  1. Great weather sunny and dry but very windy. I ended up with a personal best time for the 2 lapper and 7th in a class of 22 so pleased with that as I think I was the oldest car at the event. The winner in the class was in a modern Porsche then v8 t r etc. I hope to have a couple of videos for aintree and Curborough I’ll make them short with possibility of under bonnet carb action ? If the camera worked ( not checked yet) less interesting than the tyre but hopefully informative? I did have to add lighting !!
  2. Thanks guys today (Sunday) is a Curborough 2 lap course with classic marques. A big entry with plenty of what I class as moderns and a complicated handicap and from past event I know I won’t feature. but the weather forecast is good so looking forward to some track action.
  3. Well what can I say. Rain was always a possibility so managed my fastest time today on my second timed run For 1st in class with plenty of wet and damp runs just for fun
  4. Got a few runs in before the rain hit Then the heavens opened whilst waiting to do a run. monsoon type and struggled to see through aero screen. surprisingly I wasn’t any faster !
  5. Thanks guys the morning is looking dry and bright. wait on a few more triumphs
  6. Busy weekend due - so last minute prep and checks - tyre pressures mostly !!! aintree on Saturday with the tr register champs and Sunday - with another tyre change is Curborough 2 lapper rather than fig 8 ( I fear I’ll go into fig 8 mode !!!!) on Sunday with classic marques fingers crossed for dry conditions
  7. Hope you both recover fully. good deed indeed saving the bat.
  8. I’m waiting for that to happen to me but with a homeless Ford gt40
  9. as you posted the pic I’m guessing it all turned out ok. I’d blame the packer is it under warranty?
  10. Interesting thanks i was using maxsport 185/55x15 RB5 F3 effectively their super soft. With stiffer sidewalls. I think I can still run softer at the rear to try and get start and corner exit grip.
  11. Sorry I do like wildlife even crocs and gators no wildlife should be poisoned.
  12. Worth a try tho surely. Perhaps a swimming trip to the Oz NT.
  13. I love to share that joy. often let kids sit in the car in the paddock. Typically after a quiet “don’t touch” from mum or dad. I ask the parent if the child would like too ? They are often so pleased after the parent has taken pics.
  14. Too low Michael too low. I’ll be running at least 25 cold in the front next time I use them.
  15. I can see Craig making his own skydive fan think powered by a local v8 and a ‘borrowed’ propeller just make sure it’s on blow and not suck or it’ll become a people blender - not nice- seen the outcome of Some one going through a macerator.
  16. Spotted this Mike hawthorn Le Mans video with on board filming and commentary just look at the kit !! them realise the roads are open to all traffic
  17. Thanks for your kind words and support as well as the push to get tyre in action footage. I know that it was really to get tyre in air footage but the at least I now know that I need more air pressure and not to use cold pressures on warm tyres!!
  18. Always so impressed with the skills and attention to detail on this re manufacture of this project car.
  19. Having followed your exploits I am convinced you will still be in credit and you are owed more lollies
  20. Oh John bollocks indeed. I truly hope it’s something cheap and simple ( bit like me, come to think of it) bur I know you can do without these forensic tasks.
  21. Just to keep the motorsport together a duplicate link
