Racing at Thruxton - 14th October 2001

The day started with thick fog, but on the way down to the
circuit it looked like the weather might clear.

During qualifying, the track was dry and James went out on
slicks.  This was James' first time racing at Thruxton and he
qualified 2nd in his class.  James said "It is very difficult to
get a clear lap as the 2 litre cars are swarming all over us at
the back of the circuit and you have to give way".  James' last
lap was his best as he had a relatively clear run.

Just before the race, the heavens opened and the track was
very wet and hazardous.  The race started and was red flagged
within a lap.  The restart went smoothly and within two laps
James was leading his class. Within another lap James was
right behind a 2 litre car, the spray was very heavy and
visability was minimal.  James tried to pass the 2 litre car
several times but was retaken on the straights.

James held his position and went on to take 1st place. An
excellent result.
