I just love that Elford  :P :love4:
Power is nothing without control. Weight is enemy of performance, handling and braking.

My two track sessions. A few other rotaries to be seen, mainly towards the end of the 10.15 session.

Thoroughly enjoyed the day, got several 1m26.XX and a 1.25.XX. I've not broken the 1m26s before, so reasonably happy. Sub 1m24s is certainly on the cards, but I need more brave pills for Camp corner. I brake far too much for that bend, which compromises the whole flat out run up to Avon Rise. Huge respect for Clive and Jon running sub 1m20s  :notworthy:

 :)  :) Thanks Jon!

Strange that, I'm happy with Tower, and Quarry come to that, but not Camp, which is obviously the one corner where exit speed into a huge flat out stretch of track will make a huge difference to laptimes. Tower and Quarry less so as there are only short straights to chicanes after both corners.

I got no issues with Quarry,
Are you in 4th brake,  down to 3rd for camp..
Id suggest just running through in 4th a few times build the entry speed up abit at a time.

Most of the time I changed down to 3rd for Camp and back up to 4th before the S/F line. I tried going through in 4th a few times, but I felt better with the acceleration out of Camp in 3rd. I just need to go in a bit faster ;).

I agree, I need to work on keeping to 4th and work on increasing entry speed. I need an Open Pit Lane day down there to spend more time experimenting  :)

 :) Nah, no can do, taking KIMI 2 to Beaulieu on 29th July, then on to my mum in Poole for a few days.

Anything at Castle Combe at a decent price in period 5-22 Aug you know of Jon?

^^ Update, maybe doing Mallory Park on 9th August as a load of people on RX-8 OC have expressed interest........

Just awaiting re-confirmations before booking that date.

In which case I might have to put Combe on hold, or maybe fit one in August 18-22, if anything available then at sensible price?
