Not everything was run in the rain. A good chunk of the TT sessions were run in the dry, cool air which allowed the drivers to set some good lap times. Good times like the 1:39.675 James Pasquier laid down to take the win in the largest TT class of the day, TT3. He was the only TT3 driver to set a time in the 1:30’s.
TT1 saw the return of David Gilliland. Unfortunately I didn’t see that triumphant return, but I did see him in the Lightning race. He threw down a 1:38.821 in the first session of the day.
Shawn didn’t blown anything up, or set fire to anything! Hooray! He did rip a coupler on his intercooler piping, but that didn’t stop him from lapping the West Track in 1:36.742 and taking the win in TT2. By the way, he still calls his Subaru a “street car” because it has a full interior. It has a full rollcage that makes a lot of that interior useless ballast, but he seems to enjoy it.
David Bradshaw went out in the first session and threw down a 1:45.668, which held up all day and got him the TTB win. Again, missed that session but caught the Lightning race. Here ya go Dave.
TTD was a one man show. That man being Trevor Pope. He ran a 1:49.481 in the second session.
PAUL MITCHELL was atop the TTE ladder, with a 1:46.946 and Todd or Matt or Alex or whoever behind the wheel. The official results sheet says Todd Green, but in case that was wrong I have officially covered my bases!
And finally, in TTU, Brendon Stewart graduated to the Huracan and put down a very respectable 1:30.142! He was the highest placing Makes & Models driver on the day, but all of the Makes & Models drivers finished on the podium in their respective classes.
And there you have it for TT. Tomorrow we return with our final group: Thunder! Prepare for Thunderdome puns, clouds, and rain photos.
