any news on this yet ?
Just got the last piece of the pricing jigsaw and hopefully we can get the thread live over the weekend. As per last year Club stand Bookings will be direct with the circuit using our club code and exclusive track session places will be booked through the club shop.

Re: Coils

Unlike a piston engine the rotary spark plugs do not project into the combustion chamber so I wonder how the small hole for the trailing plug will fair with the huge plasma spark.

Re: Coils

That look seriously bright and hot, how long before the electrodes burn away would be my concern.

Re: The Japanese Performance Show 2019 - Sun 18th August

Can you keep pushing him Nigel on the inside stand availability. Sounds like he his waiting for one of his preferentials to give him some confirmation before committing to us. Otherwise surely it is first come first served? In previous years I have alternated getting information and confirmations f...

Re: Rebuild following a blown side seal

Thanks for the advice all, very useful. I have ordered a COFS from RR but he does not have any of the SOHN items in stock. A similar one from eBay are dammed expensive once you add in the cost of postage and import taxes (50% extra). Does anyone have advice where I could purchase similar plastic co...

I just check the level at each fill up, on track I check aft...

Re: After track day lots of grinding!

After looking back on the group buy (over 18 months ago I believe) and having had no customers report uneven pad taper wear, I’d hazard a guess this is a one-off. The calipers should have been set up as trailing edge calipers (the smaller piston being the first piston on rotation with the larger as...

Re: After track day lots of grinding!

It does say the the design is “based on” the AP caliper which means it is not a replica/duplicate so whilst visually it looks the same the working bits clearly are a different spec from what has been posted.

Re: The Japanese Performance Show 2019 - Sun 18th August

I did not request an indoor stand last year but, naively perhaps, did not check to ensure we had the same space out front as the previous year.

Certainly we can request an indoor space for this year so keep your hopes up.
