CSCC Tin Tops Brands Hatch 08/05/11

an issue. Lots of fun thugh
Mallory Park Modsports & Supersaloons 290811
Movie I made at the CSCC Modsports and Super Saloons Revival Challenge
meeting at Mallory Park on 29/08/2011. Features;
Jeff Wilson and his team fettle the ex-Mick Hill VW Bug V8, they never did
solve the problem causing a viscous weave underbraking. David Tetley and
his crew warm the "Stars and Stripes" Opel Manta 400-Pontiac V8; Thomas
Carey warming the Imp Californian; Bill Richards warming his Rover Metro;
Bernie Chodosh warming his Chevy Corvette; Joss Ronchetti in the Sunbean
Talbot Lotus. Then out for practice, footage from session two. Then lunch
and the rain comes down, first race is a wet start, Mike Wilds in Daf-ne
takes off, Pete Edwards comes through in the Escort Mk2 class-B
Thundersaloon to take the win on a greasy track. Race two is much faster, Simon Allaway (lotus Silouette) and
Pete Stevens (Sertec Carlton TS) having a real battle. Michael Bell the the
"Lairy Canary" Escort has a big moment, Lee Costello in the other black
Escort (V8 power in this one) comes through before it throws the cooling
belt. Unfortunately the camera stopped then, just as the fun was really

CSCC Tin Tops Snetterton 300 09/04/11
My first ever race in a well known Class B car. Fastest 8 valve on
qualifying 8th really happy with that. But inherited 7th on the grid due to
a retirement. The intention of the day was to learn as much as possible and
stay out of trouble but I got hit on the rolling start so that didn't last
long. Wasn't too happy but I guess that sort of thing can happen. The
engine overheated in the end and I span on my own fluid but stupidly kept
on going. Eventually I looked at the water temperature and it was off the
scale. Why did I not check it earlier? What a berk! I knocked it on the
head after that and retired. Hopefully I will be back soon after having
learned several valuable or should it be "expensive" lessons. Anyway, met
some nice people and thanks to Lewis, Andy, Judith, Keith, Toby and Lisa.
