That's great Mark. It will be good to see how Phil gets on with front wheel drive after ripping the tyres off all those AMG Mercedes.
Hope to be able to come along to get some good photos of the car in action :)

Hi Mark, Snetterton & Brands are a bit far for me but can probably get to Silverstone if you need pit crew help again. Might be able to persuade my photographer brother in law to join us too. Let me know if you plan to do Mallory Park again, or indeed Donington or Oulton

Great Simon,


We are testing this Thursday, 24th March at Snetterton if anyone is around they are welcome to pop in. Don't think you will need a ticket, will confirm here when I know.

Successful day testing on Thursday, luckily Phil got a good few laps in the car before the rain came and he seems well at home in there.
Riku had a little scare on the afternoon's wet track and was very lucky not to hit anything
other than that the only issue was a lost alternator belt.

Great 1st race of the season and 1st race with us for Phil Gardner who handled the pressure really well, remained cool about it and brought the car home at the end in good shape having set ever decreasing lap times.
Out of 29 cars we came in 13th with a class win (opposition a Lotus Exige)

12987222_10153559950907473_8407620150984090737_n.jpg


Video of whole race here: https://youtu.be/BAUAf1qohOo

good dicing with a TVR at the start, pit stop at 21mins and Phil dealing with Pumas and then caught by the leaders at 34mins.

Only major issue was Ricky loosing a door mirror, ably sorted out by Simon Gamblen with a quick visit to Halfords- thanks.

Silverstone next on April 30th

We are at Silverstone this Saturday (30th April). No spare tickets I am afraid but sure its not too much to get in. Lots of other racing going on and all on the small national circuit so using the old pits and start line.
Our practice time is 10.20 with race scheduled for 15.00

Just a tenner on the gate or £8 in advance - excellent value! Looking forward to seeing you all again and meeting the new team members

Just had a look at the series schedule & see that it visits Anglesey on 23rd July - a great little circuit! I imagine that is probably a bit too far for you guys to travel, but it just occurred to me that it would be a great opportunity to make a weekend combined with Martin's proposed Turbodog Memorial Welsh Mountain run - any thoughts?
