A desperately late tyre change meant I arrived at the grid on cold tyres and out of breath. The weather is not my friend this weekend.
I took the first lap steady to get the tyres hot and lost four places in the process, then set about catching and passing those in front. It was also a learning experience as I’ve never raced at Cadwell before and the track felt a bit different at full speed.
I made up the places by lap four of the shortened six-lap race, and even managed to pull a gap to win by three seconds. Best of all, I set the fastest lap by 1.1 seconds which bodes well for the rest of the weekend.
Race two is in 40mins. I’ll post up the news asap after.
