I need new boots. Unfortunately, PlaysKool, which used to do FIA approved ones for 30 have discontinued them. Headtec do very similar ones for 50 but their non-FIA. Best I can do from the other usua ...

Oh yeah - just remembered - I saved about 2kg switching to an ali rad. Was a standard VW Polo one before (steel/copper?), but when I replaced it the "OEM Alternative" from Dingbro was alumin ...

I know it's off topic a bit, but I found very good lap-time gains through some basic aero mods to my Westfield (230bhp redtop, 570kg).
The vast majority, I suspect, was from a front-to-rear flat floo ...

Bit of a rubbish weekend from me, thanks to some stupid set-up mistakes.
But not as rubbish as for poor Matt Chisholm, who ended his weekend like this: https://www.facebook.com/MattChisholmRacing/vi ...

With so much new wiring (and some temporary chocolate box connectors), I was convinced it mu ...

Nothing like leaving it to the last minute...

On Monday, the Westie was sat lifeless, having not turned a wheel in over 8 months. New ECU wired and fitted, sensors all calibrated, clutch adjusted, ...

any banter from the weekend?

Not sure what was going on over with the S&S, but the FFs were pretty crazy. 20+ cars out in the nationals, lots of accidents, a new lap record, protests and appeal ...

I'll be out with the Formula Fords. First proper outing for the new car - just hope we've worked through *all* the loose nuts and bolts now!

Hopefully we should see a few more folks on the grid for ...
