9 up ay Silverstone!
Last Friday saw 9 intrepid club members head up the track to F1 heaven for BMCC’s 9 man spectacular. After a quick warmup that saw the team slightly disorganised, it was countdown time, and with the weather warm balmy and a slight breezea good time beckoned.
it didn’t take long for the team to hit it’s stride, with a 3 man wide formation adopted around the first few corners, Phil B worked on stringing us out by coming to the front and dropping the hammer. 2/3 of a lap later and Dunko shot out the back, followed by his mate Ian M. They gathered at Broomwagon corner, and Dunko tried to spread the joy, but not everyone was as chuffed to get spat out on lap 1 as Dunko he soon found. Pete and Phil Stacey joined soon after and left Nick, Simon, Mike C, Phil B and Mc Ron to finish the job off.
And finish the job they did- sneaking into 20th with an average speed of 25.93, just sneaking home in front of Twickers and the host’s A team.
A great night, and many thanks to Laura, Mrs McGowan and Mr and Mrs Druce who took plenty of pics (none of which were taken early enough to include Dunko).
We’ll be back after some solid training sessions next year. Well done team….
