So this one's up tonight, and a few of us know the track well as we were there last week in the FT60's 🙂 ..each time we race these it feels like a trackday & I keep expecting to see the entry-apex-exit cones 😜

As long as we don't visit the cafe at the top of the hill, whilst still strapped in the car, I think all will be well.

The Caterhams were well suited to Cadwell, & I've got to tell you about my race - was on pole for 2nd race lol,  ..then quickly worked my way back through the field 'till I was last again after 2 laps 😋 ..but something odd happened & I found myself slowly working my way back up through the field, & after 30mins I finished 2nd  ..would you Adam 'n Eve it!  yeehaaaa!!!

I was far more cautious going through the traffic from the back compared to Ben. By the time I got through, Ben was 15 seconds up the road. Even me being easier on tyres wasn't going to make up that kind of time. Ultimately a mechanical failure (disconnection) cost him the win and landed me a near sweep of Cadwell -- FT60s and the Caterham feature. Not what I would have expected when I started trying to learn the circuit earlier in the week, having never driven it before. I was almost at the "maybe I should skip this week" point! Perseverance paid off though.
