It’s fair to say I’m not a massive fan of the drive from Lincolnshire to Knockhill, but once there and set up, with the smell of coffee, bacon rolls, petrol and tyres, and the sound of engines, and the atmosphere, you soon realise you wouldn’t have missed it for anything.
Last weekend was my second time on circuit, and I’m slowly getting used to the car and the track. With the first dozen or so cars covered by around a second, any small improvement in my lap times can make a big difference to my grid position, although any mistakes can be equally as costly.
Track conditions and witchcraft saw drivers struggle to post normally quick times, and I couldn’t get out of the 1:12’s.
Im not going to the glove box for excuses, so im just going to post my second race video, that saw me take a trip to the gravel trap and drop to the back of the pack, then have a great clean fight back to the flag, which I really enjoyed.
Once again it was fantastic to welcome spectators back, with a large appreciative crowd settled at the bottom of Duffus waiting for the inevitable… I duly obliged.
A massive thanks to Bishop Sport Racing, (Martin, and Cameron), who worked tirelessly to keep both cars on point, nothing is too much trouble for these guys, and who’s attention to detail makes me want to deliver a better drive.
Finally a huge thank you to the marshalls and support crew, and all the staff, whom without, none of this would be possible.
