Another weekend, and another race at the impressive Herts facility that was used for the Euro B Championships in June. The end of August in the UK typically sees a few rain showers, and the forecast was for some rain in the afternoon this time, so everyone was at least hoping that could get qualifying completed before the rains came. Darren Bloomfield has been putting in plenty of track time lately, and with that he has got the settings of his car well tuned and is very comfortable in his driving. Using the the same chassis settings as he had at the recent UK National round, Darren was untouchable in qualifying posting times faster than he achieved at the National. He would TQ all 3 rounds on his way to some very impressive lap times. Behind Darren there was the usual Herts protagonists in Kevin Brunsden, Tony Truman and Ollie Currie who had also all been extremely quick at the National, and these guys were battling it out and would be 2nd, 3rd and 4th in qualifying. Sadly, the predicted rains came almost immediately as qualifying finished and while they tried to run the first final it quickly became clear that the rain was here to stay, and the meeting would have to be cancelled.
So we will return to the same track for the first ever Tyre Wars event over the 3 days of the Bank Holiday for what promises to be a great fun weekend….
