Re: Pit project

Hi I need to reply to some of the comments. I do NOT live in the U.K. The pit will NOT become a swimming pool. The broken pipe is just rubbish that was left under the floor before it was concreted. The construction method is appropriate for the application. I am a builder with 30 years experience,1...

Re: ***TRACKDAY Mallory Park - Tuesday 29th December £119***

I have booked this track for both of us plus garage. It is the middle of winter after all. Obviously, happy to share with others on the day which for the moment only seems to be Ranjan and Nigel. Robert, Cancel that garage as they are useless and you will be at the other end of the circuit from Nig...

Hi All, (John) Vj4s0thername has persuaded me to join this one. So I've booked a spot and a garage. I'll share the garage with John ( and anyone else who wants to use ) Not done a track day for yonks in the car so may have a few questions for prep, but will check the FAQ's on track days first, as i...

Re: Corbeau Revolution Seat

Good morning from a warm and sunny Buenos Aires.

Guys forget about the seat, if Chris is not taking the trailer I do not want to take up his precious space with the seat.
I will UPS it to James when I get back to the UK, so sorted.

Thanks for all your help.

Hi Ranjan
Yes absolutely
If I’m not in just put it inside the porch please.
Graham,

A change in timing means I won’t have time to drop off the seat tomorrow so I will do it on the way back mid week if that is ok.

No problem
Just let me know when it is convenient and we will work something out.
Graham,

I am on flying duty on Sunday and will be going past your place; would it be possible to drop off the Corbeau seat about 11am ish?

Take care.

The last time I was at Donington Dec 2015 approaching Roberts at about 150mph, trying really hard to get heat into the slicks and into the oil when the ambient temp was 5 degrees.

Re: LC05VRY - 2005 Strato Blue 231

Thomas,

This is such sad news and I thought I had a bad time with my last RX8; you had it worse.

Take care and keep safe.
If you fancy driving a MX5 on track give me a shout.

If it helps at all I can store it at my place until a drop off/collection can be arranged. I can pick it up from Birmingham area as up there quite a bit. I just might take you up on this Graham as I will not be able to fit in in the MX5 on the way to Brands. Perhaps you could pass it on to Chris to...
