Just the F1s for us tonight.

I was in Heat 2 and I struggled but didn’t really know why. I had some of last years tyres on, think it was that. I finished in seventh place.

Danny is in Heat 3. He had a really good race with Paul Harrison and Lee Fairhurst, it was good to watch as he qualifies for this evenings final in fifth position.

As for the Final, I was going well until 55 parked himself on top of my bonnet! I carried on and got twelfth.

Danny didn’t go back out because he is still sore from Skegness.

After the Final I found out I had a faulty shocker on so we quickly changed it for the Grand National. It felt like a different car!

I managed to make some ground up and got into third, but then I got tangled up. The car wouldn’t restart, which was just as well as I had ripped the the rear panhard bar and the shocker off.

So not the best of meetings really, we got home at 3.40am!

Thanks to Chris Webster, Martin Fitzgerald, and Darrelle Smith for these photos.
