Gus Burton: Down On His Luck in the Porsche

Gus Burton was taken out on the first corner of Race 1, as it was 3-a-breast that arrived at that first turn.  The outer car turned in forcing middle car to turn in on Gus, who promptly had the left rear tyre pushed off the rim and some other damage done.  Both cars were out the race.

The car was trucked back to the paddock and the guys did the relevant repairs, which, as well as the obvious wheel & tyre, included upper wishbone change and some bodywork.  However, in Race 2 on Sunday the car would not go into gear.  An unknown addition to the damage from Saturday’s Race 1.  Not a good weekend for Gus and the Porsche.  

Now a long break until Knock Hill, Scotland, at the end of July.
