LMA at Brands Hatch June 08

17 June 2008

newsA bright and sunny morning greeted all at Brands Hatch for the forth round of the LMA Euro Saloons which also happened to be Father's Day!

With the new Evo, although still bashed about a bit but shod on new slicks, Mark and Nick Williamson in his Escort Cosworth went out for qualifying. Nick had a great session and finished 6th and Mark fumbled his way around, learning the circuit as he went and ended up finishing 13th - was this an omen for the race?

Minutes before the race, Nick noticed an oil leak from his power steering and as usual, not phased at all by the calling PA system, Nick went about undertaking a quick fix with glue and tape and a temporary repair was made and the Escort was ready for battle once more!

As the start lights changed, Nick got a great start and muscled his way into third place, meanwhile Mark found a gearbox full of neutrals on the start and this was the beginning of the end for Mark as slowly but surely, the Evo gearbox died, forcing him to retire after only three laps.

Nick however, found himself leading after the first two cars both went off in short succession, with smoke billowing from the leaking steering hose and no power assistance, Nick gallantly stuck with it and after a short safety car stint and a red flag, Nick was awarded the very well deserved win.

Who said number 13 wasn't unlucky!

Well done to Nick who has now extended his championship lead even further!
