Autosport 3hr part 2
So here it is, the race! With rain continuing for the duration and stories of torrents of water gushing in through door shuts this was proper endurance racing, especially for the overall winning E-Type Jaguar with only one driver (O’Connell) for the whole 3 hour race. The levels of concentration and handling skill proved to be exhausting for the most competent driver. Being held on the same weekend as the Le Mans 24hr there was another porsche win here with the 356 Porsche of Steve Wright, Ian Clark and Nick Fulljames getting their GT1 Class win. As a spectator is was exciting but wet, I left site with thoughts of some new boots at the forefront of my mind and the aroma of wet socks drying on my car’s heater.
