After the sodden Saturday we had in Melbourne yesterday, Oakleigh’s July Club Day looked like being more of the same from June – wet & cold. However Sunday dawned bright and beautiful and turned out to be an absolutely perfect winter’s day for racing. We also welcome back Andrew from AKD Photography this month, after missing June with illness. Contact Andrew at akdphotos.com for pics from this month’s round of action.
After carbie session and qualifying for the Feature Class, we got underway.

Last week we competed at FSUK at Silverstone.
We finished 5th overall out of approximately 100 teams with notable results in the dynamic events. We managed to secure 1st in Skidpad, 2nd in Endurance, 3rd in Autocross and also 3rd in Business Presentation. You can check out results from all events here.
The car proved itself on track against some really tough opposition, and we are all really happy with the performance of the whole team over the competition.
We worked really well as a unit I think we’ve shown the European teams that we’re still able to be extremely competitive in a world class competition.
We’re really looking forward to FS Germany (in a few weeks), where we are hoping to consolidate or better our result.
I’ve attached a few pictures from the weekend for you to have a look at. There are many more on our Facebook page if you’d like to see some more.
Can you name these drivers?
