Here's my latest, and possibly most eventful, race


Get rear-ended into the first corner by the Ogle

Good race with the Marcos then, experimenting with the limit at Duffus, lose it but manage to avoid a very hard tyre wall.

Next race we are support the British Touring Car Championship - Britain's most popular domestic car racing series. It will be the biggest crowd by some margin I've raced in front of. TV coverage will be a grade up on the usual level.

Thank you.

Yes - it's slightly worrying as you pull alongside someone and see the smoke billowing from his wheel. Bizarrely someone was telling me that two Lotuses at his race meeting had the same thing happen that same weekend :eek:

Wow! Nice save.:eek:
Thank you - the chief marshal that looks after that complex of corners was telling a friend of mine (a photographer) that he was impressed with the save because many people lose it on the transition of surfaces mud-tarmac-gravel mud - and because he was praying I didn't hit that tyre wall...

Mind you - shouldn't really have lost it in the first place - but I was at least trying :eek:
