Luke Allen from Hilborough had a tricky start to the Classic Touring Car Pre 2003 Championship season at Rockingham last weekend.
He said: “It was a circuit that I’d never driven on before and with limited testing pre season we were looking to bring home two solid points finishes. After qualifying lower on the grid, race one was a challenge. A spin on cold tyres put me back to last but managed to claw my way up to third in class.
“Race two was better after the tyres warmed up. I was catching the leader at over a second a lap but unfortunately run out of laps.
“Round two is at Cadwell Park, which is one of my favourite, on May 15.”
