Snow forced his season opener in the BriSCA F1 Stock Car Championship to be called off.

Tucker admitted his frustration was tempered by a road incident as poor weather blanketed the county.

“Although I was bitterly disappointed not to be racing when I was told the news on Friday that the meeting was cancelled, it seems a very sensible decision by the promoters,” Tucker said. “The last thing you want is to not get to a track because the road conditions have dragged you into a ditch.

“The conditions of the road really hit me on Monday when I got stuck only a mile from home on my way back from work and had to get towed out by a very kind Land Rover owner.

“It does however prolong my wait to climb back in the driving seat until April 6 at the opening Coventry meeting of the year.”
