A great nights racing - all drivers safe and sound. A roll over by Harley Burns 299 on the pit bend - sadly missed by my poor videoing (apologies Harley). A BIG thank you to the Searle's for lending us a wheel and tyre after Alberts meeting with the wall in practise. (we owe you one-again!) Also thanks to Mr Lord for help fixing the axel - great support again from the other racing teams.
Good racing by all and Lewie Weaver was on fire - He drove brilliantly winning in the FINAL - Great night Lewie.
The Rolling Thunder Show had local racing star SHAUN HOLLAMBY of AMD Essex racing at the event :-
Shaun is the managing director of AmD Essex, a performance tuning company and motor racing team based in West Thurrock, Essex. Since 2010 he has ran and occasionally drove a Volkswagen Golf in the BTCC - British Touring Car Championship. Currently JAmes Kaye is their driver and they are having a GREAT season. See link here to our recent visit to watch the team last season at Brands Hatch
Shaun drove at the meeting Albert's grandad's number 100 Eurorod in the Eurorods for the night ! He kindly had his photo taken with the winners and tweeted that they are the futures racing drivers !
Albert drove fantastically and was really on the pace - he was in 2nd on the 3rd race and made contact with Jim Cogger and spun out. However, in the final he drove well and kept clear of the traffic coming a fantastic 2nd.
The FINAL results were
1st Lewie Weaver - 9
2nd Albert Webster - 2
3rd Callum Searle - 252
All racing drivers received a HUGE bar of chocolate (they seemed pretty chuffed!) and the top three drivers received Argos vouchers !
FANTASTIC nights racing by all - see you all in 2 weeks after our annual summer holiday !
