Did first event with no real dramas.

Car went well.

They reveresed the Barkston heath sprint circuit so was like visiting a new track.

Was hoping it was the normal course so I could see had bad I was compared to previous attempts.....

Will post some pictures up later along with times

few photos from Woodbridge…….

Quite a fast track and the car did very well.

Struggled a lot with traction in most of the corners and a LSD is now my main priority I reckon I’d have gained 2/3 seconds a lap if I had one fitted.

Coilovers were on hardest setting and I need to raise the front by 15/20mm as it’s a tad too low as the third picture shows !

Soarers looking good there dave, ive got the 3g discs on mine, found the goodridge hoses make a big improvement as well for quite a small price, an worth it if you've not got them

can recommend a good product if you want to change that baby poo colour interior as well ;)
