Race day – 2nd June

Having seen dry weather forecasts all week, it was rather dis-heartening when the drizzle started early on Saturday morning.  This turned into a light rain that made qualifying quite a struggle – the car’s set-up (and lack of “wet” tyres) not well suited to the conditions and seeming to make it want to swap ends at every opportunity.  In Parc Ferme pole-man Mark Sumpter commented that it had looked “a bit of a handful” as he’d come past.  
Having tested his sideways car control skills, and pleased not to have spun or gone off, qualifying 9th and 8th for the 2 races was not too bad but some way short of where Marcus wanted to be.  Still, it looked like being a dry race, and starting further back would make things more interesting in the race…
