"There's a bit of a secret to driving these quickly enough to stay in front but not so quick that you destroy the tyres," admitted Andy Rouse after yet another victory on Sunday at a wet Snetterton. Whatever it is he's not letting on as the rest were not in the same event. Gravett eventually came home second after late race dramas hit both Edwards and Bristow, Frank Sytner took B spoils to maintain his championship lead over Rouse, though he was less than happy about team-mate Mike Smith setting fastest class lap on slicks. As it was, Rouse didn't take fastest A class lap, this going the way of the slick shod Jerry Mahoney, so the status quo was preserved. (MN)
