Hughes was supporting England today, he had a St. Georges Cross on each wing mirror.
At least he puts in more effort than the England Team, although it looks like he won the first half and Scotland won the second, well done Reidy.

Anthony Reid:

“I’m just delighted for everyone on the team because they’ve worked so hard particularly over the winter with Dick Bennetts, WSR and AER. We know the MG has got it. It’s a very good chassis but the championship is so competitive you have to have everything in place and I think we’ve really benefited from the testing a couple of weeks ago at Snetterton. The car’s moved ahead, I’ve got a fresh engine for this race which has helped and so its pointing in the right direction.”

Warren Hughes:

“A good team session. I’m on the front row for the first race and second row for race two. I would love to have got a pole but it wasn’t quite there for me at this circuit just yet. Having said that the times are incredibly close but I’m really pleased for Anthony and the team that we’ve got one pole under our belt. I can win races from both my starting positions so we’ll see what happens.”

Dick Bennetts, managing director, WSR

“Very pleased to have two front row positions for Warren and Anthony this weekend. A pole position for Anthony in the feature race with a fresh engine is fantastic.”
