Round 1 - Caterham & Lotus Seven Club Speed Championship 2022

Anglesey National Circuit

Saturday, 2 April

Having done a sprint at Cadwell Park last weekend, C7 CAT wasn't fit for action and Mike Sankey kindly offered me a dual-drive in his 210bhp K-Series S3. A very different beast compared to mine. I'd previously driven it around Curborough on a hot dry test day. It was very wet and cold on Saturday morning, which added a little extra pressure.

Times
P1 -  NTR   - 4 wheels off and a polystyrene direction board blown to smithereens!
T1 - 80.55s
T2 - 66.01s
T3 - 65.01s
T3 - 62.58s - 4th overall


Round 15 - Lotus Seven Speed Championship 2021

Anglesey National Circuit

Saturday, 2 October

It's 12 years since I drove the Anglesey National Circuit, last competing in the X/flow in 2009. It was a very wet and windy day, requiring use of our waterproof suits over race overalls.
In between runs we were drying our gloves on exhausts! Driving in the wet appears to be a great leveller as I managed 2nd in Class behind Mike Sankey.

Times
P1 - 75.02s
T1 - 72.76s
T2 - 71.44s - 2nd in Class!
T3 - 72.75s

Winner - Mike Sankey
