A few words from our tame racing driver, Dave Drew;
Just completed the final rounds of the Mini Miglia Championship at Brands Hatch at the weekend, and have pleasure informing you that we started 5th on the grid in difficult track conditions and after a hectic race, we pulled WIN number 2 of the season in front of the Sky TV cameras and an estimated 20,000 crowd.
Race 2 on Sunday we started 6th on the grid and by turn 3 we were up to 2nd position which we held for 13 laps, however had some traction loss out of clearways onto the home straight, and fell down the order to eventually come home in 5th. This race was also televised on Sky and I will update you when they shall be broadcast.
The Final Championship position for the Mini Sport Miglia was 3rd Overall, and we are so pleased with the results. We can always look back and say if only we didn’t have an exhaust problem at Pembrey and rear suspension failure at Cadwell Park, we could have possibly taken the Championship, but that’s motor racing!
I have a few bits and pieces that I have collected for you and shall send up next week, along with DVD of the Thruxton TV meeting win and some great posters etc. Finally massive thanks for your help & support in my Miglia campaign this year and hope that I have done Mini Sport proud of our joint achievements and television efforts. I have been the proudest driver in the Club, and thrilled to have Mini Sport advertised all over the car.
Kindest regards and thanks once again for a fantastic year.
