2012 FUN CUP R2 CROFT
Croft played host to round two of the Fun Cup championship this weekend with a twenty three car grid, for a five hour race, in cold, wet, miserable conditions.
It was 2011 Champions, Neil Plimmer and Geoff Fawcett, from the TDI Team Honeywell, who stole the show to be crowned with their first victory of the year.
The random grid ballot saw them placed 4th on the grid, with the experienced Plimmer taking the start and ensuring a strong, trouble free first stint. He moved up into a comfortable 2nd place, to hand over to Fawcett. However, drama struck and there was great confusion in the pit lane, when Fawcett made an unplanned pit stop because the team was told by a marshal that Geoff’s belts were twisted and he needed to pit to correct the issue. Before the team had chance to discuss the matter, a member of the pit crew had signalled him in to check his belts were correctly fastened and he then rejoined the track.
