Snetterton 8/4/18

Swinging Sixties round 1.

9th overall 5th class C

The first round of the 2018 season was a little different as this year Mike and Matt are sharing the drive in Bluebell. The weather was wet and cold and conditions started out pretty slippery for Matt who was out first, but it got even worse by the time Mike took over for his session. A car had dropped oil round much of the circuit and so Mike didn’t get a chance to put in any decent laps which was a shame as this was only the second time in the car for him so a few good qually laps would have been valuable experience. Having qualified 9th Matt took the first stint in the race and after circulating in 3rd for several laps eventually came into the pits for the driver change from 5th place. A slower than usual pit stop cost the chaps a couple of places but Mike was out in 7th fending off some faster cars in very tough conditions. He had a solid drive to bring the car home in a very creditable 9th overall from 29 starters.
