CSCC Race Weekend 25th & 26th July

Team Rutpen are really happy to be back on the race track again, albeit with all the Covid-19 restrictions!

The weekend started with a very wet Saturday for the Civic working hard to acheive 2nd in class in the Tin Tops.

Sunday the weather looked better with Dave taking the Datsun out for the Swinging Sixties.  We qualified 5th in a grid of 43 which was a great start.

 

The Datsun got away well into a short lived third place, the huge 5.7L V8 Camero soon filled the mirrors and romped past. Leaving the Datsun to fight it out for the rest of the race between 4 and 5th with a beautiful red Marcos.

Rain came after about 30 minutes and a collision with a stationary Lotus Elan was very narrowly avoided on the start finish straight.

The Datsun and Dave had fought off the challenge from the Marcos and consolidated 4th , but the lead car spun whilst passing back markers gifting 3rd overall and a 1st in class.

 

 

 

Another great weekend but much more to come throughout the season.
