Two circuits we love in equal measure that posed as much threat as they did opportunity.
Our two most recent events did not disappoint with the majority of the team on hand to support in both Belgium and Lincolnshire.
First up was the “New” PDC Boxster making its debut at the iconic Spa Francorchamps in Belgium. Very limited testing had taken place in the hastily developed Porsche but the team came away with a 6th and 4th from 18 in class to record a successful weekend. Pip & Gavin both loved the circuit and are hoping for a return next season. All credit goes to the team for working tirelessly on the car to get it ready in just 2 weeks and they were duly rewarded winning the TEGIWA team of the weekend award from the 43 entrants. Thanks to Ian, from our partner ABAC, for making the journey with us and helping out in the pit stops!
A week later we made our way to Cadwell with Record numbers racing. Pip Hammond was back to assert himself as the “King of Cadwell”, Jason & Martin both now established top 10 drivers were keen to make their mark and keep up the momentum at their home circuit, Pete now leading the Novice Championship was pushing hard to keep at the top and friend of the team Imran Khan was making his debut in the teams newest Nova GTE.
Hammond wasn’t to be denied as he took Pole & 2 wins. Martin took a 5th on the Saturday earning him driver of the day but was frustrated to finish 15th after an off in race 2. Jason Wood was rapid all weekend with a 6th and 10th to keep him firmly in the championships top 10, Pete Osgerby kept his novice championship challengers at bay with a 21st and 16th from the 23 starters. Imran was disappointed with an 8th in Race one despite never having driven the new car before, such is the quality of a driver, he came 9th in race 2 and enjoyed his weekend overall.
