HRDC Snetterton Success

The penultimate round of the HRDC season was held this weekend at Snetterton. Good weather and good racing with great results all round. Dave Griffiths qualified a commendable 12th place but charged through to finish 7th overall and 2nd in class in the race. Shaun was piloting Ian Burford’s Sprite “Lumbertubs” qualifying 8th overall in the Allstars race and finishing 7th overall and 2nd in class with fastest lap. Larry Tucker in the Ahsley Midget also had a good day finishing 13th up from 16th. All cars ran reliably and performed well. Could we ask for anything more?
