Even with the fears of bad weather sweeping across the circuit over the two-day event, Graham was optimistic for the race. He was fortunate with his grid draws for all three heats, drawing the front row twice and the second row once for qualifying.
As the race progressed, Graham became increasingly more confident, gaining speed as he became more familiar with the track. He achieved a fifth, third and second overall placing, earning him fourth place on the grid for the final.
Despite recording the second fastest lap time of the whole weekend, Graham narrowly missed out on his second podium of the year. He spoke about the overall result with optimism and faith for his next race “Disappointed with the result, particularly as Lydden Hill is my local circuit and we had good support from sponsors and friends despite the weather forecast. It was my first outing at the circuit and my times were improving nicely throughout the meeting and having reviewed some of the in car footage, I can see where further improvements are possible, so hoping for much better when we return in August. The car was good however and now looking forward to the double header at Pembrey.”
Currently Graham sits in third place and still has his campaign very much on track for the championship this year; which now heads to Pembrey Circuit in Wales for a double header over the May Day Bank Holiday weekend.
