Stewards pull the black race card

Yet more cold weather dampened the excitement of round 1 of the premier championship. Despite having to prepare myself to get frostbite for a second race on the trot, I was looking forward to racing with my new team, Alliance Racing. Driving with Chris Hanson and Jay Elliott means I’m in a team capable of challenging near the front again. I really think there is a good chance of getting that elusive first premier win.

The race went pretty well. Chris did a blinding job, I did a good job and Jay did an excellent job. We were in contention for a podium but sadly Jay got a black flag for apparently getting advantage by contact. Personally I think the stewards were simply punishing him for wearing a brown suit but we lost a couple of places and finished sixth. Still an encouraging start!
