Well after a torrid qualifying where I lost all the electrics we were 18th and second in class. Behind us was a little Diva which would ultimately outpace us.

Ken started the race because I've stupidly hurt my back so can't get out very quickly. The car ran well but is definitely down on power because the other MGB lapped five secs quicker than us. However it broke a drive shaft so we finished 2nd in class behind the Diva.

Got to say that down on power or not, driving it was a hoot. Managed to drift it through old hairpin and Mcleans almost every lap. Very predictable. Just needs a bit more oomph before the Classic. I'd forgotten how much fun these cars can be.

geordiecriag101 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Just a quick one, Here's my vid from Saturday if anyone interested. To say it was a tad wet be an understatement, at least Sunday sounded much better. I dont know what to suggest can be done about the relativity poor entries. For only 5 cars to take part in the sports car race is just pathetic, and i would realy love to know were all the Super tourers have gone, lets see how the entries look for the next round at the Brands Super Prix before calling its time.

One of many problems is that Masters doesnt seem to get the same drivers back every race or at least many of them back every race.With Peter Auto they get the same numbers mostly every round.Not sure why but with Masters its just not the same.

Super Tourers just needs to end really.It's a pretty lifeless existence with about 5 to 6 cars.

I could be wrong in the future.I really hope so and that something changes.
