    Thanks mate. I've picked up a pair of Mtec C hook discs for the front and will sort out the DS2500s before putting them back on so I'll be doing that when I have some time.

    With previous cars on coilovers the ride is much harsher and more stiff - is it the same with these cars on coilies?

    I did this track day on the 1st March, the one sunny day between all the crap weather and storms. The sun was out but it was still a nice cool day, about 10 or 11c.

    I've a Mk1 on ST suspension (KW') V2 coilovers so cannot comment on mk2 / 3 Cupras, but I find it quite compliant, yes it can be crashy over potholes and the like and i'd not like to daily it to be honest (it is just a track car) but its not solid like a go-kart except round corners :)

    That's probably a good call, who knows when the tracks will open, some emails say tracks may open sooner rather than later, then another says some tracks are closed for May and June... not sure what they are going to do different in July they can't do now though, the virus isn't going away too soon I think, the government are just managing it (not sure how well but that's a discussion for another forum).

    Should think they’ll open for a couple of weeks and then be shut down as will the whole country. Second wave is imminent if you look at Germany and South Korea sadly.

    You can still see and chat to each other adhering to the 2 metre rule. It’s 1 to a garage and I normally share with my mate. A lot of June dates are full now, I’m trying to get my credit allocated to an event in July but Trackdays.co.uk aren’t answering the phone, they say to email but aren’t emailing back!
