johnh875 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Would the 10-year thing be in reference to pressure-testing the cylinder? Which may cost more than replacing it.

The MSA /MUK consider that the 10 year life is a purely commercial decision by Lifeline and not a technical requirement at all.

Thanks for all the replies, I'm not intending to race in europe at any point soon so my extinguisher should be fine for a while as long as I keep it serviced.

In reference to the transponder I've spoken to one of the Equipe organisers and I'll be hiring for the race in October then hopefully investing in my own in the new year.

On another note, how do I add my Avatar? I can't find it in my profile settings.

I made it through Scrutineering, completed practice and was delighted not to be the slowest out there! Unfortunately the race was a bit of a non event as at the start of lap 2 there was a biggish accident involving 2 cars which brought out the safety car for at least 15 minutes, during this period my Sprite developed a misfire and I pulled in to retire. I did manage an overtake on lap 1 though and thoroughly enjoyed practice and can't wait to go again.

You can't have an avatar until you submit (I think) 100 posts.

Well done, prepare to be seriously poor for the rest of your life!

Well done! Prepare yourself to have one part of your life full of thrill, new friends and a lot of stories to hear and tell. Money? Lets say its a "great" and deserved investment!

Congrats on getting your first event under your belt......you did better than my first event - the (shared) car broke down in first few laps of qualifying before I managed to get any laps in the car, and we hadn't the part to fix it!.



It can only get better.
