Here is the fun and games from the weekend... or at least the fastest run of the weekend...

And just for the record, real hill climb courses are amazing, about two feet of tarmac on each side of the car to play with!  Circuits are so forgiving in comparison!  I think I have found my new favorite thing to get the blood pumping!

Hello chaps,

Forgot to post an update from the last outing, back to Goodwood and had a great day out (apart from the fact I forgot my race suit and two of my friends had to do a 3hrs trip to fetch it).  The car was great, we improved on our last visit lapped time by 5 seconds (I thought I was quick last time), won the class and beat some of the bike engined single seaters to come 6th overall, not bad for a brick.  But to put it into context I managed a 89.22 and the fastest car of the day (A carbon Dallara) managed a 75 second lap!

Anyway here is the best lap... sorry about the condensation, have got some silica pads to go in to stop that.  Sure you can get the idea...

All going really well, looks like we are going to win our class in the championship.  If I was able to do enough events then we would be on for the overall win as well, unfortunately family holidays and work gets in the way of a couple of events.  But getting ready to hit next season in one of the national champs, that should put us firmly back in our place!

Awesome! That really is amazing! :)

Work usually gets in the way of racing. :/ But think about this: I have job that I CAN NOT afford to do anything, and dont have spare time to even dream to do anything ;)

Great outing this weekend, probably the last one of the season for me as it look like Combe is over subscribed so may not get an entry.

Best result so far this year, first in class and second overall.  Missed out to a big power EVO that the course suited well.  Here are my timed runs, small mistakes on all of them, ironically my fastest one had the biggest mistake! Really happy with the consistency though 50.44, 50.37, 50.40
