The Time Attack Series payed it's first ever visit to the Cadwell Park circuit for round 4 of the 2010 series.
Deep in the heart of Lincolnshire, Cadwell is one of the jewels of the British race calendar. It's 2.1 miles of narrow undulating tarmac, snaking through the tree-lined Hall bends before opening out onto the balls out, super fast Coppice corner, then out into the countryside for Park,Chris curve and the Gooseneck before assaulting the infamous Mountain section.
With its narrow tree-lined sections it's no surprise Cadwell has earned the nickname 'The mini Nurburgring'
It never fails to amaze me the diversity of cars found in Time attack. BMW, Fiat, Alfa Romeo, Lotus, are but a few mixed among the usual suspects from Japan.
Adam Foster in one of the many Minis was right up there after practice with a 1.42.169 just a fraction of second off the Evo 7 of Rob Cowling.
Suzanne Duxbury was just out of the top 10 qualifiers with 1.47.955 in the EP3 Civic.
