Do not expect big crowds Nick. The Formula Ford Festival is not what it was. Gone are the days when 240 competitors turned up all hell bent on going for the big prize. Best racing ever in the past and I have been priviliged to have seen most of the superstars including Schumacher run at Brands in FF.
Good luck for your races and good luck to the Scots in the FF Duratec Festival. Good chance of a Scottish winner this year.
The FF races seem to have decent size grids - hopefully there will be a good turnout anyway - the weather is supposed to be decent (if cold) but I think most will be focusing on the Saturday night egg-chasing...
Will post the report up when we've had time to write it for our sponsors.
I'm quite pleased as I found the 'missing second' from the last time at Brands and was on pole for most of the qualifying session but got pipped by Dan.
I was leading the first race but cars off everywhere so red flag and back to original positions. Made an ar*e of the 2nd start and then spun at Graham Hill bend and rammed into Ben Roper - backwards! Eventually finished 8th overall, 3rd in class.
Second race, charged up the field to finished 3rd overall, 3rd in class as both Ben and I made up a load of places.
So all in all, not a bad 1st season, finishing 3rd in the STs including one DNF and the two rounds we missed at Silverstone...
My ST is now getting most of the panels (!!!) replaced and put back into concourse condition before it goes down to Manc-chester as it's going in the Kempster Ford showroom over the winter.
Seriously, well done guys on a successful first season. Must have been a pretty steep learning curve for everyone involved. Will anyone in an ST be making a return to KH to join the XR's for some quality racing in '08?
