Eddie made his debut in the endurance championship today with Racing Imperative, driving with Pete Finnis and Andrew Ure.

The three drivers shared the two and a half hour meeting by doing two 20 minute runs each and a final 10 minute run. Pete Finnis started the race and was up to ninth by the end of lap one after a few drivers made tactical fuel stops at the beginning. He drove consistently and was making good ground when he came in for the first driver change.

Eddie was the second to go out and, despite making heavy contact with a competitior twice in his first stint, made good progress and set the team's best time of the day with a 53.9. The rest of the day passed without real incident for any of the drivers.

Andrew Ure was last to go out and continued with the consistent form of the day. All three drivers were pleased with the days racing and were involved in some great battles throughout the day. They ended the day finishing 18th.

Eddie was pleased after the race saying "I really enjoyed my first endurance race, despite my customary incident. I found it much better than a test day because everybody on the circuit was reasonably quick, which made for some great racing."

Eddie also went on to say "It was good racing with Andy and Pete. They are both quick, consistent and competant drivers. Pete asked if I wanted to do the endurance race at Clay Pigeon as well, which of course I would love to do."

Eddie is in action again at Bayford Meadows tomorrow for the sprint race.
