After a busy weekend of racing at King’s Lynn and Belle Vue, we were up bright and early on Monday morning to catch a flight to Holland. Along with Ivan Pritchard and Chris Fort, we were racing at Blauwhuis in their big Queens Day meeting, using cars provided by Gerrit Zwerver, the promoter.

It’s a big meeting – there were nine heats plus a Final, with each driver getting three heats. Frankie got the best results, with third, seventh, and fifth places. Danny got 8th, 6th, and a DNF with a flat tyre, pretty good going considering he’s never raced on a track like that before, and in a borrowed car as well.

Unfortunately there were a few delays in the meeting, which meant we missed the final as we had to get back to the airport for the flight home.
