Bradley maintained his 100% record of qualifying on pole, this time only 0.5 seconds ahead of his nearest rival. The car looked to be back on song.
Race 1: Bradley starting from pole and with a car that was now running as it should left his fellow competitors well behind setting fastest lap, after fastest lap. He finished the race the full length of the Silverstone straight in front of the 2nd placed car.
Race 2: Bradley’s car was again proving a problem – it was losing oil in the first race and sounding extremely sick. So the team decided that as he had now put himself in a position to challenge for the VW Championship following his 2 poles and a win in his last race, that we should send him out for the 2nd race and take our chances that the engine would last. This was not to be and on the lap from the pits to the grid the engine put a conrod through the side of the block, fortunately for us Bradley’s two main Championship rivals also had problems and did not finish the race leaving Bradley in 3rd place in the Championship, only 16 points from the top.
