Donington Night race

October 2010 Britcar at Donnington

October saw another good result for the SB team in the Donnington Britcar 3 hour night race. Mr Bailey was invited back to take part with his 430 Challenge car. The 430 had some aero dynamic changes  prior to this race and was an ideal test for it. Mr Bailey managed to take 2 seconds off of his earlier fastest lap at the circuit and was extremely pleased.

Unfortunately the gearbox of the Ferrari decided it had enough after the pre race testing and gave up. This saw a very early morning trip back to SB headquarters to get a spare gearbox kindly donated by another customer.

After the early morning transplant we were ready for qualifying, Andy (the pro driver) managed to put the car 6th on the grid!

Paul started the race and did very well to stay out of trouble, he took the car into the night stage and drove very well for his first night race. Andy finished the rae and claimed another podium finish in class for the team.
