'It hasn't got better than this all season! After first t12 run I improved time to 49.11. But Terry was 49.10 and Graham 49.01. Didn't leave anything in the table next run, car slightly damaged but avoided anything major and posted a new 2 litre record of 48.45 to finish 2nd in run off! Gearbox change, damage repair, tyre prep, awards and beers to drink right now!'
