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…

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…

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…

Oulton Park Race Report

On 3rd March this year my mum died and she was cremated on 16th March. As you can imagine, it was a difficult time. Testing for Oulton Park was just one day after the cremation, so I had to decide on whether to compete, an especially hard decision as I had been expecting mum to appear. What helped me make…

Brands Hatch Race Report

Brands Hatch Report I took Thursday off work in order to travel down to Brands Hatch in good time. Everything was set by then, so all I had to do was transfer items from the garage or house into the caravan. The last thing I did was hitch up the caravan, enter it to transfer power to the car electrics,…

Thruxton Race Report

It was a long journey to Thruxton, including a downpour on the M6. It was at this time when hordes of bikers demonstrated the true meaning of incompetence. I can only assume they were attending a festival for bikers who had not ridden their steads for at least 25 years. One biker went from the outside lane straight to the…

Rockingham Race Report

The Snetterton round ended with the long drive home, during which time the water pump on my Chrysler Voyager failed, stranding me at the services by the A1(M)/M62. Green Flag came to the rescue, separately recovering the car and caravan. Having already done the sums and working out that it was not cost effective to keep the Voyager, this break-down…
