Welcome to the April sprinting report.
We had a good turnout for the first sprint for 2014 along with the inaugural unveiling of Peter Axford’s new 105 (18 years in the build) and Dale Ashby’s Group S Montreal along with the debut of Adam Savis in his Sud.
I had some minor overheating issues on my shakedown event in February but have made some slight changes and with the cooler weather at the sprint, thankfully there were no issues. It will be a little different for Marlene and I because we won’t have our Camper with us,
darn-no kitchen sink!. Back to basics Hmmmm,I hope Marlene still enjoys her Birthday.
Some drivers achieved their best lap times ever and some had issues but I think everybody was reasonably pleased with their day at the track.
