The start of race 2 from car 40. A gaggle of cars all trying to squeeze into Copse from the start sees car 56 come unstuck.

LDC racer Russ Treasure in 1st corner shunt.....

Post  the83man on Tue Apr 21, 2009 12:31 am

After I left Donny I drove down to Silverstone to watch this race. When the field arrived at Becketts for the first time it was obvious that Russ (bright yellow car carrying LDC stickers) had been in the wars as the left hand wheel arch liner was hanging out of the back of the car. I expected him to be black flagged but it seems the guys on the pit wall must have realised it wasn't a heavy piece and decided to let him carry on. Both sides of the rear clam were smashed when he got back to the garage and this clip explains why!!!.

Russ was lucky to get out of that one, I think.... he finished the race but out of the silverware.

The driver on Russ's right thought that Russ had simply driven into him. Russ said "watch the video" and the spinner apologised to everyone so all was made clear.

"Motor sport can be dangerous"

The leaders, by the way, put on stunning race for us to watch. Sean Bicknell was the winner.

Great weekend all round Very Happy Thanks for everyone who came to support cheers

Just bad luck , being in the wrong place at the wrong time, but it means a fairly hefty repair bill on its way but thats racing!

Cheers

Blimey Russ, that was certainly a real crunch, glad you are OK, sorry the car is so bashed up, especially as I saw it on the trailer at Donington the day before and was thinking how smart it looked in its new livery!
Hope all goes well sorting it out.
cheers Tim.
