Hamilton Disappointed With Croft Weekend

Archie Hamilton came away from his Croft weekend a disappointed man despite closing in on fourth place in the pro-am1 championship.

The weekend started badly for the Basingstoke-based driver after coming up against traffic during qualifying on Saturday, wrecking any chance of a fast lap with tyres at their optimum. The outcome from Saturday’s session was that the 19-year-old would start from twelfth place on the overall grid, fifth in class.

Race one started well for Hamilton as he piled the pressure on Ahmad Al Harthy in the opening lap, gaining a place on his way. After holding on to Tony Gilham for the opening five laps the car’s handling and tyres went away for him, leaving him to defend his position, finishing an overall eleventh and fourth in class.

Race two would be a similar story as Hamilton struggled with the performance of the car, and after being pushed out wide on the first corner he lost valuble ground. Hamilton would chalk up another eleventh place overall and fifth in class, leaving him just two points from fourth position in the pro-am1 table.

“After the glory of podiums at Oulton Park and Le Mans in the last two weekends this has been a really disappointing event.” said Hamilton.

“I know that it can't always go my way but having got close to a class win I really wanted it to happen today. I'm certainly happy to be getting the points but have to look forward to Snetterton to get back on the podium. It's a track I like so I'll be training hard and working on set-up to get back to where I want to be.”
