Press Release-Griffin Racing
After the recent release from Omicron we've received another release from Steve Griffin. It is not in the least bit tongue in cheek.......
Reluctant Yorkshireman Steven Griffin made an expected return to the bottom of the time sheets in his twentieth visit to the Cheshire circuit of Oulton Park today.
Practice was an uncertain affair with Griffin unable to decide which gear to use through any of the corners. The presence of puddles from heavy overnight rain offering him a useful excuse for his lowly grid position.
Griffin was woken from his post-lunch snooze by an unexpected shower at lunch time. The noise of the rain on his caravan roof interrupting his slumbers. This rain, combined with an early start to the race meant that Griffin arrived at the grid a little sleepy with his Van Diemen wearing slicks when wets would have seemed the obvious choice. Griffin’s pit crew (Mrs Griffin) suggested that he should “drive carefully” in view of his obvious error in tyre choice.
Under the blazing Cheshire sun the track dried quickly and it became apparent that Griffin had made the right choice for the wrong reasons. After a faltering first few laps when Griffin completely lost sight of all the cars in front of him he drove with all the skill and determination gleaned from years of competition to not only catch another competitor but even to overtake him.
In parc ferme Griffin was heard to say “I think I may have made a small mistake at the hairpin and locked a front…. My championship aspirations will have to be put on hold for this season.”
Griffin is not planning to give up his day job.
