Glad you're booked in, I've got to see how work goes before then.

I see you've got your licence back, have to put it to good use now!!

I've never driven in conditions as bad as that in 20 years!! Had a bloody great smile on my face though.
1st heat - Took a gamble on slicks as I saw a dry line coming through...They were the right choice for the first 5 laps then the heavens opened, just about managed to creep to the end.
2nd Heat - Everyone was on wets and wasn't really paying attention to the track...By turn 1 realised the track was dry...Slicks were the tyres to be on so missed a MASSIVE chance, I come in after 3 laps as I was ripping the tyres apart.
Final - Wets were the only tyre needed for that one!! Was absolutely pouring down...Had a descent start and kept with the pack for a lap of so. Andy Parish and Dennis Trzeciak has a coming together in front of me so managed to make my way through that before I had a moment myself through the lake that formed at the beginning of the main straight to let them back through. After that I had a great race with Dennis and passed him with a great move into turn 2. Finished P5 so was quite happy with that.

Taking the next race day off as its Fathers Day...Although I'd rather be racing. Going to do 2 test days instead. Give me some time to upgrade the brakes to BSD caliper, picking that up next week and having the carb bead blasted and rebuilt. I'll have a look at the diary and see if we can book the same day?

Wicked stuff! Saturday was a challange, Sunday must of been even more so! I need loads more testing in the wet. But like I said to Billy, I don't like getting wet :eek:.

Yes for sure! I think @Billywatts is up for a play day at Bayford soon too. Maybe have a meet up and see if any of the other lads are up for it? I'm up for it for sure. I want to get 1 or 2 test days in before the next meeting. Hopefully anooother kilo lighter by then too ;)

Brake wise; what fluid do you want to run? I am running 5.1 in the new style brakes. I know some lads run DOT 5, the silicon stuff? If you want to run DOT5 save yourself the money, I have a brand new un opended bottle in the workshop bought out of error. It's yours if you want it! I don't want anything for it, be glad to free up the space on the shelf. I can either bring to Bayford or feel free to pick it up from my place.

This one....
