Ant101 vs VernonJones

So - mine and Anthony's first year in racing this year, him in the FunCup and me in the AtomCup.

Anthony joined us for Brands GP a month or so ago and came a respectable 6th on slicks in the rain where a lot of other regular drivers fell off.

So it's now my turn to have a go at the Funcup at Anglesey next weekend. Its 2 x 3hour races and it's a 3 driver share. It will be me and 2 other Atom Cup drivers, Paul Donkin and Nick Whitehead.

Let Battle Commence............

So excited for you and the Atom boys to come race in the Funcup. It will be really interesting to see what you think and I guarantee there will be plenty of paint being swapped over the weekend....Anglesey is new for me as well, but I heard its a great circuit.

As for our GTRs at Silverstone next Thursday...we deserve a dry day as the Sun has not favoured us for a while....there are some GTRs attending with serious track builds so will be interesting to see what happens. I believe there is a couple of Atoms and a 991 GT3 attending with the club now...

Can't wait..

Unfortunately Ant has told me he will be in Germany when the Sprint is on, however Mr Miskin is entered and also Paul in his rather rapid R33 will give everybody a bit of competition at the Sprint.

The 16yr old driver I look after in F4 does 1min 5s in his F4 car round Silverstone GP circuit, and it's only 180bhp from a Ford Duratec engine.

I don't need more competition Barry, I'm slow enough already.

Cheers Ant, but i think you've caught me up now mate. Hope we get chance to lock horns this weekend because i'm sick of your team mate passing me (usually under yellow flags) .

Will text you thursday night let you know what time i'm at the circuit on Friday morning. I am aiming for 7:30 - 07:45 to help our team set up.

24 cars registered upto now. Good turnout for Anglesey as few teams dropped this round last year because of the distance.
