A last minute call to the event organisers on Sunday night just gone and we had a track pass sorted for this weekends rs Combe. I didn’t make the show last year due to my daughter as she was due to be born around this date lol. Dad did make the trip up but the day was ended early while out on track due to some stretched front studs.

Anyway the car has come a long way since last year so we are both looking forward to taking her out on track to stretch her legs. We had issues with fuel surge last year at Combe so the swirl pot will be doing its job we’ll come Saturday. With the extra weight taken out of the car it should be abit nippier too.

Msa hill climb at Prescott

A great weekend at Prescott was had. The rs ran faultless all weekend and handled very well on the tight course. Saturday was practice where we both had 3 runs. Sunday was race day where we had 2 runs to crack a good time. The day started off with a mass down pour so our first run was pointless :-(. The last run was late afternoon where it had dried out so we were all set for a flyer time. The car was joint driven by me and my farther so once I had done my run I came back to the pits for a quick change over so he could do his run. End of day the results were in and I made 2nd place and Dad made 5th after a fluffed gear change.
So it was a great first outing for the car and came away with a glass trophy for my efforts.
