Rockingham–Race 5 & 6

Qualifying – Wet – P8 & P7
Race 1 – DNF + Fastest Lap
Race 2 – 7th + Fastest Lap

Tigger coming back on the flat loader after the end of Race 1. Snapped lower right wishbone after setting the fastest ever lap round Rockingham Speedway in a Classic Caterham – Smashing the old record by 0.8 seconds!

Luckily the car was repairable for race 2. Thanks to Stuart Higgins for lending me a lower right wishbone and McMillian Motorsport for fitting it. Started P7. Had a rubbish start and failed to select 2nd. Dropped to P11 and spent the rest of the 20 minutes battling with the others. Finished P7. What an exciting race. P2 –> P8 all battling at every single corner! Achieved fastest lap again.

Although a DNF and 7th position was disappointing - the season to date is going well. Highlight summary after 6 races.

1 x 2nd place,
1 x 3rd place,
3 x fastest laps
1 x fastest lap record
