Curborough 5th October 2008

It was pouring with rain in the morning and the track was very wet and the paddock even wetter, with people using wheels as stepping stones over very large puddles to get to their support vehicles! Jan Nycz spun on the first practice on the part of the track called “mole hill” and ended up with his back wheels on the grass and although he managed to keep his car running he couldn’t get any traction to drive off the grass. So he had to stop the engine and get the marshals to help him to push the car off the grass and then bump start him to drive off the course!

Turners pére et fils, Andrew’s making his debut drive, were a little luckier as they were able to complete the first practice, but with wheels spinning everywhere the times were quite slow.

After the lunch break the rain had stopped and the sun came out and started to dry the track and by the second timed runs they all set good times. Despite John’s car popping and banging he managed to set the fastest time of all three of them. However Andrew was hot on his heels with only 0.38th of a second behind him, and took the handicap class for the whole class, so John had better watch out next season as Andrew might beat him in his own car!
