What a weekend at the BRSCC Anglesey 25th Anniversary meeting - I'm now leading the Northern series with just one round to go.
With a brand new team supporting me I had a good start with P1 in the northern qualifier despite the wet weather, leading by 0.83 of a second.
Going into race one I was feeling confident, however within the first lap the car cut out on me, leaving me in the grass whilst the field raced past me. I managed to restart it, but by then I was already half a lap down - with a lot of ground to make up. The frustration must have spurred me on, as I managed to pull out a P2, with a 1.6 second faster lap than anyone else.
Race two was wet again, but this didn't hinder me and I finished P1 with an 11.8 second lead.
Following a successful test day Friday I made the last minute decision to enter the National Round too. In qualifying I finished P5. Starting Race 1 I had fairly good pace to begin with but sadly tailed off towards the end, finishing P6. After an alteration in set up, I started Race 2 from P6. Coming through the grid with good pace I was able to have some fantastic wheel to wheel racing with Joey Foster to make a tackle for P1 but unfortunately Joey had the upper hand on me in this race and I couldn't make any of the moves stick, so finished in 2nd position.
It wasn't a great start to Race 3. I started P7 on the grid due to the reverse grid pole system, and lost a place off the start, but had a stonking first lap and managed to overtake four cars. From here I fought my way through to finally take the lead with a lap to go and crossing the line with a 1 second lead!
All in all a fantastic weekend coming away with my first National win of the year, being awarded Driver Of The Day, and now leading the Northern Series Championship with one round to go!
Thank you so much to Oldfield Motorsport for a brilliant first weekend with the team and as always a huge thank you to all my sponsors and family for your continued belief in me throughout a roller coaster season.
Roll on The Festival and Walter Hayes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
