Battle against all odds for Triumph team at Snetterton MG Relay Race

Planning for this event was taken on board by John Davies and initially consisted of 6 cars in the team. However on the day because of personal and car reasons to team members had to drop out and we started the event as a 4 car team. Apart from the cars and drivers there are other people involved including Mike and Jan May of TR3 fame (CHUG) who kindly put us up before and after the race and acted as spotters on the day. Also Alec and Diane Pringle who acted as deputy team manager to John and time keeper.

Alec has written a short report which follows but although the team suffered some mechanical maladies the TR5 soldiered on and as a result even though the team didn't do very well, I had a great time and certainly got my moneys worth, considering the number of laps I ended up doing! As the weather was hot and the stints were long dehydration became an issue and I remember having a splitting headache after my first stint of an hour and fifteen minutes, which quickly went away after drinking a gallon of water.

If we accept this event as a learning curve, we will be back on October 14th 2012 to give a better showing. Put it in your diary now as spectators and helpers are always welcome.
