Re: Monza 24th Nov...

Guys because of the worsening situation in Hong Kong and the way it is impacting some of my business interests here I am having to stay here to sort it out; so I will be unable to attend Monza.

Re: Monza 24th Nov...

Just to reiterate, this is open to anyone who will be in the area like Pete; do not plan a trip especially to do this because if it rains it will be called off. I am going with a supercar group and we do not use our cars in the wet for obvious reasons. I am taking a car I have never used in the rain...

Re: ^^^TRACKDAY, Mallory – Saturday 9th November @ SOLD OUT^^^

That just means you were in too high a gear in the 8 [-X Dave, there is no way you can use 1st [-X If you want to know why Mallory has this fixation about tyre squealing noise it is because of the hairpin. The great things about the hairpin is that it has a positive camber and it is very tight so t...

Having watched a few of these vids, and previously only gone around Mallory on a bike, here're my observations:- - the back "straight" seems to be a different shape than I remember - the hairpin isn't as tight as it was - the track surface is in much better condition. but then that would have been ...

Re: Buying an R3 v2

Definitely give BigPete a ring as New Duke has suggested he reinstalled my aircon a few months back.
The battery change is a simple one so don't worry about that either.

Alan, on the basis of the BBC forecast, I've just taken off my Federals and fitted my Rainsports. I'm not going to bother bringing my Feds, so if it's dry I'll be doing short stints to prevent the Rainsports overheating! Yeah the overheating issue is the main reason I'm still considering packing th...

Weather looks awful for the whole day.
Do we have any weather protection or are we all going to be in the canteen all day.

You guys who think driving in the States is easier on cars have a halcyon view based on too many Route 66 films. IT'S MURDER.... THE HEAT. THE TRAFFIC. THE BAD DRIVING STANDARDS. Also, their attitude to the RX8 is a lot more informed in certain ways; there is a group of racing instructors here in Ca...

Re: Warning NoN Rotary Race Car Sale

Guys,

This is a really good way to start racing in a reasonably cost-effective way and with the added benefit of having a car with proven track record….it does not get better than this.

So, if you have had any sort of a bug to start racing take the plunge.

Unfortunately
Can’t use the R3 as the Mrs is using it and my other option is having a full day at Silverstone on the Friday so cannot commit it to Saturday as well.
Why don't you hire a car for her for the day and use the R3?
