SMRC Celtic Speed Mini Cooper Cup - Race 2

Daft mistake, slid wide at clarks and into gravel allowing a bunch of cars to breeze by. Still good fun though.

Love reading folks post-meeting write ups on here Smile

Does make me massively jealous of that 'buzz' though.

Lots of thinking and sums to be doing over the winter I think.

That looked like brilliant fun! Well done Lowell Smile I think, with a few races under your belt, the gaps will just get bigger. Those Minis look a bit perky!

They are not shy of sticking it up the inside, the outside, pretty much anywhere, I had to really wrestle the car through the corners, like I said it has that much grunt it makes life easier!

On the correct slicks the car will be amazing, the second half of race 2 I was all over the place! Laughing

Lowell,

Just watched the vids. Looks like you had an absolute ball! Very well done. Some really nice clean and conscientious driving with great awareness of what's going on around you, particularly near the start of race 2. I look forward to seeing more vids as you gain experience. That's a really quick car you have there and the times will keep coming down. Some track tuition will also get you seat time with a pro on a near empty circuit which I found invaluable.

Congratulations on getting your licence and first races under your belt and all the best for next season.

I'd imagine you'd be easy into 53's next year (early). You can give a lot of throttle and brake a lot later... they just take seat tiime and trust in the car. 888s prob the better option of tyre for first outing Very Happy

Leslie's to the chicane feels the biggest area for improvement!
