A PAIR of brothers from Hereford proved their driving skills in the rain to come away with a dream result from the Classic Sports Car Club (CSCC) Turbo Tin Tops Series.

Daniel and Sean Woodard travelled to Oulton Park for the third round of the series and after 30 minutes of qualifying, the pair secured a 10th place grid slot for the 40-minute race.

Due to the weather there had been a lot of technical talk prior to the start of the race. The Woodard Racing team were unaware of whether they would be facing a wet, dry or mixed weather race.

The team discussed tyre pressures and car set-up at length, to ensure the correct decision was made.

Daniel jumped aboard the team’s JCW Mini Cooper R56 for the opening stint in dry conditions.

Knowing how strong he was in the wet earlier in the day, Sean was praying for rain during his stint on the race.

A flying start saw Daniel immediately swap his 10th place grid slot for fifth place by the time he reached the first corner.

His confidence in the car shone through as he made his way to a strong class leading position and second overall before making the mandatory pit stop.

As Sean jumped in for his stint, the heavens opened once more. Confident in tricky conditions, he began to set some of the quickest laps amongst the field once again, enabling him to close the gap to those ahead of him.

Despite re-joining from the pit stop in second place in class, Sean soon made his way back into the class lead and second overall by the finish.

Sean said: “Today a dream of mine came true.

"After being involved in motorsport for many years as a spectator, marshal, mechanic and driver I have now won a race with my brother, Daniel.”
