Scottish Sprint Championship - Kames 24/25 May

Postby kevham » Wed May 21, 2008 12:19 am

Hi,
I'll be competing at Kames again this weekend.

Saturday is anti-clockwise (my first time) and Sunday is the normal clockwise layout. Tweaked the suspension a wee bit so if the weather's nice, I'll be hoping to beat the magic 100secs on Sunday.

As usual, practice starts around 10am and it should all be finished by 3.30pm. Entry will be £4 after 9.30am.

Full report and some pics after the event.

Oops...originally this was listed as a Saturday only event, which I did think was strange at the time, also one of the reasons in arranging the 'Inverness with friends' event on Sunday, so I won't make Kames this time, all the best anyway.

I'll try to get out to Kames for a while on Sunday - we've got lots to do this weekend.

Good luck Kevin - 100 sec is there to be beaten!

Well day 1 is over and it was a bit strange. The weather was fine (if a touch windy) but I was a bit out of sorts as I had done my back in fitting the stock ARBs on Friday.

It was also my first time going anti-clockwise at Kames and it is a completely different track in that direction.

The morning got off to lousy start as there was a shortage of marshals, meaning some drivers had to help out and only 1 car on track at a time - things dragged a bit!

I managed 99 secs on my first run which seemed very slow in comparison to others. The car felt very skittish and I had a big lock-up coming into the hairpin. I decided to lower the tyre pressures a bit. :oops:

Second run I managed 95.63 secs and I thought there was a bit more to come as I made another big mistake at the hairpin. However, third run I only managed 95.17secs.

Then there was a big delay as there was a whole sump load of oild dumped on the track and much effort was required to clean it up.

Final run came round and i managed 95.04secs. Last in class (by a long way) and one of the slowest overall. Nevermind. It sets a benchmark for my next outing going 'the wrong way round'..........

Some pics taken on my phone:

Well done Kev.

I see you've aquired a few more stickers, at this rate there won't be much paintwork left by the end of the season.
