there is that many convoy's that it doesn't tend to matter...

vosa van and mr police man can be seen to be parked up on the road leading up to the raceway.

as long as you don't draw attention to yourself, cars legal, and don't drive like a maniac you will be fine guys.

we used to leave at 8am (ish) from Eurocentral, this meant you got to crail about 10am (ish)

I think it costs about £10 maybe to get in. thats price per person, not per car.

yes it opens at 9am, but only go that early if you plan on going on the strip / show n shine / oval. it gets busy, and spaces are limited for these. not limit to spectators though.

yup - got to Crail nearer 11am and managed to get 4 runs in. The 2 morning runs were crap as the strat was greasy/wet. The 2 afternoon runs were better but still not that good. I've strained a muscle in my left shoulder which is affecting my whole left arm so the gear changes were painful and I couldn't get a fast change.

Think the best time I got was 14.4 with a launch 0-60 time of 2.1 something which is slow for me. It should be touching the 13.2 mark. I didn't hang about as the waiting for each run was nearly 45 minutes and I'm also having bother with my right leg going into cramp (excuses).

The brakes were working really well and the new paddle clutch performed as it should. I'm wondring whether to go back to 245/45x18 from the 225/40x18 tyres to give me a better top speed as the engine will handle it.

Its a bit of a laugh now as folk who know the car won't race beside me - embarrassment of being beaten by a RAV4 I guess :toast: :toast:

The place was mobbed and I didn't go for a walkabout so sorry I missed you.

thanks

the alloys are DARE DRifts and the spare is inside to help the centre of gravity.

Yer times will get better as your technique improves, until the clutch etc burns out!!
