Lots of engine trouble, no grip but 5 BIG wins!!!
Two big meetings over the last three weeks. The Interclub debacle and the Hartwell series round 3.
The interclub was the usual late, 10am start to not have time for all 3 races. So 1 full day to only do 10 laps!
The times were terrible with the new steering damper making me wobble at every turn. But a win is a win!
