Nathan Heathcote adapted well to the Citroen C4 Supercar, adapting well from a lower category. Does that remind you of anyone? Hmmmm!
Thinking of Dan Rooke, I do hope he's able to rejoin the sport at the Supercar level again before too long. Must be painful for him not being able to defend his crown!.
Looks like Julian Godfrey will have his hands full this year and can't assume he'll retake his former position as champ without Dan the Man in contention! The Supercar championship looks wide open this year - bring it on.
Delighted to see Tristan Ovenden taming the Renault Clio V6 so well yesterday. He seemed to have the edge over Paige Bellerby and the returning Ash Simpson in their Lotuses (Lotii?) until the final when a tap from Ash sent him facing the wrong way. Still, bodes well for 2017.
Sad to see Tony Lynch limping back to the paddock and where was Stuart Emery?!
Glad to see 7 Juniors racing. The sight of seeing two Juniors racing at Croft 4 years ago was a cue to use the loo. So much healthier this year. Great for the sport!
Would have preferred to see Mark Flaherty being released along with the 2WD Retros rather than having a 5+ second penalty each heat. Just meant his 6R4 got damaged as he overtook, which is not what I wanted to see! Ray Morgan looks unsurpassable again, and that was without the upgraded engine!
Couldn't get used to seeing dust at Croft. That was a first for me!! Never seen the bowser used there and standing on the transition from the rough to the tarmac during the supercar final, I was shocked that they were allowed to race when the dust was so thick they were racing blind at full tilt! Yikes!!
2017 should be an epic season! Cheers, Steve
