Re: 93 RX-7 FD Project

Well done for having the patience to strip and repair the parts to get your Mot :thumleft:

As above you will find the FD quite unforgiving on track compared to an RX-8, however Jon has given you some good advise already.

None announced at the briefing and none in evidence trackside and at the speeds I was capable of I had plenty of time for sightseeing. :oops:
When I was out there was a guy taking pictures up at Druids who looked like he was maybe "official"
Perhaps Nick will know?

Re: Clive's 520 BHP Super GT RX-8 Race Car

Proud to say I upheld Mazda Rotary Honour in 2019 and last night at the awards ceremony, I was presented with the trophy as a Track Attack Champion for the second year running. Funnily enough, it was Kelly (RX-8 owner) who presented my trophy and she did well, winning her class as well =D> Been a gr...

Many thanks to all. We are up to 91 subscribers not how many more we need to help the channel.

Thanks Shroom,

Not to good in front of the camera, but I see where your coming from.

Maybe a walk around with the GoPro inside and out of the car and a mention of the conditions on the day is doable :thumright:

Shroom, Thank you for the input.

Not too sure what you meant with this one ?

Would you ever expand on videos of the day?

Re: Clive's 520 BHP Super GT RX-8 Race Car

Out of interest, do you heal-and-toe during down changes? It's not that obvious from your in-car videos. Had there been a oil flag out from the Civic that dumped oil on the out side line, I wouldn't have ventured out there and the marshals told about oil as soon as I got out the car. However I was ...

Re: Clive's 520 BHP Super GT RX-8 Race Car

I now have the last part of the Donnington jigsaw. Coming out of Coppice I could have got under the leader but I risked taking him off, he then made one move to the right, which was fine so I decided to run down the out side to get a good run out of the Foggerty Esses and get him leading onto the st...

You Tube Channel Help Needed Please

As part of a package trying to gain sponsorship for 2020, I will be entering the RX-8 under the banner of Racing Beat Europe Motorsports Team. As many know my friend Philip (Prototype) puts a huge amount of effort into bringing you all the race video's he puts together. Sadly he gets very little sup...

Only 5 years!!!!!! But without your determination and skills of driving and enlisting the right experts it wouldn’t have come together.
Well done Clive, and all who helped, in making such an impressive car.
Thanks Chris, all down to that belief of the wonderful RX-8 that we all love :mrgreen:

Re: Clive's 520 BHP Super GT RX-8 Race Car

I know you mentioned a sequential box a couple of times this year as being part of the difference between you and the other top percentage of the pack. Yes, other than changing the tyres to a softer compound, which from tyre temperature information I know I am going to be able to run next year. Yes...

Re: Clive's 520 BHP Super GT RX-8 Race Car

I've just caught up on your videos after the weekend Clive, and I'm delighted you had such a 'good' result bearing in mind the DNF. Watching you carve apart that pack, especially in those conditions, was just sublime. What are the plans for next season, if you feel like sharing any? Many thanks for...

Re: Clive's 520 BHP Super GT RX-8 Race Car

Wow, just seen at the end how lucky Rich Hockley was as well, at least with front wheel drive there's half a chance of getting out of a rear end break away, where as you have zero chance with a rear wheel drive car like mine!

I hope it's only that cosmetic damage to the aero Clive. Very impressive racing as usual. It's been very telling all season how excited the commentators have been by your driving (and car).
