NGRR Oulton 2012
NGRR at Oulton with Paul (aka Jorge #179). With practice beginning at 8.30am it was an early start and the action continued for the rest of the day. It was Paul's second visit to Oulton so when he went out in morning practice he was visibly more relaxed than last year. Practice went well with Paul improving slightly on last years times.
He'd entered into the powerbike session as well so had 4 races during the day. However, the first powerbike qualifying didn't go quite to plan with him loosing his gear lever and then crashing at Druids. Rider and bike were relatively OK but there was some hectic work back in the pits to get the FJ ready for the Pre Injection qualifier later that morning. Paul, Katie and Mark succeeded though and he was able to get out for the PI qualifier. With a damp but drying track Paul went out on wets (as did everyone) so it was a little entertaining watching everyone sliding about on the now dry track.
The afternoon brought a mixture of weather which meant more tyre changes etc etc. The powerbike race was as entertaining as ever with Paul faster again. Unfortunately though due to delays Mark and I couldn't stay for the final PI race of the day but from the results I noticed Paul knocked over 5 seconds off his lap times from last year so well done that man. Anyway enough waffle from me, here's the photos
