F24 races at Goodwood Motor Circuit

On Sunday the senior part of RHS Motorsport had their first race in the V12 Warrior on the 2.4 mile Goodwood Motor Circuit. Since the test day back in March and with some fantastic support by one of our sponsors, Tony from Cycling Made Easy, our car was looking fantastic and the drivers said that it handled well and more importantly stopped well! As always we were one of the youngest teams on the grid but all four drivers had a successful and incident free test session in the morning. Nearly four hours after arriving at the circuit, race 1 was underway and our car was showing its pace with us running 4th in the kit cars and 12th overall out of 57 cars. Race 1 was marred with two long red flag incidents to allow paramedics onto the track – motorsport can be dangerous. Our new gearing allowed us to hit a top speed of 30mph and average 23mph, however the long hills of Goodwood took their toll on the batteries and our car limped home after the last red flag stoppage.

After some coaching and tactical discussions over lunch we stuck with the higher gear, hoped for some red flags to allow batteries to recover and set off again for Race 2. Again the car behaved perfectly and some very slick driver changes by the team saw us fighting mid field. The tactical driving saw us extend our lap distance by a further two laps, but the car came back on a low loader. The team showed true resilience and determination against some much older students and we have many stories of wheel to wheel battles around the circuit. Parents, pupils and staff had a great day and all are looking forward to the next outing of the mighty V12 Warrior.
