Cracking weekend at Brands

Decent entry of 27 but only 21 turned up.

NMA Lotus out in 1st Practice with engine failure on 1st outing

Qualifying good betweem Igoe and Neary.

Race 1-Good battle between Igoes Lambo and S Neary Merc.Merc pulled away as the race went on. Prematurely ended as one of the Team HARD Ginettas went up in smoke at Druids.Was back out next day.

Race 2-Being the pitstop race was always going to be good.Same as race 1 with Richard Neary this time being followed by Igoe. Just as both were going to pit there fron and back splitters interlocked which caused the Merc to spin and hit the barriers.SC caused field to close back up.
With about ten minutes to go and a rain shower in progress and great fight between Will Tregurtha in Grahame Tilleys ex RJN Nissan GT3 and Igoe in the WPI Lambo. Kept changing with Tregurtha as the rain came down catching Igoe rapidly. Then on the last lap Igoe who had a couple laps previously lost the lead retook it at Surtees (where I was watching). Surely over, nope .
Going into the final corner Igoe ran wide and Tregurtha retook the lead to win.One of the races of the season.

Shame that the 55 Lambo of J Seale and Pro driver Jamie Stanley was out for personal reasons I think. Also great to see the Team Webb Huracan ST fighting with the G CAT Porsche GT3 of Jennings.

Thoroughly enjoyable.
