CGRC vs. BTCC: Battle of the 2018 Circuits

I have created a table that compares the 2018 circuits of the CGRC and the BTCC. I have sorted the CGRC circuits, then lined up the BTCC circuits that are the same as the CGRC. For example, both championships visit Thruxton. I have then matched the differing BTCC circuits against CGRC based on how closely matched I think they are….

Silverstone Race Report

It was only a journey of an hour and a half to get from my caravan site near Derby to Silverstone, but I decided to take the whole of Thursday afternoon off work. After all, or so my excuse went, I did have to get back to the site from work and then carry out the arduous never-ending task of…

2017 Point Table Calculator

I have created a spreadsheet to help me work out exactly what my points situation is with just one round and two races remaining. The dropped scores disguise the exact situation, which the spreadsheet clears. I have found examining it to be interesting while confirming my thoughts. Anybody from Paul Hawker in fourth, to Trevor Harber in seventh, can still…

Snetterton Race Report

Peter Godfrey of GRS had offered me the opportunity to drive a Sigma, so I hooked up my caravan and left for Snetterton early in the morning. It only took around three hours and was fairly straight-forward, but I was exhausted on arrival; whether that was to do with looming old-age or just work, I don’t know, but I soon…

Zandvoort Race Report

Back in June I finally started my new contract, meaning that I now had the funds for the Zandvoort race weekend. This would prove to be hugely expensive purely because of the more that £450 ferry bill, and that was just for my car. I was not willing to double the figure in order to take my caravan, so instead…

Croft Race Report

Since returning to work at Bombardier Bombardier in Derby, I had been non-stop busy and so the Croft race weekend came up all of a sudden. I finished working at noon on the Thursday before the race-weekend and went to the local caravan site where I am staying, instead of using a bed and breakfast. There I got ready, hitched…

Donington Park Report

I had been out of work since March, so was relieved to be starting a new contract the Monday following the Donington Park weekend. Even better, I was returning to Bombardier in Derby where I had previously been very happy. For the contract, I booked myself into a caravan site just fifteen minutes from work and, happily for this event,…

Cadwell Park Race Report

Amazingly for me, the journey to Cadwell Park was completely hassle-free. The caravan had a new electric hook-up which fitted ever so smoothly, and away I went. Around than four hours later, I was set up and ready to eat. Walking the circuit came first, which really did confirm just how narrow the track is. It didn’t look possible to drive any…
