    After the podium at Silverstone we were extremely confident going into brands after the success from the last round. On Friday practice the car was going extremely well and we were at the top end of the time sheets even with older tyres and worn brakes. This gave us a lot of confidence going into qualifying where we would have new brakes and tyres to scrub in for the race. Qualifying went extremely well and we set the fourth fastest time out of the 28 cars racing. Down to the regulations in fun cup the grid is drawn from a hat and luckily we managed to pull p6 on the grid for the start.

    Ed started the race and had a good start and managed to get the car up to p4 and stayed with the lead pack throughout his stint. When the pit stop window opened Ed brought the car into the pits in 4th down to an amazing pit stop from the team and drivers they were able to jump everyone in the pits and rejoin the track in first. Chris had a great stint and lost one position but kept the car in a safe second position whilst he sat behind the race leader.

    Team owner Jay Shepheard joined the boys at brands and took the 3rd stint in the car and managed to take first and then develop a 20 second gap to the second place car. Ed then got back into the car after the 3rd round of pit stops and managed to hold the gap until sadly the safety car came out bunching everyone back up together. Unfortunately Ed lost the place after an interesting move from the car that then took the lead.

    After lots of hard work in the last 2 stints the boys and Jay did not get a chance to re take first position and finished in second place. The boys were extremely happy with the result at their home race and can’t thank all their sponsors and team enough for all their hard work.

    When it comes to thrills, anticipation and atmosphere, it was all there at Brands Hatch this weekend. As team sponsors, I was really looking forward to watching this hometown race. On a hot and very sunny afternoon, Amber 195 went balls out!

    Starting from the back of the grid, I thought the race was lost just after turn#1 when their vw funcup car had a collision with another driver on lap#1. But the pit crew worked miracles and drivers Chris D, Chris B and Ed B fought back hard to stay in the race and bag some valuable points!

    As a fan of motor racing, this was as a unique perspective onto Europe’s leading endurance championship. The race commentary was brilliant and the hospitality staff were amazing too.
    If you’re a race fan or a sponsor who couldn’t be there, you can catch race highlights on TV http://funcup.co.uk/media/tv-airing-times/
