CTCRC Silverstone 8th / 9th May

All classes out including Pre 66 Classics, Post Historic Touring Cars (Pre 73), Group 1 Touring Cars (Pre-83's), Pre-93 Touring Cars and the very exciting Classic Thunder/Ford Boss with an eclectic variety of cars (Rob are you bringing Harry out?) so some good exciting racing guaranteed to be had on the day. I will be in Post Historics in the yellow Camaro. Most racing will take place on the Sunday as all quallies will be done on Saturday.

I've entered this, a bit mickey mouse circuit/duration wise but a good shakedown race, and I can re familiarise half the circuit for the following weekend at least.

actually I'm looking forward to seeing if my testing pace has any bearing on race pace and whether I've kept up with anyone else over the winter

last time I did the national circuit Arthur was 7 weeks old, it was his first race meeting . . . .

I got back to the pits and there was a hum in the tow car . . . . Mrs Zef pulling funny faces and pointing at the nappy bag . . . . happy days!!!!!!

Indeed I do Al . . . the yellow beast was there as well, I had terminal understeer. bald tyres, toe out and struggled racing a mini miglia!

at least I didn't set much of a lap time to beat!

Did someone call?

Would I be out on the 8th/9th May - don't know. The way things are going, no.

IF I get time this week, I'll have the sump back on, but I still have a fair bit of work to do before I can test it.

I'd like to see some of this series...but we're at Brands......probably wave at you as you travel back down South and we travel back North, on Sunday evening.....

Have a good weekend - see your weather forecast is much the same as ours...Saturday light rain, Sunday Grey cloud......fortunately we've got qually and race on Sunday, unlike some of the CSCC fraternity

Just got home, we where going to stay, but in Typical fashion it was cold, wet and windy, Standard Silverstone basically.

Circuit was dreadful this morning, greasey as hell and pitted/rutted on the old circuit, which is again typical I think? then uber grip on the new bit . . . . which was the club straight! It really highlighted that my car is way too stiffly sprung, and my rear tyres are 3 years old! I struggled like hell to turn in and was feathering in 3rd through Woodcote it was handling so badly . . . hey ho, no major dramas, Q5 of 21 I think

it dried out through the morning then started raining 15 minutes before our race ( yee ha!) I sat on the grid spinning my wheels for a few seconds while a load of minis drove off with the front 2 rows . . . once I got going I quickly passed the minis on the straight, and past Richard Spriggs Anglia, which was ploughing on ( we all did it at least ten times at Becckets, woeful piece of tarmac, probably as much grip on the grass!) and was briefly running 3rd . . . . Richard got past me a lap later as I just couldn't get any power down from Brooklands all the way through to the finish line, it was all over the place, thereafter I was on my own, slowed a little, nothing in my mirrors but stayed awake to finish 4th.

a combination on my crap suspension on a crap surface with crap weather sort of dissapointed, but I can't complain at 4th overall, unsuprisingly a mini won,

I will be tweaking to make sure I can at least attempt to beat that Anglia again at Brands next month. good behaviour all round, I was probably as guilty as anyone of frightening slides.

Commiserations to Nick in the Anglia, popped a fuel pump fuse on the grid! Bring on Brands, a far superior race circuit

would have been nice to stay for the BBQ, the atmosphere was good and relaxe, meeting well run, just typical Silverstone weather got in the way

See, Joe, that's what happens when you get too much power out of the engine department ...
