Gordon's SMRC Celtic Cup Mini Cooper weekend.

Testing was a fairly routine with scrubbing tyres and getting familiar with reverse. The weather looked unpredictable so we invested in 4 new tyres and swapped out some aging front pads.

Qualification was one of Gordon's weaker point over the season with 'three safe laps and go for it' approach not working. The intention was to be more aggressive from the first corner . . .

Race one started from a respectable 14th on the grid but out of sight of the lights, so not the best start. There was a safety car after a lap and a reasonable restart and trying to stay out of trouble as Robbie Dalgleish and Michael Weddell recovered. The rest was some great racing with Ashleigh Morris and Ross Ross Robert Wilkinson to finish 13th.

Race two really came Gordon's way with the half dry, half wet , track really playing to his strengths and he finished 10th. I'll let the video do the talking.

Race three was really about holding station and maximising points. Some strange pit straight accidents (one under safety car) meant a long safety car period and recovering cars pushing back Gordon back to finish 12th. But a huge chunk out of his PB for reverse and smiles all round.

A good day and we're beginning to feel that some progress is being made. Thanks to PerformanceTek Racing LTD and Knockhill staff.
