Harewood 1100 & 1600 records

Well done to Robert Kenrick in the 1100 Raptor BMW for smashing the 1100 record at Harewood on both days this past weekend.

Saturday also saw him take BTDBTDBTD with a 51.73 run - taking over a second off Hemingway's 2009 record.

On Sunday for the BHC rounds he took over 1 1/2 seconds off Fidoe's 2013 record for a 51.11s which would have qualified him 7th for the run-off had he been registered.

Awesome performance from Richard Spedding (In Les's car) taking 2 tenths off Jos's 2012 1600 record and being top qualifier for both BHC rounds and finishing 2nd in both.

With Les Mutch taking 2nd in class Graeme should be justifiably proud of his team's performance.

Well done all!

Yep - the whole startline crew including yourself, Dave and Lindsay were kept busy on tyre-wrap removal and engine starting - many thanks for all the help.

Some fst time indeed. A low 53 is still blooming fast Steve.

Here's a 360 video of my brother in the OMS. We both ran PBs, but were al long way behind the Raptor.

It's all progress though.
