First timed run. I'm calling it mildly moist :roll: :w

Managed to take to the grass just before Loggerheads :oops:



Next run was my best chance to do something good as the track was perfectly dry, but I cocked it up at turn 1 when the car wouldn't turn in. Trying to carry too much speed and locked up the fronts :oops:



Anyway, cobwebs blown away. Note to self, must get my act together for Ty Cross. :evil:

On a positive note, when I play the videos simultaneously, I can see how much quicker I was from Triangle to the top on the 2nd run. Now I HAVE to do Loton again in July :D

works on my phone but not on my laptop due to that security issue thingy.

Interesting to see your gear selections. You stayed in 2nd round the first left hander I think. Pretty sure we took third and then quick change back to 2nd in the Sabre.

In the DET we are taking 2nd on the second part of the S's and take 4th up cedar straight; they might be gearing differences though

Craig, If you click the YouTube link in my signature, it'll take you to my channel and these vids.

Steve, yes there's a gearing difference. My big fat 60 profile 13" tyres take the rolling radius to the same as the 15" wheels with 50 profile, whereas your 45 profile on 13s lowers the gearing quite a bit. I think I'll get some 225 45 13 R888 when I've worn this set out, as I preferred the lower profile on the hills.

Entry posted for the 15th July.

Can't quite manage the double header, so opted for day 1. Didn't want to do day 2 with those that had already been practicing on the Saturday :lol: :wink: :w
