Second Race at Brands Hatch

Another sunny day, good crowds and the last race before lunch. Grid positions were from Saturdays results so I started in 4th place.   A good rolling start and held up by the front two Morgans at the first bend.   At the end of lap 1 I was up to 3rd but having, once again, a tussle with the McCarthy MGB V8.   It just squeaked past me on lap 3 but it and the leaders were not going away from me very much – my times were quicker than yesterday and the car felt good.   The Hall Camaro pitted for its driver change and I moved back up to 3rd which is when I pitted for John to take over.   As the pit stops progressed John settled into 5th but in a couple of laps he was up to 3rd, unable to make any impression on the 2 in front, but pulling ahead of the McCarthy MG (our turn today) and so it was at the chequered flag – a strong 3rd and on the podium for the 3rd meeting in a row.   That softened the disappointment of yesterdays bent DBS.   The Team Belfry MGB didn’t run as Ant was not allowed to transfer to it by the stewards and Ciaran wasn’t at the track.
