Donnington – Rd 4

Donington is one of my favourite tracks and one I dominated last year in the final round of the Ginetta GT5 championship, the corners and straights just making it into a perfect flowing circuit.

With continued problems across the season so far I managed to qualify P14 which was pretty good considering the issues throughout the qualifying session. So I would then start race 1 off P14 and before I could complete the green flag lap I broke a drive shaft and this meant I could not start the race, this was just a very unfortunate thing to happen DNS me from Race 1.

I then re-gathered myself for race 2 which I started off P25 due to my earlier race 1 DNS. I was feeling very confident and after a great start I made up a few positions to P20 but I was sure that the car was not running right I progressed on through the race not making up a lot of ground ending up P18 which was a solid finish.

Further component testing after the meeting found that my turbo was faulty and not producing enough power.
