Took the car up to Crail at the weekend last time on this turbo.

Managed to get my times down to 16.052 @87.5mph and 60ft's down to 2.2 seconds. Still didn't make it down to the 15's but close enough i suppose. Managed to beat a Civic Type R and an A5 aswell as my mates Fabia TSI.

Also Registered for the first 2 rounds of the Scottish Road Car series at Ardeer on the 14th of April and Knockhill on the 28th of April. Should be interesting but i think with the turbo and it being a diesel it might struggle.

After that then the cars away to have its bigger turbo and intercooler fitted then mapped by ADE Tuning in Blackburn.

Can't wait to see how the next stage in this car goes

Before the new turbo goes on I've decided to give this motorsport malarkey a go and enter the first 2 rounds of the Scottish Road Car series, A sprint series for Road Legal cars which involves driving the car to the event and (hopefully) also driving home.

Should be interesting in a diesel hatch with a 2300rpm powerband and with grippy tyres that are so grippy the rear wheels wont lock on the handbrake.

First Round is at Ardeer this saturday with the next round being knockhill on 28th of april with a decent entry list. Bricking it doesnt cover it!

Yeah it’s pretty long geared. Got a feeling 1st is gonna be too short though and 2nd too long to be above the boost threshold.

First round of the Scottish Road Car Series today. Had fantastic fun with my mate Craig who was in his Leon Cupra Estate.

Spend a few times walking the course and it looks like you had loads of room till you actually drive the course! Shocked Started off on Course 2 Hit one of the pylons on the first run because i was being too fast and too aggressive. By run 3 i had slowed it right down which gave me more time to move the car and ended up faster. Handbrake doesn't lock the rears hence the oil tanker turning circle.

Run 1

Run 2
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8LG92bIi150

Run 3
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i4ZLDSkfNAs

Course 1 was much faster and and better for my car again kept it in first gear the whole run. Had issues with the Go Pro so only got 1 of my 3 runs

Course 3 was a combination of both course 2 which then went into course 1 absolutely love this.

Run 1

Run 2 last run of the day this time i had the confidence to go for 2nd gear at points. Should have done it earlier as on the run between course 2 to 1 and down the dip then back up it i was 5 mph faster!

Run 2

Looking forward to the next round at Knockhill now!

Also flicking through some of the records on the Crail website im sitting 2nd overall in the up to 1600cc diesel class.

Looks like darkside have lowered the 1.6 tdi record down from 14.9 to 14.5 so new target to aim for.

What a couple of days. Got the car to the garage first thing yesterday and straight away started having issues.

First thing was the turbo, mines was fitted with a KKK/Borgwarner turbo rather than a Garrett and the new turbo I had was a Garrett.

Next issue was the “bolt on” intercooler that was made specifically made for this platform yet no matter how we tried to line it up there was no where for the brackets to go.

Then we get to the egr cooler. On other fabias that they gave did the connectors have been a 16mm but mine had to be a 20mm so called the place who couldn’t get one delivered so ended up hiring a car driving down to Wakefield to get the pipe and also a quick detour to Darkside Developments to pick up a braided oil feed as the standard one was causing issues and a turbo intake pipe as the one provided was too small.

Getting there though.

Been at ADE Tuning in Blackburn getting tidied up yesterday and mapped today. Made decent power but they wanted me to leave the car with them to spend more time on it.
