Snetterton report in 60 seconds

Here goes ...

Snetterton was evilly cold, windy, and mostly wet. What Jan calls "Snetterton Weather".

Nearly totalled it in qualifying when the red flag came out and the guy I was lining up for an overtake saw it before I did and braked when I was six inches from his rear.

Qualified 4th to my amazement. A wet race. Dropped a couple of places in the first lap but was holding 6th until I threw it into the carrot field on lap four.

Recovered, rejoined and worked my way back up to 16th.

Sunday's race - dry, started 6th, finished 8th.
