Talk about random. In the testing at Donington last year, the cars did around 1:10 to 1:15, but now, some of them did less than a minute. The most was 1:01. Both were in the dry, with the same cars. Anyway, after a very iffy season, Daniel Melrose came out with sonething to prove, and set the fastest time of the weeked with a 0:59.38. Both Prospecs were right up there, as was reigning champion Gary Cameron. Notable exceptions were Frank Zimmer, who had a dismal test, and was the slowest, as well as Luca Pacchiarini, who couldn't find any speed. Of the new teams, 4 Loko Hemogoblin Autowerks was the fastest, with T. Hemo Goblin setting the equal fourth fastest time. The Australian Minardi of Dave Simpson was 8th, and the RubberTex-Jones cars of Chris Dagnall and Sammy Jones were 14th and 17th. The new Trueba Racing Team's Giovanni Roda was 15th.

You know what the funny part is? The driver that represents Hemo Goblin was the driver who last year represented Douglas Mann.
