Well that meeting was a bit different!

From our perspective as others have mentioned, the 60s grid was packed with the big guns, and very few of us minnows.....cobras, Daytona’s and 26r seem to have multiplied during lockdown!

Winter set up changes made the car almost impossible to drive in free practice, but with some tinkering before quali, we got the car more balanced and managed to dip into the 2.49s, something we have never managed before, before a throttle rod popped off starving one bank of fuel (we don’t have enough cylinders to be without some of them) forcing us to stop early.

Thankfully race day ran late, so although still very hot, by the time we started the race at 9pm it was cooler. Car ran faultlessly during the race, but for whatever reason we could not find the pace we had in quali, and as Gerard has pointed out, settled into 2.52ish laps, which kept us out of harms way, and as others expired, we crept up the leader board to finish 28th at the flag.

All credit to the PA team, and all the organisers, marshalls, caterers and all involved in ensuring this went ahead, it was great to be back racing.

Good to see you finishing a long hot weekend. During the 2.0 Cup the pit stop followed by a long SC was a little bit confusing for those watching the live timing only. For a while even the number of laps was affected before correction.
As you say all in all a real success, not only this grid, but the whole meeting. Well done again PA.
