Bertie has been in the Citroenian several times although not for about 10 years.

As for pics, the races are on Motors TV and the BX usually gets a few mentions as it is a bit quirky. That, and it is slow enough to keep in focus through the bends. :lol:

www.digitexvideo.co.uk/webtv/ should take you to old Motors TV progs. In the featured area go to page 2 "Intermarques, QMN,....Final". We are in 2nd race shown, about 10-15 mins in.

Brands Hatch GP circuit Sunday. Two unopposed class wins gave Bertie the Motorsport News Modified Saloons 2015 class E championship. Probably time to move on to another race championship as 2013 3rd, 2014 2nd and now the title. :D

Final races last weekend saw Bertie take a 3rd and a 2nd in class. The additional points move us up to a top ten championship finish overall to go with the class title.

Been out playing with the Special Saloons at Silverstone. They are very quick. Trailed home 14th in the first race 27 seconds behind a very nicely turned out Porsche 930 Turbo. Race 2 went one better to claim 13th behind a fantastic looking space framed Davrian Imp.

Next stop Brands Hatch on June 5th.
