But just as the safety car was about to exit the track, allowing the race to restart, a second incident involving a car which stopped on-track extended its presence.“When the race finally restarted, there was only 24 minutes of the two-hours to run,” Sandy, personally backed by Huntly-based Black Bull Scotch Whisky, Tunnocks, Lamborghini Edinburgh, Upper Dysart and Alan Davie Transport, explained.
“I managed to get the car up to seventh place, but given the short period of racing, allied to the fact all the Pro drivers are so close in performance, as are the GT3 cars, there was very little opportunity to make any more ground.”
“Seventh wasn’t where we planned to finish, but under the circumstances I think everyone in the team achieved the best we could. We started from pole position, developed the car further, given this was only our third race with the Evo2, and scored more championship points.
“Now we head to Snetterton for the next double-header in a few weeks. We’ve won there before, so it offers us a great platform to bag another podium, and hopefully our first win of the season.”
