Thruxton Rounds 7, 8 and 9
We went into Thruxton knowing that we would struggle for straight-line speed considering our boost setting remained unaltered. However, in FP2 we certainly made a step forward in the car and I was really pleased to go P6, only half a second off of P1. We tweaked the balance further and I was chuffed to bits to make a time gain and put in another qualifying performance less than a tenth off of Mat's pace, finishing 15th.
The opening lap of race one involved the usual level of contact but I was pleased with the progress I made, getting as high as 12th before a tap at Church from Tom Chilton put me onto the grass in what was a pretty scary moment. I lost 5 places as a result of this and struggled to make further progress, finishing second in the Jack Sears Trophy and 17th overall.
Race two was fairly consistent and a good result with me being the first Rookie home after fighting back from a poor start to finish 17th.
Race three was going okay until I had heavy contact with one of the MGs which was travelling slowly into the first complex. I was completely unsighted and to be honest, I was lucky to get away with not having a huge head on collision. Tough end to what was lining up to be my first Jack Sears Trophy win.
