Plymouth Grand Prix

Well what a great weekend of racing! We had the best racing of our lives so far. Many thanks to Bob and OCR, from our perspective you and F4SA deserve a medal for putting that whole event together.
Challenging in scale but pretty well executed under difficult circumstances in a very busy port!

Fantastic weekend.

Thanks everyone.

Sunday we got 2nd in full fleet race 1 and 5th in race two. Had a great race against Scott and Ken in Team Williams. For me the best racin ever. In fact probably the first real race we have experienced!

2nd overall now but this season is going to be close shave except for the those (to quote Nikki of course) "Slippery Suckers" at the top!

Well done Champs - a phenomenal race despite the lines between two starts being opened further eh?
