Don't forget to zero your odometer.
Think I did nearly 40 miles at one curbs test day.

Oh come on Darryl.

Because when all the TI's are broken you'll still be going.
I thought you would appreciate that comment 😂

CVH's rev higher than Ti's anyway :w so you can hold 2nd gear instead of this 2nd/3rd/2nd/3rd gear malarkey..

So i haven't heard anything from the exhaust man despite a couple of calls so I'm pretty confident I wont have my car ready. (I need at least a couple of weeks after it comes back to get her roadworthy. ) I'd have a beer instead but i've given up alcohol for lent.... :roll: :roll:


Is we sideways yet...

Sorry you wont be there Mike.

Just so people are aware I was trying to get a friend/colleague to bring a car along but he decided not to. However he and a friend are going to come along anyway. So if we have a couple of non drivers with us on the day that will be Les Lease and Nigel Poyser. They can always help with the timing!

Thanks to Peter for sorting today out.

Car went well on the slicks so just a bit more work to do and we are ready for our first event.
