Ok, I know it's a month away but finally I'll get to race my new toy. First time out in a race since Goodwood when I was Captain Slow.

Having moved the steering wheel I can actually turn it now and at Donington running the post historics, I was under three secs off the slick tyred pace from the May meeting.

We can run slicks with MRL the trouble is the tyre diameter is so small I was pulling fifth during testing at Mallory the other week so I'm afraid I'll be running Yokos, just to keep close to a reasonable ratio. Not a good thing but hopefully we can build a new rear axle for next year.

We've got the logistics sorted too.

So, hotel booked for an eight day break, flights booked so all sorted.

Looking forward to it.

Who else is going?

Well done Peter, you definitely need a low (numerical) diff for the circuit. Canary pulls 8.5k in top using 4.1 and 21.5" tyres.

Despite the sick engine in new car, will still be there. (Would have likely needed a 3.7 diff, from test at Goody.) Can concentrate on the karting instead! Like several others, will be at Jerez w/end before and celebrating birthday somewhere in between! Think Delta has arranged for our trucks to stay at a caravan park somewhere close to the beach. Hope they know what have let themselves in for......

I think we have a 3.9 at the moment. Good for the higher profile rubber we have for Goodwood, no good for the miniscule slicks. Hence the yoko selection.

For the RS2, yokos are smaller diameter than the Avons, if the former are 185/60s. I had them on testing (at Goodwood) last week, and felt could do with taller gearing! Sure that's not the reason engine went sick....

I hope you enjoy the AIA circuit, it is near top of my favourites. It will feel strange not racing there this year!

It's really a compromise between stickiness and diameter. The original slicks in period were a pretty deep section so the post historics/D84 size would be best. However if I'm to get some better grip the most suitable for size is the Yoko.

I'm certainly looking forward to it and any assistance/advice will be greatly received. I've booked the test day on the Thursday although I don't expect to run every session.

Its a fantastic track peter. Takes a lot of learning.I'm sure me or mike will come out with you and show you the way. there are two super blind corners.

Iain,

Excellent, we'll be there from the Tuesday evening. Will take you up on the walk.

Good luck this weekend.

Latest news is that as usual, trucks and other transport will not be allowed in until Wednesday eve, and then only if testing Thursday! This is a major minus for the circuit, as understandably most people are not prepared to leave trailers etc parked up outside for one or two nights. There are no facilities and (unless changed) the parking area is unsecured. Different to Jerez week before, where vehicles are taken inside the main gate and parked in a holding area if necessary. I expect there will be usual battle with security at AIA Wednesday before, which is not what you want when the majority will have transported 1500 miles to bring cars to their facility.......

Not seen a list yet. I leave Dubai next Friday, then to Portimao on the Monday (not Tuesday). Come and say hello - Group 1 SD1 Sunday Express.

Thanks Peter
The website appears to be a little on the optimistic side. Suggesting F1 masters and Sportscar Masters. Pre 65 f1 etc Are these correct?

Anyhow looking forward to it

No masters grids. Certainly MRL, GTSCC, FJ and a Histo F1 race, hoping that some of the car from Jerez will join in.
