Alan’s Race Review (Monday 13th April)

Posted by admin On April - 14 - 2009

(Taken from http://www.talk-torque.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=3893&start=30)

Well that was certainly an eventful day!

Qualifying didn’t quite go to plan, oil all up avon rise and through Quarry after Kilby put a rod through his block (right infront of me!) on about lap 3 which screwed up all the lap times after that. There was also coolant/oil down on a lot of the other corners too. (Prebble, Rowls and Fergusons engines also blew!)
Unfortunately I didn’t get a good lap in before all that or on the last lap when it started to wear off so didn’t get a great great Qualy time :(

Which was probably a blessing in disguise! Off the start line of the race at folly a hugh smash in the middle of the pack (Wyatt, Wills, Charles, Bird, B Urquhart & D Urquhart all coming together) and various other wingmirrors and window smashed. Being slightly behind I squeezed through unscathed.
Red flag and restart from original positions, Days of Thunder style blind mid pack through all the cement dust at folly! lol

Then about 4 laps in, coming up to Camp corner (about 100mph) the brake peddle went straight to the floor - had no brakes! :o With ‘Oh sh1t this is gonna hurt!’ ratteling through my head somehow the car got through the corner. Stomach/heart well and truely in mouth moment. :?
Cautiously drove back round to the pits for a DNF :(
Near side front brake union came apart and hosed the fluid round my arch instead of the calliper pots, luckely non got on the tyre.

Pictures and Videos to come soon!
