She`s back ! After the damage to the front corner ( nearest camera ) sustained at the final meeting of 2012 Baby Bertha was back for the 2013 season. Owner Joe Ward and his team having done a great job over the winter to get the old girl looking as good as ever.

Simon Allaway ( right ) won both rounds at Donington after his closest rival Ian Hall retired. His Lotus shatteringly fast. Here with race runner-up Paul Sibley
