27th April 2014: Sports 2000 Silverstone GP


 

silverstone race_4The Team arrived at Silverstone for the first round of our 2014 race season to a sunny but windy circuit. The car was unloaded and all set up for a (not so) bright and early morning. After a cold night The Team awoke to a cloudy and windy Silverstone and got ready for qualifying.

 Tim qualified 12th overall, which for our first round made for a promising start to the season. As The Team sorted a minor issue with the rear anti roll bar and got the car prepped for the afternoon’s race, our team mascot Dylan the Dragon had a look over the GoPro footage of Tim’s qualifying session. And then it was time for the race!

 Luckily the rain held off for the race and Tim quickly moved from 12th to 11th on the first lap! After a yellow flag, we moved back down to 12th place. All seemed to be going well  but from what we could see on the timing screens, Tim started dropping places which led to an early retirement from the race.

It did cause some damage to the brake disc and wheel hub, but The Team have been working incredibly hard and the issue has been resolved. Meaning we will be out for the second round of the Big Profile Sports 2000 championship at Brands Hatch which will also be our first endurance race. If you will be coming along please let us know as it would be great to have you there to support us!
