What a great weekend

Took advantage of the night racing this year (rather than just going to bed like last year) and it was a great spectacle

...........watching the action in the pit garages was fantastic......the excitement, the frantic action, it evoked a feeling of pure motorsport heavenliness that will take some beating

The rain on Sunday afternoon wasn't a great issue as we were togged up with waterproofs.......I can't believe that soooo many weren't!

Let's hope that the Britcar 24hr happens again next year..........the drivers, event organisers, marshalls, and fans deserve it

GTV TS Turbo

I was with CTR ALFATUNE and their BMW for the weekend. Proper fun, the team was amazing and they finished 13th overall. Couple of shots from the weekend:

Lovely shots I kept my eye on their progress throughout the weekend, they did a great job.

Brilliant! Yeah, both me and the missus walked completely around the circuit starting about half 7 and finishing about 10, was awesome seeing it all in the dark, and guessing the cars by the engine note. Plus we managed to bag a grandstand to ourselves. A most excellent weekend all round. Like you say, lets hope its back next year...

Like spresv above, I spent the weekend holed up with the CTR Alfatune guys. Have to say, as per usual, Gus' hospitality was fantastic and we were well looked after by the team

It's definitely different watching the action from the pits and its a great insight into how things happen at the sharp end in a professional team.

And having seen what the M3 went through and survived over 24 hours, maybe BMWs aren't so bad after all!

Thanks again Gus
