Brands Hatch: Mike finally takes the chequered flag!

After 3 straight DNF’s, Mike successfully finished 23rd in the HSCC’s touring car race on Saturday in his Ford Anglia 105E.

After having spent the best part of 8 months repairing it since his crash at Silverstone last year – the Anglia made it’s first outing in anger in it’s brand new broadspeed colour scheme:

Practice and qualifying took place on Friday and with the sun shining – Mike managed a decent position of 24th on the grid.

Although the sun threatened to appear Saturday’s race was overcast, and started badly too with Mike dropping a couple of places with a sluggish start. However after some good dicing with Anglia’s, Mini’s and Jag’s he came through to a creditable 23rd place with a fastest lap of 1 minute 59.

On board footage can be found here:

And here’s some photos from the race:

With all of these racing miles under his belt Mike will return to the track soon and we’ll let you know where as soon as we know!
