Drivers' comments

I must have been the last car on track at the end of qually as whilst trying to figure out how much fuel to put in I missed the start and had to go from the pit lane! :-(

Had a great fight with Phil and another red car and actually passed them both at the same time going down Hanger Straight. Was a bit tight. ;-)

That put me 6th and I could see Tim up ahead but my fighting to get that far had left my brakes in a sorry state. I had to take it easy for quite a while before I could push again and by then Tim was long gone.

It was a lonely race after that and I suffered brain fade towards the end, which resulted in my knocking a rear wheel off at Stowe and a subsequant SnG.

I was the last car on the lead lap by the end so I think that I was still 6th.

Can't wait for next season!

Grats to Sam, Tris & Tim

And also grats to Tim, Sam & Clive for Championship and everyone who participate.

My apologize to Phil for make him loose a lot of time with touch. :(

Cheers to all
