The joy of a local round, just 45 minutes from Door to parking in my space at Snetterton!
Even better was that the sun was shining. With a new concept in my head of not taking it so easy on the 1st practice run I set off on the first run. 125.73 not bad, although lugged through some of the turns a bit. Practice 2 was 124.62 – this time screaming through some of the turns.. and very sideways at the hairpin (Firmans).
Timed run 1 124.20, timed run 2 124.2 again. The difference? Run one, 3rd gear through Oggies, and massively sideways through Firmans. Run 2 2nd Gear Oggies, wheelspin all the way round Firmans…
Ah well lets try run 3, the sun has gone in… 124.93… with a smooth attempt at Firmans. ah well I always said it is like a classic Mini Cooper and clearly a bit of John Rhodes needed going forwards!
4th in class again.. 10 seconds of the fast Saxo’s again… Oh but the only other 1.4 was 10 seconds slower than me!
New brakes have also been ordered as they started to get a bit long and the level of dust means they can’t be much left on the pads.
