Brands Hatch Media Day Thursday 27th Feb

Post by Clive » Sun Feb 23, 2020 11:22 am

If anyone wants to see lots of saloons and single seaters that will be Racing on MSVR tracks in 2020, come along and have a look for free.

I will be there with the Race car representing Track Attack and Banzai magazine who will be sponsoring the Nippon series this year.

I have attached the program and garage layout for anyone interested.

Unlike the last outing at Brands, I am hoping for dry weather so I can test my new Advan slicks.

Thanks to Adam for organising the Baznzai stickers ( adam.galtress@gmail.com )

Cars in the garage at Brands along with the Ferrari's and Radicals etc, ready for the Media day tomorrow. Malcolm is coming along with his super dupa camera so there should be some excellent pictures of the day out on Friday.

Thanks go to Adam (AG Vinyl Stickers) for getting the Banzai stickers done that will go on all the Nippon Cars in Tack Attack, plus the Rotary Powered sticker as I thought it was about time we told the world "its a Rotary"!

Still planning on getting down to this event for a few hours at least. Fingers crossed for the weather here though, we've got snow forecast for the early hours :(

Exiting from our cul-de-sac, uphill in snow, by anything other than AWD car can be an issue if it's the wrong type of snow ;)

We've had a collection of delivery vans stuck at the bottom of our road at times. They get down OK, but not back up!

Eek. I forgot about this. I'd quite like to drive down for a few hours and shoot some video of your car Clive (and would be happy to send you footage). Happy to hover discretely behind Malcolm ;)

What's the etiquette for today? Is it a closed invite/ticket affair? Or do visitors have a shot at parking nearby and getting into the paddock?

Advice from Clive was to park up by the main grandstand and walk through the pedestrian tunnel to get to the paddock. AFAIK it's a free event, no tickets and free access to paddock. I'm going to try and get down by ~11am

May see you there :thumleft:

Thanks Malcolm. Got back from the school run and a migraine is coming on full steam so I'm going to take some pills and get to bed. Sorry I won't see you. :(

Clive, hope it goes well. I'll PM you soon. Would be good to get some footage of you and the car doing your thing another time.

:-k I still don't understand how you manage the understeer, with the rear and roof being so much slower than the rest for the car :lol:

:scratch: Is that why you had to paint the front splitters blue :roll:

:thumright: Good decision Haydn :lol: hope you are feeling better now.

Spent a few hours in the freezing wind at Brands Hatch earlier - have a lot of pics and video to sort, but won't be able to do that until after this weekend ;)

A teaser for now:

Huge thanks to Malcolm for braving the cold to give support.

The day was about the MSVR launching the 2020 season with all the series associated with their tracks.
You can see a car representing each with the grid shot below where I represented the Track Attack Series.

The cars running great and had a good session in the morning driving in the rain, stuck slicks on for the afternoon but it was way too cold and damp to switch them on.

Also here's some of the other Track Attack cars that were there.

Ahh but I like the wet ;)

BTW Many thanks Malcolm.

Wow those tyres shift some water!

I'm no areodynamasist but it looks like the diffusers working well and lifting water

As suggested on here, we did a little walk around the car to give some info.

Excellent stuff gents and getting Clive on camera is a major achievement Malcolm. Only a Snow Leopard is harder to catch on camera!
