Crashed on Thurs, 28th, all done and finished with a few extra upgrades by today the 3rd. The Ashley GT is looking really good and fit for Snetterton.
All of us Friday eve. at a very cold Snetterton after having the cars scrutinised early ready for Saturday. Keith was with us as well, he was taking the pic.

Had a good qualifying Saturday morning in the Jag ‘S’ type, got down to assembly area a bit late so was almost last to get onto the track. Managed to put the Jag 9th on the grid out of 25, on a dry circuit. Had a good race although a little lonely at times. Managed to keep a Lancia in my mirrors whilst trying to catch a car I could just see in the distance every now and then. Crossed the line 7th. Had a couple of issues with the car. The brake pedal would go completely solid now and then, and the engine cut out a few times as well, causing some heart stopping moments !
In the GT race, Aidan and the Ashley went well, after having a bit of a coming together at the start, no damage other than a few tyre scuff marks. Having had a good race, Aidan finished well up the list 5th overall and 3rd in class.
Sunday morning stayed dry for the Touring Greats race in which the A40 was entered. Aidan went first and got a good start which put us up the list a bit, and had a few frantic dices during his race. We had a good change over, then it was down to me to maintain station, which I did with only a few of the faster cars lapping me. We finished 15th overall, 1st in class.
