with helps from many in thr paddock. I managed to qualify in timed run 2 and then went on to win the run off after the favorite V8 lost its rear wing at 170mph, other V8s had electrical issues and another went strraight on at the chicane. I came top of the 6 2 litre cars to take an early championship lead!

Although not a national round, a fun weekend with my own car club saw a win on both days, although admittdly there was not much opposition.

A good time was had by all, although suspensionn failure at 130mph was quite exciting as the car went onto 3 wheels!
