This keeps our personal hopes for Rob #905 alive, but as has been said all along, we are proud of him for just earning his place, he’s enjoyed every single round and has not been afraid to fight for his points and places, even on his less favourite tarmac surface!! Win or loose we can safely say all us here at TMR are extremely proud of our driver!!

Roll on 2 weeks, back on the shale & FINAL TIME!! Next post we will have a winner and a new owner of the Silver Roof!
