About £340 for the standard races, £450 for Brands GP and Silverstone.

The 45 min races are different to the 15 min races of the MX5s. The pace is still up there but it's less intense, few minutes where there's nothing going wrong. The pitstop adds an interesting element of strategy. Multi-class racing is interesting and can be more annoying than anything else but that's part of the deal I guess.

Similar to tricolore then pretty sure there 350 this year and that’s 1 qualifying and 2 15min races although same cost all tracks.

That’s why I’m doing combe £215 entry, tbh works out similar to tricolore and trackday trophy if you work out seat time per £ but being completely novice hopefully good place to start and cost similar to a trackday.. well that is when we can get out

On another note carbon boot is now body colour

And pulled the wing off to redo that as well as when the original stickers came off it pulled the paint which I tried to just touch in which to me always stood out so always bugged me, so whilst nothing else going on thought may as well do this as well, surprised how clean it was under there. May even fit the sill stands kit I’ve had laying around.. if I can fight the skirts off that is as they are bonded on pretty solid.

I like the look of the cars with the skirts, think they look a bit weird without them. Sill stands would be handy though

Yeah much better. Tbh I’m still undecided on the bonnet, I’m thinking same as you with go green but the mrs, Jake (who shares my unit) and the father in law who helps out on the car all want me to keep it black....

So no doubt it’ll go green eventually lol

I always say this Mike ...if you think it ...do it as first thought is always what we end up doing LOL
The colour really does make the car pop well Big grin

My personal view is the black bonnet looks like a bit of a after thought now the Rest is green and that looks 200% better ...well done also it’s a credit to you Thumbs up

Yeah I agree and will no doubt end up green in the long run, although gotta let the mrs have her say every now and then considering the time and money invested I’ve been let get away with especially as we agreed no holiday this year as I was racing etc.. which in hindsight the no holiday bit was the right idea for obvious reasons.

Hopefully will get to race it as still looking at what steps are next to improve but no point at this stage as reckon there’s another 1-2sec to come out the car in its current state which hopefully I’ll find once in the thick of it come race day as always quicker when chasing and there will be plenty to chase.

Bit of common sense and good luck then ?
Totally agree let her think your listening for now Whistle
Combe is opening ....can you get some more practicing / seat time in ?

I personally believe (You) will defo find that just with seat time to start with Mike Let alone chasing or being chased LOL

I’m going to wait to see what Msa/combe day in terms of racing as Last I heard from combe they were tentative for July so hoping to do a race albeit under closed doors with no spectators but that’s good enough for me to start with at least, if racing ends up being a no go for the year I’ll look towards doing a trackday Or something a bit later on

Hello!Thumbs up
Yes mine was off the road for about 9 yrs but back up together now. Ash’s isn’t too far off either now. We’ve both booked the day plus Pete with a HB gti6 and a another lad with a nice 205. Should be good!

Slip and Grip automotive I think they are called. It’s only £155 for a full day which is pretty good!
