RWYB – Sat 8th May & PTM Show – Sun 9th May 2010

The delightful British ‘summer’ continued on Saturday with heavy rain persistent throughout the day, eventually leading to the RWYB being ‘rained off’ and along with it, the only scheduled run of the day at 6pm. Maybe tomorrow will be better!!! Sunday saw a much dryer if not chilly day and with the absence of Richard aka frontman, it was left to Horace to lead the way. The first run at around 12pm was aborted on the startline due to Horace being unhappy with the car. If driver and crew are not happy then it’s shut down and back to the pits for further inspection. After a quick maintenance check and crew and driver now satisfied with the car, it was back down to the startline for 1.40pm for the 1st run. The car, this time, successfully through the checks ran 5.99secs @ 266.58mph. With the car A OK, there was just enough time for the car to cool down, complete the checks and round to the startline again at 3.20pm. This time at 5.91sec @ 266.75mph. Surely the weather has got to improve next Saturday for Saturday Night Special!!
