Taking to the track once again was Robert Sadler in recently built MK5 VW Golf, that is also used in various other championships. JabbaSport were also customer support for Julian Newman in his BMW M5.
With the sun glaring down the track temperatures were some of the highest this season. Qualifying was heavily dominated at the top of the times by BMW E36 M3’s but this didn’t concern Sadler, he posted a time of 56.340 and taking 9th splitting the E36 M3’s on the grid. Newman with the only BMW M5 on the grid came across the line in a respectable 57.657 starting him 12th for Race 1.
With less than a second separating the top 5 in qualifying Race 1 was shaping up to be a competitive one. Air temperatures were now peaking at just under 21oc resulting in perfect conditions for racing! Sadler had a fantastic battle throughout the race with Brian Jones all race, both drivers were racing to perfection, with clean overtakes and some brilliant blocking. Sadler managed to overtake Jones in the closing moments of the race to take 9th. Newman found himself battling with Willcocks throughout the race which resulted in him taking 12th.
Race 2 was a little more eventful for Sadler, pushing harder and harder Sadler found himself coming in to Paddock Hill Bend a little more sideways than he would have wished. Sadler said “Never have I been that sideways through paddock before, it was at 90 degrees! “I drove the doors of it to try to keep up with the M3’s but I thought I had broken something on the car so brought it straight in”.
Newman had a much stronger race and managed to gain places throughout the race to claim a brilliant 9th in his M5. Newman managed to complete 17 laps in the boiling hot sun with laps times hanging around the 57’s.
Overall another fantastic weekend racing for the team!
