Donington Park Sat 5 March 2011

A cold, wet and very VERY slippy day which once again highlighted how useless the weather forecasters can be.

With the promise of a cloudy but dry day, no-one was expecting the misty rain that started mid-morning and continued relentlessly all day. The circuit never got wet enough to justify using full race wet tyres, but instead remained treacherously greasy, with a fair few spinners throughout the day. Thankfully, most of them managed to remain on the tarmac and despite the difficult circumstances, there were only 4 red flags all day with the gravel trap at the Old Hairpin claiming all but 1 of the victims.

A perfect day to get to grips with the car moving around underneath you and thankfully no damage sustained - a real testament to the high level of respect the drivers had for the tricky conditions.
