Have see your advert thingy in one of the local rags.

I have resorted to mugging to raise funds.
I show people a photo of the LA Gold, ask them id they know what it is, when they reply that it is "a car", convince them they are experts in motor racing and really must sponsor me.
Lord knows how Perry Mccarthy pulled it off

I promissed my body to medical science for a few quid.
But they made me promise not to

Was that my male seeks bendy woman who's good at keeping secrets ad. Or was it a Fullers Forestry and Landscaping ad?

Have given a couple of tickets to someone in the village, and someone from work might be coming as well, so could do with a couple of extra tickets.

From looking at the finals, there are 32 listed racers, but Ed and myself are not on the list (late entry), so it looks like there will be 34 racers Very Happy

Also looks like there will be no green flag lap for the Saturday race, but there will be one for the Sunday race Exclamation

I'm looking at being there Friday night about 8:00

Ref' the green flag lap.
They may have got their admin confused.
Previously a green flag on the Saturday but not on the Sunday.

30+ cars on old tyres a Cadwell was great fun.

I will be there Friday sometime.

Ed ive got to be honest. I have never found the cold tyre argument to stand up that well. I get on the pace as soon as the lights go out.

I find its a good way of gaining places  whilst other people are waiting for the tyre's to warm up.

it was one of those phrases trackday organisers used to spout shit about to stop everybody crashing into each other in the first 10 minutes

not to be confused with cold conditions though thats a different ball game

750MC have previously not had green flag laps for cars that are not on slicks as it saves track time. However, I thought they had gone back to having them. I must admit though that the differences between Sat and Sun is a bit unusual. Anyhow, it will be a question to ask at the event.

Best racing I have had in a long while, what a difference a full grid . Of simular cars make.

1st race

Qualified 20th. I had a bad start followed by small bollocks resulting in me being in 25th by the end of the second corner! After alot of close racing finished 18th

2nd race

Qualified 18th. Slightly better start but still got to work on standing my ground, lost 5 places this time in the second corner! To be fair there where a couple of cars that had qualified out of position in both races and I would have never kept them behind for long. After some overtaking by a number of different techniques, slipstreaming on both straights, on the brakes in a couple of places and throwing dummies and re taking 1 car several times. So all in all chuffed and learnt a lot.

Finished 19th, doesn't sound great but it's the best racing I have ever had. (Apart from beating JD at Mallory, Anglesey, Oulton, etc etc... Very Happy
