For my 2 penny worth is like this.
The day was a great day for racing , the weather was bright and sunny and we all know Jay's car is good in the dry (its great in the wet as well) but dry was what Jay was looking for.
In my opinion Jay wasn't him usual self, you could see he wasn't 100% a bit drained , no colour in his face and a little quieter than usual, you all know jay as a fun guy with a smile on his face, as I say this is my opinion.
I am not going to comment on the races as the better qualified have done that, but Jay done a fantastic job bring the car home as he did. Yes they had issues but they all got there heads together and dealt with it the best way they could.
It was so very hot in the car and with Jay wearing all that racing gear he was sweating buckets when he came back after each race.
I had a great day there watching all that goes on in the pits, I just hope I didn't get in the way.

Learning 3rd hand about the difficult choices on the tyre front, must be so much easier in some ways if there's a standardised tyre/brand selected for a series.

Have to say that American Fest as a day out is a good spectacle, will stick this back in my diary for next year.

well done guys and here's to the next race.....

Could never have dreamed of this 5th out of 28 big smiles at snodhurst :D :D :D , all ready planning what we need to do to the old Ricer to keep the car and Jay going. No power upgrades staying with reliability.

Great result for Team Snodhurst and Well done Jay, pretty confusing track surface by the sound of it. Should be along for the next meet .. will be a cracker with the GP circuit supporting the F3 and British GT.
Power.. small nail, fast hammer, Torque.. small nail, big hammer.. I got a big hammer :P
