After my win in 4WD on the Saturday I was looking forward to the 2WD races as I had a few things to test, I put the alu front and rear hubs on my car and also Astro springs on the rear as well as rear anti roll bar.
I had my body painted by a new sponsor RatPaint so the car was ready and looking good.
The car was amazing, I have removed the front end push on exit by installing the astro rear spring and the anti-roll bar and I got the 2nd quickest time so I was very pleased.
We had 5 rounds of quals and best 3 counted I had some mixed driving but ended up with 1 3rd and 2 4th places to be 5th overall for the A Main, for me I was very happy with this as tiredness was creeping in slowly as the day went on.
This was best 2 results from 3 finals so I was ready to see what I could achieve. I was tired but looking forward to the races and in my first one I got 3rd place after being at one stage in last place, so on to the 2nd a main and I needed to get a good result here also, but I was to have a 4th place this time round.
So last round I wanted to get 3rd or higher if possible, unfortunately I got hit from behind twice which put me into last place on the 3rd lap so everything to do and nothing to lose I concentrated on clean laps and managed to claw my way back up to 3rd place.
Unfortunately for me this was not enough to get on the podium due to some other drivers having better positions above me. But to finish on 4th overall was very good result and also gave me some good championship points.
Currently after this race and dropping my worst score I am in 5th place overall with the last round to go on November 1st.
I would like to thank all my sponsors for their help and support.
