2014 Season Ends Early for Bassett
With the annual trip to Brands Hatch on the famous Grand Prix circuit; Chris was certainly looking forward to his first outing on the extended track at his home event.
However, after just one lap of qualifying and starting his first flying lap, the engine let go in the biggest possible way, which meant that Chris was unable to compete in rest of the weekend’s races.
When back at the teams garages it actually turned out to be far worse than first feared and the engine failure suffered at the circuit, along with parts for the Peugeot 205 GTi becoming harder to find, was going to mean an end to the 2014.
“I’ve enjoyed the season back racing after almost ten years away,” said Chris. “Although the reliability issues we’ve had this season have been extremely frustrating, it was very encouraging when the car was running.
“The hard work starts now to get the car ready for the 2015 season where I will once again be competing in the BARC Cannon Tin Tops Championship. We’ve already got lots of modifications to the car planned, so I’m relatively optimistic ahead of 2015. I’d like to thank my sponsors Complete Weed Control, Complete Ice Control and Fusion Media for all their help throughout 2014.”
