Racing 2017

Postby eastlmark » Mon Mar 20, 2017 10:48 am

Another race season about to begin. We are, at the start of the season anyway, racing in the BARC Quaife Modified Saloons series which is based at Brands Hatch and one round at Snetterton. Aside from keeping the travel and hotel costs down, the races are shorter and only one driver and we can use whatever tyres we want. Down side is we are in class E and are way over the minimum weight limit. It will, hopefully weather permitting, get Riku some experience on slick tyres.

First race is this Sunday 26th March at Brands Hatch and its part of the truck race weekend so they are expecting big crowds (for some reason, truck racing packs them in!) No spare tickets as we get a small allocation.

Race 1 is on Sunday at 13.10 with second race at 16.55

We are also qualifying on Saturday at 18.00 if anyone happens to be around then. We will be based in the outer paddock for this one.

We just got back after unloading- the paddock is mental! I have not seen such a busy race meeting outside the GP. Why the heck is truck racing so popular yet car racing generally attracts one man and his... well dogs are not allowed. weathers looking good Jules.
