Day 1

Qualifying looked to pick up where last season had finished with Lee taking poll and setting a new lap record.  Race 1 and a bad start, Lee slipped to 3rd and had it all to do.  Up to 2nd going in to lap 2 and chasing hard, a great fight for the lead and pulling away to win by 4.3 seconds at the flag.

The first victory of 2013!

Day 2

The best we could manage in qualifying was 5th on the grid, this was going to be tough; a 5 car battle into turn 1 and into 4th at the Dean Hairpin.
With one lap completed up to 3rd, into lap 2 and into 2nd after the lender lost control at the turn 2.
Next 6 laps chasing and getting a great tow to take the lead round the outside of the banking.

A second win and the lead in the championship with 80 points.  Bring on round 2 at Silverstone!
