Hot on the heals of a successful run at Brands Hatch, Colin and the team were pretty excited about the 2nd round proper of the 2008 Sports 2000 season.
Qualifying soon got underway, but all was not good. Who knows what the pixies get up to with the cars when they are not being raced !. Somehow they managed to break the on-board camera , the engine and 2nd and 3rd gears! Never the less Colin managed to get the car to 16th position on the grid.
Race day was slightly better as the team managed to get a spare part for the gearbox so that the car was only having problems with 2nd gear but the engine still was running rough.
Just before the start of the race there was a massive thunderstorm and the race was declared a wet race, but Colin urged the team to let him out on the slick dry weather tyres, which turned out to be an inspired move. A few laps in the track started to dry and Colin soon found himself with one of the fastest cars on the track. One by one he got past the cars infront and finished just off the podium in a magnificent 4th place in class
After the race the team found what looked like a problem with the inlet manifold causing the engine to run rough so hopefully by the next race the car will be running perfectly.
