Brennan Ralls National Rnd 1 13th April
With the warm up events cancelled & no track time at Herts I
went there like many at a bit of a disadvantage compared to the locals.
The Layout would make for a fast track but would be loose & dusty as the uk
weather had put payed to all the hertz guys hard work.
From the word go the 808 was good but found myself unable to find the required
pace on this type of track due to my driving style, so was down the field on
Rnd 1 tried to hard & with some silly errors in the later stages cost me.
Rnd 2 found some good pace & had a reasonably clear run, one error again.
Rnd 3 it rained with a rapid tyre change by arron just made the line in time,
again found some good pace, one error with the marshal struggling in the mud put
me out of contention.
With plenty of hard work cleaning as the car was wrecked, found myself pole in
the E. From here had a good clean start & pulled a healthy lead, I went in to
cruise mode to save car, Elliot passed me on last corner but bumped into D.
With the heavens opening again & a start to forget gradually plugged away up to
7th, but with water now causing the engine to play around 7th was as far as i
For myself a disastrous start to the nationals, but know this type of track i
have to work on & improve on my driving for this surface as its an area where i
struggle. The 808 worked well shame i did not show it justice.
Till next time or see you at Frankley & panther meet.
Keep up-to-date with Bren's progress throughout the 2008
