I don’t have many pics of the finals because as you can imagine many of us were keen to get away to get home and watch the 1/8th main.
In the B final it was a great race between the Kyosho lads with Steve Brown taking the win from myself and Scott Faulkner – good driving too!
The main A final was an exciting affair with the 3 Schumacher drivers setting a fast pace with Tom Yardy (Associated) and David Poulter (Kyosho/Orion) in very close attendance…..I was on the microphone trying not to be getting too excited – LOL
Half way through the race and everyone sort of made some silly errors. The track was demanding when driven fast.
The time was winding down and Lloyd had an error that saw him drop to 5th.
Simon also with an error too dropped him off to 3rd and now Tom Yardy was on the chase to try and catch Tom Cockrill out in front. David moved to 4th and was to remain there.
Like I said i was on the microphone and made the following comment ‘just one corner to go for Tom Cockrill and he will take the win’ when disaster struck his Cougar! He spun it into the pipe with only 2 feet to get to the loop….yes only 2 feet. Not sure who was more embarrassed at that moment with the crowd in shock!
Me for saying he is going to take the win? Tom Yardy for driving round him to win? or Tom Cockrill for touching the pipe and loosing the final only 2 feet away from the loop?
Certainly exciting stuff.
Thanks to the Silverstone crew for another good meeting – catch up soon
