1000 Km - Sunday - Very Early Report
The first rain (for how
long?) fell before midnight last night, and a heavy drizzle was
falling until 07.00 today, but by 07.30, it had stopped. Whether
that means that the forecast we received was spot on, and it's now
going to clear - or whether there's more rain to come - remains
to be seen. There's not enough light out there as this is written
to even have a clue.....
It will be wet and slippery
for the 09.00 warm up though, but if Amanda Stretton thought it
was slippery yesterday morning, today is going to be much worse
- at least to start with.
She has Dunlops on the
TVR though, and Andy Wallace wasn't averse to a wet race: "The
Dunlop wets are excellent."
the DBA led the Goh Audi at Spa, in the wet? The RfH Dome didn't
match those two at the end of August: can it match the R8 in November?
The Lister LMP has never,
ever run on a wet track, and neither has the GT pole sitting Ferrari,
adds just another factor (temperature, after effects of the truck
race, gravel, traffic) to the prospects of an intriguing race.
PS.As the sky
lightens approaching 08.00, there doesn't seem to be any sign of
the heavy overcast clearing in the immediate future, and it's drizzling
