Silverstone GP 27th April 2013

Craig had a good start to the season at the first round BIGprofile sponsored Sports 2000 sprint race event at Silverstone GP circuit on 27th April. 

Craig went straight into a damp 20 minute qualifying after not being in his trusty Lola T88 / 90 since the Formula Ford Festival at the end of 2011 where the car achieved a third place finish. He shuffled within the top six or seven cars as the track dried and ended up in third place on the grid despite having real issues getting up to temperature in the cool conditions.   In the afternoon race Craig again suffered with loss of power as the car struggled to get any temperature at all despite having made some changes to the cooling inlets and radiator arrangements.   Due to the age of the superb Lola it now falls into the Class B range of cars and finished first in class / third overall for the entire event, not a bad weekend considering the large field of racers on the day.    

Next race for Sports 2000 is a double header event at Oulton Park on the Bank Holiday weekend at the end of May,  let’s hope we get some better air temperature for that one!
