Interesting day at Thruxton. Qualified 2nd behind Chris Snowdon’s Alfetta extended arch machine. Good first few laps of the race, trading the lead with Chris. Then, meeting a back marker in the chicane, Chris made an ill-advised dive into a gap that was never going to be open by the time he arrived and nerfed me along the side.
I gathered myself and caught him back up. Then, as seems to be a characteristic this year, the rain arrived. The transaxle Alfettas are much better than the Giulia in those conditions and I slipped back to 3rd. On a drying track, I put in the fastest lap on the final lap going 1.5s faster than the rest of the field but stayed in 3rd.
Damage isn’t too bad. Good practice for CSCC later in the year. Next races at Anglesey with CSCC.
