I had a surprise phone call from Rune on the 11th of September asking me if I would like to drive one of his cars at this year’s Flame and Thunder Event at Santa Pod on Saturday 26th October. I didn’t even have to think about it ‘Yes Please’!!! Who Wouldn’t??? This is something I have dreamed of for many years but must admit I didn’t think it was ever going to happen unless I won the Lottery!!! It will be great to be reunited with Rune and all at RF Motorsport.
The drive is made all the better for me as I will be running side by side with Chris Andrews, the latest British Top Fuel driver, Chris is hot off a win at this year’s FIA European Finals at Santa Pod, so no doubt he will be trying to add me to his trophy list!!! But Chris “I am up for this!”
Just to update everyone I will be driving Jari Halinen's 2013 Car. I was over at Rune’s workshop during the National Finals for a fitting. ‘No problem’. The diet had paid off. In fact, my original fire suit was a bit on the big side, so coming to my rescue was Kevin Kent of ‘West Ten Motorsport’ who has kindly loaned me all of his Stand 21 safety equipment. Cheers mate
Having announced the news on my Facebook page I have been overwhelmed by how many people are looking forward to seeing me back in the driver’s seat. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for the positive messages I have receivedI hope to see you all at Flame and Thunder, so please drop by the RF Motorsport pit and say hello!!!
