I've just booked this as a birthday present to myself.

Didn't get a garage, but will contribute if anyone else wants to join us and fancies one. They're massive from what I remember

Will look at hiring a Garage in due course, but all the time only one car can go inside, then an F1 Garage is too much money :!:

The £40 charge is for a space in the 6 car garage at Silverstone #-o , hopefully large mixing will be allowed by November 2021 [-o<

Just arrived home. The car made it back, but it didn't allow me my money's worth today. I'll do a comp test in the coming days, but given the way it was consuming oil, I think it's safe to say what the outcome will be.

It's a shame as it was a dry day and the track was a lot of fun. I only managed 2 trouble free stints and I was still getting to grips with the circuit.
I was aiming to get into the low 2:40s. My theoretical best was a 2.47, but i never got a clean or traffic free lap

Thanks to Ramesh for letting me have his spare oil. Didn't need it in the end. Having managed to burn 1L in 2 laps before after lunch, turns out it can make it a lot further when it's being limped home at under 3k rpm...

Got to decide what to do about a rebuild. Would love more power, but not convinced there's any genuine way of achieving it on a Renesis.

Sorry to hear this news Alan. Glad that you managed to limp home though. Having driven in limp mode myself, I know how challenging that can be.

There's no limp mode, but the car hesitates a lot over ~6k or so, and any visits to the to the top of the rev range will result in a big cloud of oily smoke shooting out of the exhaust. I got black flagged pretty quickly doing that....

Ouch. Sorry to hear Alan. Hoping it's something easily fixable but sounding a bit ominous....

Yeah, I think there's only going to be one outcome here. Tbh even though I was hoping it was just an oil burp, the penny dropped for me when my low oil light came on, and despite me hoping otherwise, I'm totally convinced having managed to burn through a whole lot in 2 laps before i got black flagged.

It's shame as today was shaping up to be a great day otherwise. Also gutted to have to miss Oulton in a few weeks as I've never driven there. Not even sure if I'll be up and running for Drive Limits in Feb once you consider running in mileage....
