MR2 Brands Hatch 2010 - Best Race Ever
Alex is starting on pole for the final race of the 2010 Mk1 MR2 Racing
series, in what turns out to be the most exciting race yet with crashes,
spins and slides on the wet Brands Hatch Indy circuit.
To win the 'Driver of the Year' title, Alex needs to finish somewhere in
the top 15 drivers. He gets a poor start and drops down to third place, but
watch as things go from bad to worse at the second corner.
Alex manages to keep it out of the gravel at Druids but has to wait for the
whole field to pass before he finally rejoins in 30th place. He is then on
a mission to make his way up the field as quickly as possible.
As if things could then get any worse, 3 laps in exiting Druids a car in
front spins and collects another one, blocking the track and leaving Alex
with pretty much no escape.
Thankfully, the MR2 still seems fine to drive, so Alex pushes on making up
for lost time and places.
In the end, after 15 laps, he manages to make up a total of 26 places,
finishing 4th overall, meaning he had done more than enough to take the
The best race yet!
