My team mate Nigel Greensall told me ‘you have to tailor your driving style to the car’s demands and not the other way around’. By the end of the six hour race, I think I was just starting to get the hang of it.
The race is something I’ll remember fondly for many years to come. Yes, winning is fabulous and yes I did feel a little pang of sorrow for the JPR/Credit Crunch team, having the win snatched from under their noses in the last five minutes before the end of a six-hour race.
But, the biggest revelation, was witnessing Nigel’s unstinting enthusiasm and excitement for the whole two days. After all, this is a man who has raced all manner of exotica, including Formula One. The fact that he was so fired up by the Fun Cup speaks volumes for the quality of the series. I hope everyone enjoys reading about the adventure in Track Driver magazine later in the year.
