"It doesn't matter whether you come first, in the middle of the pack, or last. You can say, 'I have finished.' There is a lot of satisfaction in that."

Driver of the month for September is: Jason Ballantyne
Jason had a strong weekend at Silverstone qualifying 3rd for the first time, for the two races on Saturday afternoon.. Race 1 was a hard fought battle with Mark Grice, Jason just missed out on victory but still finished a fine 2nd place. With the reserve grid for race 2, Jason started P9 but worked his way up to take the win and his first victory in the Civic Cup.. oh and also managed to break the lap record as well! Congratulations Jason!
Special shout out this month goes to Ben Leach in the classic stock hatch. Ben secured his first podium in the series with a fine 3rd just 0.7 off the lead.
Sticking with Classic stock hatch, well done to Esther in her first race meeting with PDC racing. Pip Hammond handed his car over to Esther for the weekend, she had a great battle with Craig Emmerson, I don't think that smile ever left her face!
