    Not much to report but merry Christmas every body haven't ordered anything in a while but as somebody once said it's the little things I put some new plates on the car and instantly thought dam I should have got GB ones ah well only a few quid I'll get GB ones closer to the time.. and wait for it I've got new wipers... Lol all little bits but I've felt like it's time for some simple mods for once.. 20171227_123556.jpg 20171227_123606.jpg

    Always nice to get the little bits out of the way mate! Wipers were probably one of the best changes I made haha!

    Hope you and the Mrs had a good Christmas! :thumb:

    Yeah still as it should be which is a good thing just getting the shopping list ready for the my next season on track.. it's not that much which is a good thing had a change in plans for the tracks as well..

    New rear tyres wider 225 federals
    Then Bedford in April

    Blyton in May with the csoc weekender
    Caldwell in June

    Might need new front tyres at this point will then swap them to 225 aswell will also be keeping a close eye on the pads and possibly get some more.

    Donington in July at fcs will try and have a couple hours session.

    Then will be a big check over and anything else that needs doing for the big trip.

    Nurburgring August which is 10 laps and the drive there and back.

    Then fixing what ever goes wrong.
