Morning Team Towergate,
Just to keep you up dated , we had the first round over the Easter weekend, arrived at Brands Hatch on Thursday and tested the 2019 race van on the Friday.
All went to plan with a combination on tyre compounds and minor tweaks.
Sunday was race day , morning warm up went well with the #29 Towergate backed machine topping the time sheets being fastest of the 25 car field.
Race 1 went well and after getting into second place lost out on the last lap and dropped to 4th,
Race 2 we had to line up from the back due to points gained in heat 1 and came home in 10th ,
Race 3 after getting a good start, got caught up fierce fighting pack and bought the scuffed race van home in 7th place.
Bank Holiday race day,
Big crowds attended the pit lane for a walk about and garage tour, this generated a great atmosphere as we headed out for morning warm up,
Team Towergate / first4vans race van only warmed up tyres and posted 8th fastest.
Race 1 we just missed the podium and came home 4th,
Race two again from the back fought our way forward and finished 9th,
Race 3, great start but was short lived due to a safety car deployment and rolling re-start, we lost the main pack after trying to pass slower cars
After a small incident with the #74 car we came home 11th,
Not a bad start to the season as we left 10th in the points. We now head off to Anglesey ((north wales) May 25-26th , so if any personnel wants to attended from Towergate
Please let me know and I will arrange entry tickets ,
Thanks for your continued support,
#29 Team Towergate / first4vans
