Another day, another drama, but more about that later.
The latest round of the DTC was held on Sunday and what a great event it proved to be. We had nine entrants with the Stokell crowd and twenty for Lotus. A swag of the usual suspects eight of which were Lotus and Caterham and the rest a variety of race cars and tin tops.
First track was the usual short one, using all the roundabout. Within the first run the track was clean and proving quite grippy. By the end of the second run we all knew where we stood. Time to start pushing the boundaries.
That went on all morning with no incidents and plenty of quick times. Nine runs in all, and boy is that tiring.
A bit of lunch and back into it. Track still getting quicker for the second course, being the much quicker and scarier long one, cutting out the roundabout. Speeds of 100 to 120 kmh achieved coming into the back of the roundabout makes for a dramatic drive. Ten runs on this course providing heaps of excitement.
Pack up and look forward to the next one.
