SWINDON’S Synchro Motorsport entered their Honda Jazz Type R in the Britcar night race at Brands Hatch recently and emerged with a creditable 15th-placed finish.

The event at the Kent circuit usually starts at dusk and runs into the early evening but, due to persistent heavy rain during daylight hours, began in almost pitch-black conditions.

Alyn James was in the driver’s seat for the Synchro team during the 90-minute race round the 1.2-mile track.

As the wet weather showed no sign of relenting, James delivered a respectable 70 laps in the allotted time, his fastest being clocked at 1:05.96.

The race was won by a powerful BMW M3, which covered 76 laps in total.
