It was good to be back out on track at Anglesey and although it wasn’t the most successful weekend for the 145, I enjoyed my time in the car. I also got the opportunity to walk the circuit on Friday evening to take in some of the scenery and managed to take a few photos which show off the unique location of the Anglesey circuit.
If anyone else has in-car footage from Anglesey, please post it ASAP as the TV company will be asking for it very soon.
Michael Lindsay has put together a top 10 points table after the dropped scores rule has been put into place. James Bishop looks as though he has lost out but in reality he can have three zeros and be back at 193. The only drivers not on this Top 10 list who have dropped scores are Kristian Leith and Andy Inman. Everyone else stays as they are.
