Ever been to Redcar? no, we hadn't either.

Thought we'd make it a weekend so headed out to Saltburn on the coast, lovely town, great surf, great fish and chips.

Sunday is race day so we got to the track for 8am for sign on and scrutineering, then straight into practice which all went well. Mid-morning saw the first race, from the front row we led from start to finish which helped with confidence going into race 2. Race 2 was similar although we had a tussle on the last lap to take the win (rubbing's racing). Race 3 again managed to bag a win so now it was down to the final to make it a clear run.

It kinda went to plan, led from the start and pulled a comfortable lead, HOWEVER, on the last lap the plan to pull a wheelie over the finish line overtook the need to keep focussed. As we went over the line so did someone else, slightly in front! Literally a hairs breadth.

There went the clear sweep at round 3. We ended up 2nd but still leading the championship.

Excited for round 4 (learnt a big lesson).
