Had my first single seater race at Brands Hatch GP circuit last weekend.
I hadn’t driven the car before and it was on the Grand Prix Circuit which I have not driven before. Qualifying was a disaster as the throttle cable broke after 1 lap.
Therefore I started in 27th for Race 1 and was so far back I couldn’t see the start lights from where I was on the grid. Despite a bad misfire which killed me on the straights I got up to 17th by the end of the race.
In Race 2 I made up more places to finish 5th and made a double overtake around the outside of Stirlings to get into 3rd with one corner to go but with the engine misfiring even wore they just drove past me. The team think the misfire was costing me @3 seconds a lap which would have made me fastest in class. Overall I am so happy with my first run in these cars.
What a fantastic thrill to drive these cars – can’t wait for the next opportunity.
