Following on from his run in "Britsports", Colin headed out to qualify for the sports2000 round, after the disaster at the track at Thruxton, this would be the first time the car had been run , with all the new parts.

Qualifying went rather smoothly, and although the car was running with less power to try and work around the ongoing issues with the engine Colin managed to set a surprisingly good time managing to be mid-pack by the end of the session with no engine problems to worry about everything was going well?

Not quite, the start of the race went pretty good and Colin made up a few places, but soon he started to drop back down the field, engine problems again as usual?  nope! This time he had picked up a puncture on the front left hand tyre and was forced to pit, by the time the wheel was changed the race had finished and Colin scored yet another DNF (did not finish) result.
