Good day on Sunday gents?
I kept an eye on the live feed, weather looked shocking!
Wicked stuff! Saturday was a challange, Sunday must of been even more so! I need loads more testing in the wet. But like I said to Billy, I don't like getting wet .I've never driven in conditions as bad as that in 20 years!! Had a bloody great smile on my face though.
1st heat - Took a gamble on slicks as I saw a dry line coming through...They were the right choice for the first 5 laps then the heavens opened, just about managed to creep to the end.
2nd Heat - Everyone was on wets and wasn't really paying attention to the track...By turn 1 realised the track was dry...Slicks were the tyres to be on so missed a MASSIVE chance, I come in after 3 laps as I was ripping the tyres apart.
Final - Wets were the only tyre needed for that one!! Was absolutely pouring down...Had a descent start and kept with the pack for a lap of so. Andy Parish and Dennis Trzeciak has a coming together in front of me so managed to make my way through that before I had a moment myself through the lake that formed at the beginning of the main straight to let them back through. After that I had a great race with Dennis and passed him with a great move into turn 2. Finished P5 so was quite happy with that.
Taking the next race day off as its Fathers Day...Although I'd rather be racing. Going to do 2 test days instead. Give me some time to upgrade the brakes to BSD caliper, picking that up next week and having the carb bead blasted and rebuilt. I'll have a look at the diary and see if we can book the same day?
