This was Karen and Richard's first race with the Classic and Sports Cars Club (CSCC) Modern Classics series. Each race is 40 minutes long with a driver change. Karen and Richard were competing in the 4WD turbo class.

Qualifying lasted for 30 minutes and it seemed to go quite well. Conditions were dry, sunny and warm. The pair qualified 10th overall out of 24 runners.

Richard drove the first stint, with Karen driving the second. Richard had a tussle with one of the BMW M3s with both cars having gear selection trouble. Karen's stint went well and she managed to fend off another hard charging BMW M3 for the rest of the race.

The race was red flagged towards the end due to a Volkswagen Golf GTI which had rolled at Quarry Corner. Karen and Richard finished 8th Overall and 1st in class. It was a fantastic result for the pair and they were incredibly excited about the new racing format.
