The Snetterton races took their toll on the cars and it is was clear that gearbox specialists would be earning over the two weeks or so before the next round as the incredible torque and power of these cars finished of at least 5 Borg Warner T5 boxes.
Electrical gremlins hampered the return of both Cliff Jobson and Tim Broughton with Cliff missing the first race and Tim glad of the early finish of race two due to the red flag incident involving local man Kevin Gore. Body and spirit in tact for Kev but the front end damage to the Tuscan may mean he is unlikely to be out at Brands, a real shame as he was showing good pace.
The battle for class A honours was a nip and tuck affair between Hugh Marshall and Jamie Golby, with pole sitter Hugh succumbing to gear box issues on the last lap with Jamie just beating him to the flag. Hugh had his revenge on Monday with a reversed finish.
Class B was also a shared result with returning Andy Race out this year in a RV8 Tuscan taking it to the class A guys for the early part of the race but the loss of 5th gear saw him drop back into the clutches of Keith Vaughan Williams with a last lap out brake and spin being Keith’s final undoing to finish 2nd in class. Keith took race 2 though when Andy finished driving the car stuck in 4th gear.
Despite the TSL timings saying otherwise Dave Chant continued where he left off last year with two race wins.
The new hospitality set up was very well received and a warm welcome and thank you is extended to all the TVRCC members who will be out in force supporting the races. Don’t forget to come and look us up in the paddock and grab your free refreshments if you are a TVRCC member.
