Having a good season so far in Fishy Dave’s CSCC Swinging 60s series.

3 races and 3 class wins and an outright win at Thruxton (that makes 3 Thruxton wins in two different series in a row).

Last weekend was Cadwell Park - overall I was third and clocked the 2nd fastest lap to go with the class win (all despite a 30s success penalty in the pit stop).

Next up is Knockhill - the circuit I know best. We’re doing clockwise on Saturday and CCW on Sunday.

Damn, can't believe I missed this! Well done, Rich.

Sorry our meet up didn't work out, but more so would have loved to see you win at Thruxton.

Definitely hoping for Combe on 30th August!

Thanks, Jim.

Knockhill didn’t quite go to plan. Spent a week pulling the engine and gearbox out, doing lots of work on the rear suspension and a fair bit of welding too. Dragged the car up to Scotland. In dry qualifying, I took pole by nearly a second (even though I outbraked myself and threw away nearly half a second) but discovered the oil cooler was leaking. Try the wet race without the cooler but the engine wasn’t happy. That was the end of my weekend.

I have now got a place at CSCC Brands Hatch GP circuit race which looks epic and should really suit the Alfa.

I love the long circuit at Brands - proper classic! Quite rare these days, too, I thought, so nice one!
Sorry Knockhill didn't work out.
