Baby 360 2 hour race at Brands Hatch GP

Baby 360 2 hour race at Brands Hatch GP

The 360mrc put on another great event, this time it was a 2 hour mini enduro race with a mixture of cars that were a sight to be seen, from our Aston V8 to a Ford Anglia the field was most varied, Tony Jardine along with Trevor Knight set a pole time of 1.40.806 closely followed by the Caterham and Honda Civic, we could only manage 14th due to fueling problems.

Rikki started the race which was very busy with some very close racing between him and the two Nissan 370Zs after two safety car periods Rikki had managed to climb up the field to a creditable 5th place, it was then during another safety car period that we decided to pit and change drivers, meanwhile Knight/Jardine were in a battle to try and catch the Caterham which had the lead,

We sent Mike Youles out for the second stint of the race and he managed to start picking off more cars with a best lap of 1.45.743, the Caterham and the Marcos Mantis had been given various drive through penalties which had allowed us to catch up and take the lead, Mike was driving very well and had a 34 second lead over the Mantis but unfortunately with only two laps remaining we ran out of fuel, this meant we finished the race in 7th place with a third in class, Hancock/Smart in the other Aston came in 6th with a best lap of 1.47.090 and 2nd in class while the Bmw M3 E36 was 1st in class, Congratulations to Trevor Knight/Tony Jardine in winning the race and putting on a great show for the public, the Marcos was very special.

On behalf of all the drivers we would like to send a big thank you to all at 360mrc along with all the marshalls for making this another successful event, these 360 events really are “endurance racing as it should be”
