ALMS 4 Hour Race from Road America (21st August 2011)
A great track with many undulating corners, very long straight and some scary fast kinks. The finish was a fascinating cat-and-mouse fight across 3 classes. Several manufacturers were represented. The winning margin was under a second, making it the closest every finish for this series! A thrilling race in a diverse endurance championship with decent commentrary, regularly shown on Motors TV.
I watched this wile visiting Zoe, who was house-sitting our parents’ place in Fleet. We went to the Pizza Express on the high street and it was nice. Shared one of their thin crust pizzas and it was delicious.
We had a kick-around in The Views, a park I had only been to for Fireworks Night once or twice when very young. It was seriously exhausting due to the blazing sunshine. I drove us back to the house in Car-Car. (Dad and I had fetched it from the yard as he had some errands to run there.)
The next day we played a bit more football in Basingborne Park, which was much closer. Again it was super hot, a bit too much to play continuously. Still good fun, though.
