What an impressive time from Josh, well done and perfect consistency too, suggesting you're getting the maximum out of the car!!

must admit, and no offence to all the other talented drivers (myself excluded) Josh's crossovers were sublime. Git. :D

For those that know Terry Hedley and Jane Hibbert, their competing and overheating BMW 328 did get them home safely after overheating badly down at the start area sunday, its having the fan switching investigated so fingers crossed nothing major :-)

I think the limiting factor was the very worn two year old tyres, but still quicker than last year]

I was shocked when Trevor said his tyres were 5 years old, no bloody wonder he wasnt troubling Josh! Gotta be 1.5-2secs easy on fresh rubber on Rocket and maybe .75s on yours Corky given the less power but 'only' 2yr old rubber. The Oakes are smart and have at least one new set a season, pretty much essential for a proper campaign imho.

Your Sabre looms very well sorted for a road car though Steve, be mega on the road or track 8)

I reckon there's at least a second or more to be had at some venues by dropping to a 45 profile on 13" wheels (currently on a 60 profile). Next year I'll probably be on 225/45/15 R888. The lower gearing just hits the sweet spot for Curbs and the hills, but not so good for Ty Croes.

The Sabre has been "mega" this year. I've picked up five class wins and beaten some much more powerful machinery :D . Hopefully everything I've learn't from the DET and this car is being decanted into the SS1 for next season :mrgreen:

My thoughts too. The soundtrack on Steve L's video is fantastic.

Actually.....our tyres were 2015 vintage BUT they were almost unused at the beginning of the season. But for the engine failure I would have needed a new set for Curbs as the set we used would have been well cream crackered by now :)

Yes it make a lovely noise when you are sat behind it in the start cue. Can I request a gearing handicap for next year...the louch car needs far fewer gear changes than the small sports :mrgreen: Put it in the AOB list for the AGM CNH (Craig will know what I mean :) )
