The crosswinds at Paddock hill could also make things interesting!

True.


Late brake into Surtees though - for those that brake there. And maybe at the short entry to Clearways?

Be prepared to throw a lifebelt! And according to the Beeb it’s actually going to get colder during the morning.

I’m in, parked up behind garage, and the rain started as I crossed the Thames. What a bummer.

Positives? I got through Dartford toll with 2 minutes to spare. Delta’s team had a good win yesterday afternoon and the Canaries won later on as well......

A wide spread of lap times in qualifying. Was it very briefly dry at some point or is pole occupied by a very rare Mk2 Turbo'd Escort?


Problems for Mike?

Yes, the conditions!

I wasn’t prepared to risk the car. Simple as that.... first 3 laps we’re behind SC anyway.

Couldn’t believe it- track was almost dry for the second race! Several people including me swapped to slicks, in my case 5yr old half worn ones. Took half the race for them to start working and took me the whole race to remember how to drive on them! Bit different to Dunlop Ls......

Well done HSCC, especially Alan Jones, for all the effort they put in to organise the day. And thank you to the marshals and hardy spectators for putting up with the weather!

We managed to have the 3 ‘tenthers’ cars together in the garages, which was nice. May even get a ‘team’ photo of the drivers posted, if it doesn’t frighten the children too much.....

Just been looking at the results - I rather gathered that discretion was the better part in quali, and that although both races were described as "bright/damp" there must have been a huge difference in the track, given the vast improvement in lap times for the second race.



Glad the Tenthers trio had a fun safe day!

Thanks Cliff- looks like the two younger tenthers are supporting the old guy in the middle!

Richard, the conditions were so bad for Q that the first 3 laps were behind the SC. There was a speed related noise from underneath my car that couldn’t identify, so just did one more lap and drove back into garage! Turned out that the gearbox breather pipe was out of position and the prop yoke was hitting it.... Hardly too serious, thankfully.

BTW was good to have a chat at last with justracing!
