Another great weekend in great company !

Yes, chasing the Z4 was good fun. I also had a 350Z in my class, and I was neck and neck with that too. We were all fighting for 2nd place (seven in the class, over 2lts), as first place was unachievable against and Audi TTS Quattro. I came away 3rd in class (in front of Z4 but a fraction behind the 350z), which I was pretty happy with in that company.

I'll post the Scimitar results as soon as I've fed the numbers into the spreadsheet.

We've got loads and loads of photos (Thanks to Tom) and plenty of in car video to post.

My car was a different animal to last year. More power but way less grip moving to the 1A Tyres. I pretty much matched my times from last year, but it took some doing, the car was sliding around all over the place. Better on handicap though, so I'm calling it a success.

A real mixed weekend for us.

Saturday went pretty well for me I managed to improve my PB by over 3 seconds and broke 130 seconds with a 129.2. Josh however recorded similar times to last year (124) despite our reduced weight, increased power and using slicks (on some runs). We actually reckon that the kumho's are just as quick as the slicks based on a few runs Saturday.

Sunday was a different story :( On the my first run of the day I detected a slight misfire near the top end but wasn't sure if it was the limiter. Josh reckoned we had an issue based on his first run and we checked the plugs and went back to low boost. On my next run the car cut out and I had to be recovered. After some messing Josh discovered a failed earth to the ignition relay which he repaired and the car sprang into life. Happy days or so we thought. Josh went out and and it was still misfiring. Josh made a more permanent repair with an earth back to the battery and all seemed well but on my next run the misfire was still evident so we put the car on the trailer and came home :(

Was hoping to get there but back issues meant I couldn't have stood and watched really :cry: but I'm on the mend.

Glad to hear you all had fun and good work for matching 1B times on 1As Corky, that's a fair bit of forward development to do that!

A couple of videos from Saturday

First video is me falling off at the finish line. If you look carefully in the back ground as I pull back onto the track you'll see Ben spinning off in sympathy.



This is my best timed run:-

Cracking event, first time I have done the international circuit.

Very impressed by Brian,s times in a roadgoing GTE. Got a few helpful tips from corky. Thanks to all for use of the garage. I hope both Steve ‘s problems are not too serious and solved before their next events.

MR2 going ok. Easier now with a proper harness and some slightly better tyres.

I've emailed the CM Compsec as I'm certain they've calculated my handicap incorrectly. It should be 91.38% and not 92.23%, based on the published algorithum. It's basically 100kg out, so probably just a typo whilst inputing the data. This would give me a handicap time of 99.35 secs for the Sunday, no place changes but a points increase, and 124.48secs for Saturday which would move me up a place and a points increase.

I was struggling to understand why I was 1.1% over Ben when we have very similar power/weight figures. So I did the maths. Hopefully they'll agree with me.

Good work guys, decent times all round there. Looks like you had a good weekend for it weather wise too.

Glad the cars going well Steve, thats a real result; going faster on a lower handicapped tyre.

Gutted that you had running issues Steve O. Does the ECU have a good earth? If its anything like the Omex in mine, the ECU switches the earths, so the switch side of everything is grounded via the ECU.

I'd concluded much the same - they're Michelin circuit slicks arnt they? (think mine were S310 compound) so longer to warm up but once up to temp theyll last much much muuuuccchh longer than the kumho etc. I always found that although the weren't any faster than a good 1C on a sprint (and probably slower on the hills where its even harder to warm them up) they were much nicer to drive on. From my recent digging into tyres, I'm pretty sure only Avon make slicks specifically for hill climbs and sprints (pirelli may be coming to the UK market soon), and only the only 1C available in specific hill / sprint compounds is the Kumho and Avons, so choice is pretty limited.

The cars still sulking in the garage at the moment.

We had an ignition relay earth issue which was fixed but still had a misfire.

I've not mentioned here that I had a mis fueling issue in Friday. I stupidly but V power of the Diesel variety in the DET tank.... :hand: :doh: :hand:

We did not run the car and drained tank and refilled with petrol. Car ran fine Saturday so thought all was OK

Not sure if our current issue is related or not but following advice from Craig plan to change plugs, fuel filter and fuel pump and will do a compression test. We will then take it back to the dyno.

Our slicks are Pirelli DMs. Seem to warm up quick; quicker than the Kumhos I would say but overall not much differance time wise.
