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


Matt this you ?

Yes, probably 10 years ago!


Is yours still the same car as in your spec? I.e 194 @ wheels? Just for info do you have any idea of what times you do round Combe at that spec

Used to be about 1 min 21 I think but that was pre circuit being tarmaced. Lap times are a bit quicker since they’ve resurfaced, so I’m told. Yes specs still the same pretty much.

Few more bits off the list bolted the spoiler back down with new bolts as lost half the old ones taking it off. Ordered up a wheel rack for my trailer as my home made wheel carriers mean I can’t run a winch and well.... because race car I thought I’d better have a winch on there lol so just waiting for that to turn up. Gave the car a once over as not looked it over properly since last outing and found passenger side driveshaft gator split, so had that off and fitted a new boot from the spares box.

Fitted some covers on the + battery connections as advised when the car was looked over by a scruiteneer.

Positive news is a lot of race series are hoping to get going again in July with new measures which will mean no spectators etc but better that than nothing at all, but that all depends on how the next month/6 weeks go so fingers crossed.

Na ordered some though he said the same to me when I got them t have a quick look over it at the last trackday, had never heard of that one before.
Do you have a fuel break coupling? He said it wasn’t a big issue but advised?

That’s what I though thanks. He mentioned it as “should have one .. really” but not many do and tbh I’m sceptical of fitting one as just another thing to go wrong lol

the yellow marking on the battery negative was one of the first things I'd learnt from car prepping, but it was from a rally perspective with stage car experience so they get scrutineered for a logbook before even entering a race.

a dry break fuel takeoff is easy to add if you have full braided fuel lines already, torques sell a kit with the takeoff tube as well, just fits inline on the feed.

Transponder turned up this week so officially have all I need to actually race.



Have put name down to race in July but big numbers of competitors means I’m on a reserve list 😢 (didn’t realise I could have put my name down months ago and pulled out if didn’t want to race) but having seen a few comments it’s likely A few will drop out so fingers crossed will get in.
Other option is may opt to race in saloons if don’t get in hot hatch as after all this first year I’m just hoping to get out on the grid, get used to it and have some fun so as long as there’s something similar paced out there that’s all I want as not going to be anywhere near the front in either format

Yes.... I was there on day one helping and showing him how I did mine because as I’m sure your aware 306s are as difficult to fit as a Satchel shift can be LOL
It was his first though Whistle
He was surprised how much more difficult the twin skin floor can be with the heater box in than the 106 Thumbs up

Yeah it’s drilling the hole that’s the hard bit, especially with dash in etc so don’t envy that job. 205 was a piece of cake really. I’ve done my share of fitting them though having 2 on the 306 in its history lol
