    Off to Brands Hatch tomorrow night as long as I get the brakes / hub bolt sorted in time.

    I'm almost ready for a test run on track. Need a new rear caliper first but edging closer all the time.


    Go ski

    Vwtrev thought I'd make contact again.
    So I've had ups and downs with the motor, but almost done. Now sporting a new BW KO4 turbo. FMIC
    And a B5 custom map and a few more bits and bobs.
    Thought I was ready to go but need VVT tensioner changed next week.
    After that I'm looking to book something up for early spring.
    Do you have any idea when are you next out on track and where?



    B5 Custom Map, TIP, FMIC, 3" Turbo Back, Bosch 550's,ARB's and more .....

    Hi Sparkie, you're building a cracking spec. car there. Needs to be driven properly in a safe environment :D

    Funny you ask, Just booked up the following in the last few days:

    Brands Hatch - Friday 16th Feb 2018 with Javelin.co.uk

    and Thruxton - Monday 25th June 2018 with Circuit-days.co.uk

    can't wait but have a few jobs to do before them (like put in my bucket seat, catch can, etc.)

    Cheers

    Trev

    Yes mate, Indy circuit.

    Full circuit is rip off money, but it has prestige and the village people have to give the circuit permission to make noise, blah, blah.

    Looking at Snetterton in March / April too, depending on where you are only 1hr / 30 mins up M11.

    Very interesting. Is that towards Norfolk?
    Snetterton is one of the longest tracks too, if I remember. More tarmac for everyone.

    Yes mate, Thetford near Norfolk.

    I prefer it to Brands if i'm honest only thing is mostly rains when I go!! But means i'm normally one of the quickest cars on circuit :D and its 3 times the driving time to and from for me.

    Brands is 25 minutes, Snetterton is 1.5 hrs + a whole extra tank of fuel.

    Easy to find on Google :)

    Cheers

    Trev.

    Think we are going back to Snetterton soon as possible.
