RACE - Silverstone Sat Aug 19

Post by droberts » Sat Aug 05, 2017 8:47 am

New actuator fitted... fingers crossed no further problems :roll:

Its on the Silverstone International circuit with 750mc Roadsports. 45min race +1 lap. James is working again, so I'll be doing both stints.

Hope to see some of you there.

Cheers
Dave

Good stuff guys (no probs H - good luck with build). I'll post qualy and race times when I get the timetable through.

New race silencer going on this week, so may be testing at Donny on Friday evening too.

Okay looks like James will be racing with me on Saturday after all, so we'll be swapping drivers at the pit stop. And yes pit monkeys definitely needed (thanks Jimm, Add, Martin) :D

750MC is on the International circuit (don't get confused, as BRSCC are also there but on the National circuit).
We'll be in garages 17-25 in the new wing.

Qualifying (25 mins)
750MC Cartek Roadsports Series 10.30

Races 
1 Tegiwa M3 Cup + 330 Challenge & SCC 18mins+1 lap 11.50
2 Tegiwa Civic Cup 18mins+1 lap 12.25
Lunchbreak 
3 Ravenol Formula Vee Championship 13mins+1 lap 1.45
4 Raceparts Historic 750 Formula 13mins+1 lap 2.15
5 750MC Cartek Roadsports Series 45 mins 2.45
6 Royal Purple Hot Hatch Championship 13mins+1 lap 3.45
7 Demon Tweeks/Yokohama Classic Stock Hatch Championship  13mins+1 lap 4.15
8 Tegiwa M3 Cup + 330 Challenge & SCC 18mins+1 lap 4.45
9 Tegiwa Civic Cup 18mins+1 lap 5.20

We're up against 13 cars in class B including Porsche Boxster S, 968, Golf GTI's, Focus, Leon, Ginettas, Civics, S2000, MR2 Turbo, and of course the odd 3-litre M3. I'm doing some testing tomorrow to make sure things are okay, and learn the new part of the circuit.

Cheers
Dave

:wav:
Testing went well today. Turbo not quite as good... used to get solid 1bar... now peaks at 1 then solid 0.8. Put in bleed valve now solid 0.9-0.95

Really pleased with James today... he was on the pace straight away and ended up 0.4 up on me 😁

Looking forward to Saturday... hopefully we shouldn't be at the back of the (full) grid... 44 cars!

After all the trouble I've had this year, finally, "she's alive!"

Hoping to have four spare tickets, but we pick them up Saturday, so phone James or I when you get to the circuit... if Add or Jimm are there, I'll leave it to them to distribute, but yes, one reserved for you Martin (let us know on the day if you can't make it).

Not sure on pit-stop tasks, as Mr Gee is in control, so don't do anything without asking Gary (or you'll feel his wrath :o )

We are both going to be racing at Rockingham on 9/10th Sept too... depending on how Saturday goes we may try the 2-hour Enduro at Rockingham.

I've realised I am technically double booked :(

However, if Tom and I can sort out the gearbox for the Cerbera in the morning we'll be up for the race. I really need the box sorted and out of the way so that has to come first but plan is to do both...

Hi folks, thanks so much for supporting James and I today... brought back some great memories seeing you cheer on the orange Tomcat and prep the car for the race.

And what a great race. We finished 5th in class out of 13 and 18th overall out of 44 cars. James did well in his first race, but more importantly we got the joint result I've been hoping for... and it felt great 8)

We have some good in car footage, and I'll post a detail report tomorrow, but for now James summed it up.... Cloud 9 :D
