Last Saturday I took part in the Brighton Speed Trials.

There was a brief shower of rain first thing so the practise session started on a wet track! By the time I did my practise run the track was drying with some damp patches. I got a reasonable launch but I hit a damp patch down track so I only recorded 13.87secs @ 101mph!

The sun came out late morning and by the time I did my 1st timed run the track was dry. I got a much better launch and ran 12.65secs @ 117mph.

On my final run I got an even better launch and ran 12.41secs at a 'monster' 124mph!

I ended up 6th in class (out of 30 cars). Overall I was 19th out of 88 cars!

The fastest car was Jim Tiller in a big block Chevy powered Allard with a 10.34sec run. The fastest bike ran 9.02secs!

A great day out with an interesting mixture of cars and bikes at a wonderful venue!

Simon
