You offshore?

If so, prob the firewall/security settings for their network.


Yip.

Yeah most likely. I got the results 10-15 mins after so not too bad i guess.

soo unfortunately I had a mixed day Smile In testing I managed another .5 off my best dry time and in qualifying faster in wet as well and was feeling good...
Race 1 - It was quite wet/cold and I managed 3 laps and then binned it into a tyre wall :/ Radiator needed replaced and I will need a new bumper/bonnet. And feeling a bit sore today but 100% glad HANS is mandatory!
Race 2 - Was dry and learner a valuable lesson. Just because there are two cars in what you classify as a 'dodgy position' just off track do no presume safety car will not go away. I left a stupidly large gap after going round twice and when it restarted was caught lagging behind
Race 3 - was all good and just need to get footage together.

Overally need more bum in seat time and getting to stage where I think some focussed tuition will really help.

0.5 off times is a huge gain in a Mini Very Happy Keep it going

Whats your PB Dry/Wet now?

So I entered this even though I'm only meant to be doing Enduro... A deal on an ST came up that was worth taking for me!

Qualified 2nd to give me this view on the front row, not bad for first time in the car - https://youtu.be/sUs0SolgXc8

Race 1 was pretty uneventful as far as racing goes. Had great fun pushing the ST to the limit. Did ok considering first time driving in the rain bar qualifying - https://youtu.be/HNDFp5pA3pA

Race 2 in the dry. Started off as being the best race of my life. Got past Wayne MacCaulay, then Kevin got past me due to me not being aggressive enough closing the door up the straight. Then I had a split second decision whether to dive up the inside into MacIntyres as I had the run on him, ended up not having enough room so avoided contact, which meant I had to try and stop on the still wet grass... Almost got it but ended up in the barrier. Go Pro ran out of battery unfortunately but hoping to get hold of Kevins which will have all the racing in it.

Ohh and I got the fastest lap time of the day, 1:02, the lap record is 1:01.7 Cool

1:04:77 in dry and in wet 1:10 ish I think. Started to take more of kerb on chicane so more mini-esque. At least I can keep up with the back :p The problem is that every race day so far has been wet and I haven't had a test or track day in wet Sad

Thanks very much Adam! I keep beating myself up about the 2nd race, but there are plenty of positives from the weekend, not to mention silverware!

When you next out again?

I know the feeling... last time out, Pole first race, missed a gear... spun, back up to 3rd/2nd then DNF through feckin oil on screen. Race 2 into first and a tiny tech issue and over sensitive settings on ECU killed the engine (killed as in stopped, not dead).

Gaaah!!

Car is working, but so am I :/ Smile

... next round I'm in the UK for Smile

Well, better weekend than the April round [not like that would be hard right enough!]

Some good close racing, from where I was sitting, should make for some great TV.

Not sure yet. We replaced the tank, all the pipes and pump.

Haven't cracked the old one open yet but it makes noises when you stand on it and a known good tank does not Laughing
