Some great looking cars admired by a lot of car enthusiasts, even better looking in their racing livery. Friday was a day of free practice over two sessions, the second one being very wet! This obviously affected the track times and the session was halted twice due to a couple of minor incidents. Saturdays activities included official practice, qualifying and race 1. Race 2 was held on Sunday and thankfully the rain held off for both races.
