Canterbury Super Saloon Championship
Woodford Glen
Christchurch
26 October 2008
To kick our season off we travelled to Christchurch last Friday and fitted our freshened engine courtesy of Greg Hiddleston Our intention of giving the car a bit of a shakedown at the Canterbury champs at Woodford Glen on Saturday was delayed due to that wet stuff falling from the sky. Anyway after catching up on some sleep we finally got our season underway on Sunday evening.

I was pretty happy with the car right away, a bit cautious for our first race but made a couple of passes before going on to win the second heat. A rear start and midfield finish in the third heat was enough to give third place for the night. Congratulations to Ritchie Taylor on his first placing and Ray Stewart who piped us by one point for second place.

Generally I was pretty happy with the car setup and my driving, after our great finish to last season I was real keen on getting back on the pace quickly and regaining some of that form early in the new season. I felt we went along way to achieving that.
