Thank you!
Looks like it will be some rain over the weekend, so expect some tyre choice discussion too.
Wets really work but you need the wheels and space (and the money) to have them let alone lugging them about to the trailer on a damp Sunday afternoon.
A set of wets on suitable wheels would set me back ?3500.
However, it can rain quickly just before your run, during it or after it!
At Loton Park, it is normal for the rain to add 7 seconds to the dry run time.

Got to Prescott early to find we are in a different spot for a 3rd time, getting closer to the fringes of the paddock!
You need a single seater or a Locatorfield to be in the prime 'flat' area.


Just the 2 in the class as I said earlier, but Allan got the EVOMini back together after the heavy crunch at Barbon 2 weeks ago.


This would be a great shady spot if it was to be sunny!

Saturday, and practice only, 2 runs, possibly 3 with one more tomorrow morning before the task in hand starts.
It did not go to pan for several, including me!
Got about 1/2 way up the hill and changing from 2nd to 3rd and nothing, the gear lever was attached to fresh air quickly followed by a nasty scraping noise. Pulled into the rescue 'slot' just on the esses to get off the hill and puched deeper in to clear the other loonies charging the hill. A weld I had obviously expertly made all of 8 years ago had failed.


While waiting to be allowed to coast down the hill for a closer look I remembered I had Mk1 of this linkage still in my tool box, the failed one was a demon tweek to be better than Mk1.


Got the car into 1st manually and drove down the hillto the paddock and fitted Mk1 link. 15 mins later and we did a 2nd practice run with success, but the change is hard work, but worked.


Came home and welded FAR more expertly the broken parts and will fit them on the car tomorrow morning, not a big job at all.


Allan had a belt failure on his run and ruptured the oil pressure capillary tube out of the engine sensor, others had all manner of small issues.


Sign the cars are getting used!


Have not yet checked, but we might have missed the live stream for the day, but hope to be in business tomorrow.


Exciting times.
The 3 times this car has broken have all been at Prescott.


Today's weather was superb, cool, overcast, light breeze and dry, hoping for the same tomorrow.

Good solid day of nice hillclimbing in the Costswolds, fab weather and good racing.
Obviously came second to the EVO Mini, and came close to my pb.


Gear linkage now welded on the car very early this morning and feels great!

So that's where it is. Yet more great weather, unlike in other parts of England. Nice work there, good luck for the next one. Glad it's going well with the car now you've got the gear linkage sorted
