Re: Essex Rotary

Re: What have you done to your RX-8 today????

Did a buy. Continuing with the genuine Mazdaspeed parts, was never my original intention for the car, but I guess I'm running with it now.

Re: ***TRACKDAY Brands Hatch - Friday 4th December SOLD OUT***

Ray did say he though the throttle had jammed open at some point Actually suggested by two separate marshals, although possibly my foot slipped alongside the throttle pedal attempting to brake.

Re: ***TRACKDAY Brands Hatch - Friday 4th December SOLD OUT***

Spent some time over the weekend reflecting on the crash and viewing Simons video evidence. With each outing in the MX5 I spent a couple of laps keeping out of everyones way just learning how the car handled and especially determining the levels of grip and traction through the corners in changing c...

Re: ***TRACKDAY Brands Hatch - Friday 4th December SOLD OUT***

After my off the marshal mentioned a rise in the track surface exiting Clearways and onto the straight causing the rear to go light. Never experienced or felt it before in an RX8 but was evident in the MX5. Should have served as a warning.

It could be argued that both travelling and accomodation at Brands Hatch is for educational purposes :^o as you are attending to improve your car control and receive tuition by following (albeit following around) others example :twisted: .

However outdoor pursuits may well go ahead as the emphasis is on indoor entertainment etc. So fingers crossed as this will be subject to MSV's/MoT's interpretation of the rules.

Re: What have you done to your RX-8 today????

Mine went this way Chris and were replaced with conventional brake discs from some that Aston had in stock. Not sure of the make but were not anything special and easily available.

It would appear that since I refrained from wishing you good luck before races that you have been having great success, so maybe it wasn't Christine at fault but a Jonah #-o . What a great season and no less than you deserve :thumleft: .
