The Schumacher BTCC Round 2 visited the Adur track on the south coast this last weekend. A long drive for many competitors but a good meeting to be part of. Practice on Saturday saw the drivers getting their cars tuned in to the unique coastal circuit, a little disruption from the weather but by the end of the day most were getting up to speed.
Sunday dawned bright but extremely windy which caused quite a lot of problems, luckily the weather from Saturday stayed away and the track was dry all day.
In the premier Modified class Schumacher's Elliott Harper was on top form all day. Elliott was edging out his usual rivals Olly Jefferies and Chris Grainger with his Mi6 taking 4 out of the 5 qualifying rounds. Elliott took a flag to flag victory in the final in the tricky windy conditions. Schumacher's Colin Price was 5th and Chris Ashton 10th with their Mi6's.

In the 13.5 boosted Stock class BRCA champ Zak Finlay was out on his own for much of the day, only James Hart took a TQ round off him in round 3. Zak took the win from the Mi6 of James Hart with Richard King 3rd. The Schumacher Mi6's of Lee Price and Alex Brocklebank had strong performances finishing 4th and 7th.
