Over the weekend I gave the Abarth a good run north into the wilds of Lincolnshire where a very pretty race track carves its way through the wooded countryside. The 750 Motor Club meet featured all sorts of formulae from the single-seater Formula Vee through to the Hot Hatch Series.

It was threatening to drizzle all day but the track managed to stay relatively dry up until the afternoon when I began to realise just how fun a wet, hilly track is. We saw some great racing, interesting offs and some risky overtakes. Here are a some photos and a video from the day, you can see more on our Facebook page.

Cadwell Park is a spectacular track, even the rain couldn’t get me down. The 750 Motor Club races is great fun and I wish I could’ve spent the whole weekend at the track.
