Hi All,

The 2nd round of Retro CanAm and F1 for the HSC Club Season was run with 7 entries on Saturday 3rd March on the Big Track.

We had 2 races of 3 and 4 each so as to allow for marshaling.

Joe led after the 1st bracket on his beloved Purple lane but then it was all the way for James who took it out by 4 laps whilst Neil had all sorts of trouble before finally retiring in the 7th.

Race 2

All the way for Matthew again but this time no so dramatically as Mark and Brad were pressing (a little) as they battled for the minor spoils.

The Wash-up

Matthew, James and Mark again with Brad only a lap off the podium.

Fast times for me on 5 lanes with Matthew 2 (including the best of the day) and Brad 1.
