It’s first time out for the Brabham BT 21 (number 10) at the back there, behind Iain Rowley’s Lotus 22.
Has been a couple of years getting it back to F3 specification and the 2 practice sessions, qualifying, then 4 races at the Slope Classic at Ruapuna Raceway in Christchurch has been a great debut for her.
Not quite up to Alex Morton, but a better driver might show how it can really be done.
Iain had the crown wheel make an escape attempt in R1, and only just managed to keep it in the housing. A quick strip of the Hewland, then a spot of magnesium welding by the on-site engineers closed the door properly and an ever resourceful Iain was back on track for races 3 and 4, with great results in both.
Just can’t keep Juniors off the track!
The taste for racing is again strong and we have two weekends ahead, at Timaru (Levels Raceway) then Invercargill (Teretonga Raceway) with a grid of around 24 cars.
Life is very good.
Goodnight from a sunny and balmy warm Akaroa, en-route to Timaru.
