Bira 4 Hour race starts 4 hours late


The Saturday Four Hour races at the Bira circuit a couple of weeks ago were supposed to be two distinct enduros.  Sedans in the Saturday morning and pick-ups in the afternoon.  Well, that was the initial timetable, but with a smaller number of competitors in pick-ups than was expected, the pick-up event was cancelled.  The sedans were then moved to the afternoon slot after a decision taken late on the Friday night.  Ah well, TIT.  Even then, it managed to start 15 minutes late!

Pole position was set by Tin and Wasin Srithai (brothers), but they finished the race in 3rd place with 172 laps.  The race was won by a Mitsubishi Cedia driven by Hathai / Jack Lemvard / Anon with a total of 176 laps, followed by the CEA Honda City of Thomas Raldorf, Tony Percy and Paul Kenny with 174 laps.

The new CEA Honda Civic showed its mettle finishing second, having started in ninth position.  A very spirited drive by all three drivers, making team owner Kevin Fisher very proud of his team, and rightly so.
