Hi Raz

having spoken a little to Paul - I dont think I can afford it.

Maybe I have left it a bit late in life too - seeing as how I would need qualifications and medicals too....

Will have to be content with what I have unless my luck changes :lol:

Cheers

Steve

Had my medical :D , passed with a comment on being over weight :shock: ...the cheeky biatch!
Gonna try & get the ARDs in before the end of the year. Probably do the popular sprints and hopefully a couple of races.
Its basically like Paul commented on before, I have always wanted to race so if I don't do it now ('09) I will always regret it.

Absolutely mate, I say that to everyone: "Do it before it's made illegal!" :D
I would recommend Everyman Racing @ Mallory for your ARDS:

Hi Raz,

Had a look at the RACMSA website the other day and it does sound good, I think it could be a good place to race the SS1... I'd just have to balance it with doing as many Swinging Sixties races as possible.

Steve,

A season of racing doing 6 races has cost me similar to my championship winning year of 13 events inc travel etc, getting the licence, medical etc was around £500 all in..

Chris,

Good lad 8)

Okay Paul, provisional calendar for '09 includes Rockingham, Mallory, Croft, Lydden, Cadwell & The Birkett (possibly 3 teams for the Birkett) 8)

Steve, will see you out in the SSSC next year then :D

Hi Raz

will be out with the SSSC next year with an improved car - but not the new car that is some way off.

It will give me a chance to run the new engine in :twisted:

Paul - how much did the racing itself set you back for 6 events - or have I misread your message ?

Cheers

Steve

Which of those are with CSCC this year Raz??

Yeah Phil hell of a lot of miles per £, I know they're different, but I do as many laps as an average season sprinting in one qualifying session, but there again a fuel bill for a race weekend is £100+ for racer and van on top of the £280 average entry fee so it's a big outlay every month, but no more than a 2/3 event month in the SSSC. So if you do 12 events it's not too much more to race...well that was my justification :wink:

Steve, I would say all in including travel and fuel for both cars £2.5k + a set of tyres, maybe two if you do Anglesey :lol:

Raz, Are they at the CSCC meetings again??
