Focus cup - Donington December

Writing this in my think tank (the bath).


4th and 5th December finally took us racing at Donington Park for the final round of the Focus Cup. After the race being postponed in November due to lockdown, you can imagine how excited we were to finally get out and race for the last round in 2020 and hoping that we stayed well and safe on the final run up to the event.

We arrived at the circuit on Thursday late afternoon so we could sort the seat fitting as we didn't want to waste any time on the Friday morning and miss any valuable testing time. So 2 hours later and the seat is fitted and ready to go. Off to the hotel for some food and rest sorted out by one of our partners Venue Hire UK. You can check out the hotel here.

Friday morning and we are ready to go (apart from the heavy rain), starting with room service breakfast due to covid guidelines of which the hotel did a great job. At the circuit for 7.45am to make sure we were signed on and everything was ready for the 1st session. We had tested previously in March at Donington in all conditions so was looking forward and feeling quietly confident.


1st session didn't last too long, was difficult to find any grip all round and after a few laps we had a turbo go. Luckily I heard the sound of screeching turbo bearings so came in before it let go and the engine devoured it for breakfast.
