Today I had my first drive in the car for 2009 in a general testing session at Mallory Park in Leicestershire.

XSpec are providing my ride this year and have provided a very drivable car. I started off my first ever 'race' drive cautiously, but after a few laps I increased my speed.

After some tweeks to the rear camber the car handled exactly how I wanted it and was very responsive. After a couple of red flags during the first two sessions I went out to try some different lines in the third session and overall managed to knock some 4 seconds a lap off my times compared to the first two sessions.

It all bodes well for Snetterton on Saturday..........
