Wicked day!.

In car vid below with Beav148 in the passenger seat. Chasing a Focus that kept pulling away from me on the straights. I finally got past then the git snuck past following two of those Westfield/Caterham things at which point Beav turns to me to tell me I'm far too polite :lol: Also back end steps out a bit on the last corner at 12.30

Good day all in all but looking back I could have pushed a lot harder and was braking far too early for some of the corners(all part of learning though).

I've got 2 witnesses(passengers) to kipps driving and both of them said he was either really talented or suicidal ! :-)
The driver of the polo turbo racing the jag has put the lap up on you tube were they both get black flagged ! It's good viewing !!

R'ash cars looking good in the pics ! Just a shame the photographer didn't catch you getting it on 3 wheels as it looked pretty spectacular when we were pushing each other :-)

:lol: yeah would have like to have seen it. How you rate your rsr's anyway? thinking of buying a set in 225 size for them rotas and doing away with swapping wheels over all the time. There's a site doing 225/45/17 at £85 inc vat and delivered!!

That's cheap might invest in some more at that price ! Can't fault them they've held up well to the track days I've done, just had issues with them rubbing on the rear trailing arms and inner quarters at oulton ! Had to strip the rear quarters down and clean and waxoyl them today :-(
