Pit crew wanted.... well not exactly but some help in the pits are required.
Riku and I will be racing in the CSSC Millennium series this year, the first race at least and then see how it goes
Details of the race series is on the CSSC site here
in short though, the races are 40 minutes long with a mandatory driver change during a pit stop "window" and as both of us are driving, we will need someone to co-ordinate the pit stop timing, hold out the pit board, time the stop as there is a minimum time limit and then see the car safely out of its pit stall.
Its not F1 so its pretty relaxed although fumbling with harness buckles etc will mean general panic but the other driver should be able to help with that, but you will need to be aware of the dangers of being in a live pit lane and, most importantly, be reliable and will turn up.What do you get in return?
not much really, but we will give you a free ticket to the events, feed you (track food only or whatever's available) and offer the chance to be involved in all the excitement of a race day. Lots of other racing will be on the same day including (for the first event anyway) modern classics, Jaguar sports and Gts and tin tops.
First race is Saturday April 11th at Snetterton and you probably wont need to be there until mid morning unless you want to, there is always wheel changing, cleaning and other stuff to do so we can keep you busy. As I said, its not F1, it may be wet and cold but hopefully it will be a fun and interesting experience which is the reason I do it.
provisional further dates are at Brands Hatch, Rockingham and Mallory Park. Don't know for sure what ones we will be doing as yet but will keep you updated.
anyone interested? let me know.
never thought I would want a list but now find myself needing one just to remind me: Clio V6 230, Clio cup racer (X85), Clio 200 (X98) clio 182 (X65) (Riku's), Renault sport twin turbo in Panorama blue (van), Spider (Xciting) Clio220 Trophy.
