This was the first weekend where we really got to see the effect of success ballast. Sam Tordoff was on pole when we came to Thruxton in May. He had no ballast there and with no ballast again this weekend he was on pole once again. He went three tenths slower this weekend, so that shows that with the rain over the weekend the track lost around three tenths.
