While the world sits in front of the TV in anticipation of the Royal Wedding, we’ve been putting together the videos from Easter Monday’s Goodwood Sprint.
It was a good day for everyone and the weather, again, was beautiful. Initially the practice session (2 laps round the track) went well, with our team posting the following times: Mike – 212.39 seconds, David – 216.60, Marc – 222.70. (Marc would claim it was just a practice run so the times didn’t matter!) Here’s the videos:
The sprint itself, then involved two separate laps from standing starts, with the fastest laps counting. The first lap times were: David – 109.61 seconds, Mike – 110.58 and Marc – 111.17 , so all covered by only 1.5 seconds. The videos are here (not one for David due to technical issues):
The final official runs then were even faster with David winning with a 107.27 seconds (and finishing 39th overall out of 80 starters), Mike posted a 107.65 (42nd) and Marc with a 108.60 (46th). Again, there’s no video for David, but you can watch Marc and Mike (destroying an engine by overrevving it – not impressed!):
David then actually posted the fastest lap in the extra laps available at the end – a 105 seconds (over 2 faster than previously). David (for once!) and Marc’s extra laps are available here:
Thanks to everyone who came along! We’ll have updates about our next outing (Mike at Snetterton in the Anglia) in the coming days…
