Snetterton 2/4/17

CSCC Swinging Sixties Round 1

Matt: 5th overall 2nd Class C. Best lap 2.25.57

Matt was out in Bluebell for the season opener on the Snetterton 300 circuit. In Qualifying the car was running well but there was some concern that it was running hotter than usual despite an upgrade to the cooling system over the winter, but despite this Matt qualified in 9th.

In the race Matt made a good start and moved up to 6th by the end of lap 2. He was still running in 6th when the team made a decision to bring him in for an early pitstop. This proved to be a good move as he was out onto a clear track after the stop and by the time everyone else had stopped he was 5th and with a faster car ahead and a 30 plus second gap to the car behind he was able to back off the pace and without taking any risks bring the car home comfortably in 5th place to take 2nd in class. Great job by the whole team!
