I attended the first round of Frankley winter series over the weekend. The weather was cold but dry and therefore we decided to head to the race for a good day out to run my XB8’15.
My car felt pretty good in practice on the damp astro surface. Before qualifying I fitted a trifecta wing, reduced the caster and run a medium wheelbase setup.
I finished second in every qualifying run from Simon Willetts. I made a couple of minor mistakes in each of the runs which cost me time. I had a good start but crashed on the second lap in the final. This allowed Simon to get away clean. I regained second place quickly and stayed there comfortably until the end of the race.
My equipment ran great once again after a disappointing day last week where I had a back marker hit me whilst leading in Blackpool snapping my front drive shaft.
