Heading to Rockingham…
The championship battle is really heating up as we head to Rockingham for Rounds 14 & 15 this weekend, 6/7 September.
After my double wins at Croft and Snetterton, reigning champion Michael Meadows took a perfect points haul at Knockhill and although I got close, I had to settle for 2nd place in both races.
I was expecting to lose points at Knockhill as I had never been to the circuit before and Michael has a great record there, so I was satisfied that I had done my best.
I really enjoyed Knockhill. It’s a small circuit but hilly, bumpy and tricky. There was a huge crowd enjoying the racing in the summer sunshine on Sunday after wet weather earlier in the week and I enjoyed meeting many enthusiastic Scottish motor racing fans.
So we go to Rockingham with an 8 point lead. I haven’t driven the Porsche at Rockingham but I know the circuit from Formula Renault days. I’m grateful that we have two test sessions on Friday for me to get the hang of it before qualifying on Saturday.
Qualifying is at 11.30 on Saturday, followed by race 1 at 16.20. Race 2 is on Sunday (live on ITV 4 HD) at 14.32.
Whatever you’re doing this coming weekend I hope you have a great time. I look forward to seeing some of you at Rockingham. Thanks for all the good luck wishes and support, it means a great deal to me.
