The first event of 2016 – The Puma Cup arrives

Everyone agreed the 2016 Puma Cup got off to a tremendous start with over a dozen drivers racing at Snetterton. Congratulations to the CSCC for a brilliantly organised weekend and for keeping the event ahead of time. A record entry of over 340 cars were fielded and compared with previous events there was actually a goodish crowd of spectators.

The race went well and many of us learned some valuable skills. 40 minutes is a long time in racing but the drivers to watch were the three who came home in the podium places. So, a well done to Luke Johnson (1st), Ross Morris (2nd), who had been at the front until the very last lap, and Ben Eacock with a stunning character drive from the back to take 3rd. Endurance racing is really exciting, witnessed by the fact the race winners margin over second was just a mere 0.443 of one second.
