Knockhill Tracknight Friday18th July 2008

.... for those that enjoy 'tracking' their car.

open pit, but with a control of the amount of cars on track. Pit lane closes if they consider the track has enough cars on it.

No worries buddy, can easily be organised!

I just hope the Elises aren't running sticky rubber :twisted:



Yeah, I've got the refurb'd turbo and pipework to fit yet, there's a replacement gearbox and 1.8 clutch/fly to install and the car will need tuned again and is due an alignment. think i'll be cutting it fine! :roll:

I did a couple of SIDC days in my Elise before I got the Mazda. Sounds like a good opportunity to attend my first OC event - I might come up and spectate, get the chance to meet folks.

I'd be delighted to give him a run. I take it he'll be hiring a helmet?

Big thank you to both Kevin & Andy (RocDoc) for offering Gavin loads of laps! Sorry we vanished when you looked for him Findlay.
Boy was it greasy..and a lesson to me with Roc in "how to catch a 5"
Thanks again chaps! I think David did great in the only MK3...kept it on the black stuff...which is more than the Evo managed!
That Lister Jag...jings..
