Drama at the very first race :D

Andrew Jordan punted Jason Plato off at the last corner of the last lap.
They both recovered from the gravel and still finished 1st and 2nd but Plato's car appears to be quite damaged.

Will be interesting to see if there are any repercussions for Jordan.

Oh and what a shame for Neal - ending up one lap down :snigger:
 

The Pits

Harumph. Again.

Especially after Neal nearly ended up putting Shedden in to the pit wall!

It is good to see that size of grid too, getting more popular.

Plato wins race 2 and admits to having tested mostly with full ballast - there's confidence from the MG team.
 

The Pits

Harumph. Again.
Valued Member
Agreed.

It does seem like there are quite a few teams there or there abouts though, so should not be a walkover for anyone. There are some who need to settle down a bit though *Cough* Frank Wrathall *Cough*

Great to see that team orders aren't currently in place at MG KX Momentum Racing at least, after Plato let Tordoff through in the third race.
 

The Pits

Harumph. Again.

It looks like the Hondas are pretty quick on the softer tyres, that could make things interesting, although the MG does look stronger than last year.

Shedden on pole for race one, Frank Wrathall impressively second. Then Jordan, Neal, Plato in that order.

Woah!

Almost a massive accident in race 3 after Newsham spun in the Craner Curves.

Watching everyone behind peel left and right was quite amusing :D

Oh dear...Tordoff not doing Plato any favours at all by letting Shedden and Neal through on the last lap.
