Post Cadwell Update;

No secret that me @Big Ben & @Benno ventured to the “mini Nürburgring”. Forecast was a shocker however on the day it was fairly mixed which was a relief. Circuit dried out a couple of times and was tempted to throw the slicks on but with unpredictable weather I decided to just leave the PS4s on!

A couple of pics because why not :smile:

Brief update..

bought some used RC6 pads recently from @Yiannis197 which I tasked myself with replacing which was a first for me as in not overly handy with tools but I’m slowly learning and doing my own bits.

looking forward to Bedford this Friday however not so much for the forecast. Bought some used r888r tyres for an arrive and drive day however rain is making me think to swap back to the PS4s
Planning on afew things in the background but after Friday the car will most likely be sorn’d and hidden away! Could be tempted out for another cheeky trackday

Yeah I always think autumn/winter is the best time for track days. You lose the evening ones, but gain weekend dates and they're usually cheaper too.

Only just looked through all of your recent photos properly Beany and I've got to say you've done a fantastic job!

She's a real track weapon now and looks absolutely perfect IMO.

Been saying it for a few years now but I'll have to get out on track one day and see what all the fuss is about.

Keep the photo's and updates coming!

Cheers mate, I know I tend to drone on or spam the thread with pictures..

Certainly changed a lot over the last year.. I’ll keep updating of course and she’s not going anywhere :smile:

Post Bedford update:

One word can sum up the day; WET!

managed to get sighting laps done, and about 4laps in chasing @Benno the heavens opened, we got caught out with the timing of the red flag and had to navigate a flooded circuit.
Circuit was closed for 90mins whilst they tried to empty the drains and flush the water elsewhere. Massive puddle formed on the pit exit which was interesting.

the rain mostly stopped and the session resumed, started pushing the car and perhaps pushed abit too hard as I had abit of a slide coming onto the paddock straight which earned me a black flag. Went out again and was abit gingerly but had a good time.

some of the official pics...

Nowt much has been happening sadly!

Following my misadventure at Bedford it sent my tracking miles out so booked in a Formula 1 autocenter for the alignment doing however coz the car is too low they couldn’t get the gear on. whilst it was up they kindLY told me that the exhaust has started blowing.

Took it to kwikfit who weren’t massively helpful but got both wheels to toe in correctly.

With me being bored and got some lovely fog ducts from @trackspec197 I decided to acquire a fog light surround and some ducting to provide some much needed cold air to the v6 box
