Hi Ed

You will see from the timetable we are the first practice session, and there is also a note to say you can sign on from 4 to 6 on the Friday if you want. Consequently, I am going to try and make it there about 6, but might not be there till a bit later.

I will be in the Mk4 as the engine is still out of the Mk2.

Well I'm up against a Tiger RS6 of stu Fenton, you take the p1$$ out of me for what I spend on my car (it's not as much as you think) but his engine will be more than my motorhome is worth, giving him 80bhp more so it will be fun trying to keep up.

Billy how do you fancy your chances of beating the GT3 in your moped powered creation?

Not a chance!

He's doing 1:01.5 laps in that Porsche.

Looking to have a good scrap with the Silouette Tigra, and maybe a couple of the Crossles.

Hi Ian

Not sure off-hand, but I have never got to grips with the GP circuit in the Mk4 as it hits the rev limiter in top just as you go under the bridge along Hanger Straight, from that point on you have to ease on the throttle to hold it just below max revs.

With regards the National circuit it has once done a high 1:05 but generally does very low 1:06's.

Hows your engine looking?

I reckon we are going to have a good race

I filtered the oil this morning and it all looks good the bits I saw in the oil were paint flakes that must have been in the oil drainer already

I still have no turbo though Mad

Good to hear they were not white-metal Very Happy
Those flakes probably got dislodged when you bumped that yellow car driven by that old git at Donington lol!

I don't care where I finish as long as I have a battle and learn something, not defeatist at all just an observation, i will try my best to beat the BMWs and if there is any chance of passing something with a Ford badge on it I'm all over it

I reckon we will be best hiding out the back of area 13 or maybe 12

That reminded me of a Scottish comedian who said about all the sports direct stores in Glasgow running out of baseball bats, but they still had plenty of balls left.
Made me chuckle
