HRDC Spa Summer Classic

Another wet but eventful weekend of HRDC racing. Shaun and I made the journey with Ian Burford’s “Lumbertubs” and Jim Prentice’s Le Mans Sprite. We arrived Thursday afternoon just in time for Ian to make the last practice session which happened to be dry and sunny. By Friday morning qualifying the whole place was soaked which unfortunately led to Tubby spinning and hitting a wall. Ian thought it was the end of his weekend but Shaun and I worked flat out to get the car rebuilt for Saturday’s race. We had to beg and borrow to get the bits we needed and had to patch the bonnet up with bits of old barbecue, rivets and zip ties but we got there in the end and Tubby managed to finish the race. Jim Prentice had a less eventful weekend but but in a very solid drive in the wet with consistent times to finish 3rd in his class. Well done to all involved and to Julius Thurgood for putting on another cracking race.
