So after a few teething problems mainly my inability with a spanner, the car is pretty much there and as long as i survive the Ring & Spa will be out at Oulton for my first race yikes
I've loved re-freshing the car and now can't wait to race it!![Although allot poorer]
Thanks to everyone thats helped me get to this point and look forward to meeting you all!

looking good.

getting your first race out of the way this season will give you a head start for next year,as you'll know what the routine is and be a bit more relaxed.

The first race can be a bit daunting but just yell if your unsure or need a hand, everyone will help out

No laps times taken by me as it was the first time i'd driven the car bar for two hairy laps round the Ring the day before, although a nice man said he timed me on the pit wall @ 2.50's! not great as i managed a 2.56 in the 350 in April!Plenty of room for improvment once i get my head round the slicks wink

Did it scare you? I think Blanchimont is way scarier than Eau Rouge in it.... ;-)

Hi mate , no where near as much as a cold ring in the morning the day before yikes
Found the car a pleasure round Spa once the tyres where warm! Awesome bit of kit!
