Entry now confirmed for Sat.

Cannot find Loton on Race Chrono. Any ideas?

Go to tracks and click on "+"

It will bring the map screen up of where you are now. Find loton park on Map and add start line and finish line on map in the correct locations. You then save the track to your library.

TBH it's not that easy on a small screen. Might be easier to have a play with the App now to work out how to use it and do it on the day when you arrive at Loton.

Then you just need a good signal for it to work :roll:

Frustrating day results wise, but pretty consistent. I think this is the first time I’ve ever done my fastest run in P1. I managed to make mistakes in three subsequent runs. T1 should’ve been my best but I couldn’t find 3rd gear after Museum, dropping the best part of a second over P1 :twisted: . On a positive note it was fairly consistent with all four runs being within half a second of each other. I need more power 157bhp just ain’t enough! :lol:

Just had a look at the spreadsheet.

Peter 72.5 secs (18.25 pts)
Steve 66.12 secs (25 pts) (P1 65.85 :roll: )
TBC by comp secs.

Nick in his MR2 70.53 T1 and 70.45 P2

My best run :-



............and the one that got away



All in all I can't complain too much at being 8/10ths of a second down on last year's time with 40bhp less. Look for the positives :lol: :w

Not having been there for several years was very impressed with the new surface. Surely quicker. Not pushing hard enough everywhere but not unhappy with time. Quicker than my first year in the SS1,!

Thanks Jim I was looking for that photo! I was aware I was heading straight for the photographers!
Almost hit the apex. Just the wrong side of the car!

I must admit, I just copied it straight from Facebook and didn’t notice the post that you’d already hit :D

I hit one of those with my wing mirror at Harewood and took my timing strut off on the massive rumble strip at the same time! :oops:
