We’ve had a good weekend at this year’s Brand Hatch Historic Festival, part of the 2013 FIA Masters Historic series. Masters Series events enjoyed full grids all weekend, with plenty of cars on track doing battle: just what the spectators wanted!
Our Porsche 911 3.0 RS suffered a few irritating glitches, which ruled it out of two events, but the Light Yellow 911 RSR went well all weekend.
We couldn’t quite match the pace of the bigger-engined cars on the straights of the Brands Hatch GP circuit. A pair of Corvettes outqualified the EB Motorsport Porsche 3.0 RSR by just over a second for Monday’s racing.
As ever, the real test was the race. All three cars in front of us had issues, with one coming off the track at Paddock Hill bend. Meanwhile, we drove to our strengths, kept a consistent pace and finished a satisfying fourteenth overall, behind the uncatchable Lola and Chevron sportscars. EB Motorsport took another class win, and we’re back in the hunt for points.
We’ve got a fortnight to prepare for the next event: Dijon Masters from June 14-16. Dijon is the fourth round of the 2013 FIA Masters Historic Championship. Hopefully we’ll bring both cars home and keep clocking up the miles and the experience.
