It's been a very difficult weekend, everything went against us and then the race gets ended prematurely.
Tim Hastings in the SuperStock 600 and Matt Bell in the BRDC Formula 4 Championship were both in action this weekend for Team E-Lites, but both had difficult weekends.
Hastings’ race at Knockhill was chaotic, with a high rate of attrition and two riders being taken off the track in ambulances. Tim was taken out midway through the race by another falling rider and failed to score. This capped off a weekend of misery for the local hero, who lives about thirty miles from Knockhill in Bonnybridge. Having got through three gearboxes over the weekend, and having qualifying rained off, there was no luck in Scotland’s air for the Falkirk flyer.
As Tim was struggling north of the border, so too was Matt Bell down in Norfolk. The Snetterton race track was not kind to Bell, who took damage in race one, crashed out of race two, and was forced to retire from the third race after a fuel pump fuse blew.
The results hamper the progress of both drivers in their respected Championships, but we’re not at the half way point in either battle yet – still time to fight back after a tough weekend for the teams. Snetterton next for Tim Hastings, whilst Matt goes to Oulton Park, both on the 5-7 July.
Speaking to E-Lites after the race, Tim said: "It's been a very difficult weekend, everything went against us and then the race gets ended prematurely. We all have bad weekends, we just have to move on."
