PEMBREY
SUNDAY RACE 2
It's raining hard, all the teams where looking for a gap in the weather with hope that it may clear, which wasn’t to be. So wet tyres it is, although because the track did seem to be drying a couple or so drivers/teams decided to go on dry tyres, something I may have done if I was feeling more confident, but felt stay with the wet tyres, be safe and bring it home. My thoughts for the start this time were, no heroics! We have had a reasonable first weekends racing, so bring the car home without damage, by the way this time my start was rubbish (sorry). I had an uneventful race and brought the Fusion Mini home unscathed, finishing 5th in class. My thoughts on the weekend are, I still have a bit to learn, as I already said, it will take me a few races to be where we want the Fusion Mini to be.

SNETTERTON
12th 13th MAY ROUND 3 & 4.
The Mini's travel to Snetterton Norfolk for Rounds 3 & 4 of the Championship. This meeting is known as the Mini Festival, which usually attracts a reasonable crowd, with many of the spectators arriving in their own model of these iconic cars. The Mini Festival Features Mini’s from the 1960’s right up to the todays model. This is a meeting for the enthusiast. I haven’t been to Snetterton since I was the Circuit Manager there in the 1990’s. I’m looking forward to hopefully bumping into the odd person that I knew way back then. The circuit has changed in all recognition since I was there, so another one to get to grips with, we travel up on the Friday for a half days testing, to learn the circuit. I’m looking forward to racing the FUSION-EVENTS.COM Mini at Snetterton, with the hope of making more improvements.

THRUXTON
2nd and 3rd June
A great weekend at Thruxton’s 50th Anniversary, the weather was superb with wall to wall sunshine, the racing was amazing with so much for the enthusiast to see both on the track and on display The FUSION-EVENTS MINI was a joy to drive, and its fair to say I’m now feeling really at home in the car. I qualified 4th in my class I’m not quite sure where I finished in the race as there was a crash. So all in all a reasonable result, I cant wait until the next round at Brands.

Can't wait to go racing.
