Couple of pics from Tuesday's trackday at Oulton Park.





Mint day, fantastic weather, I love that circuit - just perfect for the Atom. I just need some more power and better tyres.

Looks like huge fun! See what you mean about the tyres through!

Ours has just had the suspension overhauled and we're going to to put it through its paces on Monday at Combe!

Hey Bruce, how's things?

Overhauled? In what way? From seeing the photo on the apex, I can see how crap the mudguard mounts are - did you ever get your modified so they tracked the wheels better?

Yes, we now have the latest mudguard mounts which are a LOT more stable.

We've also have the whole thing checked over (a few wire ties had come undone!) and the latest suspension settings applied. We shall see on Monday if it all works properly

We're doing Combe again in July (28th) and Palmer the following Saturday (Aug 2th), but I'm looking into Donnington if you're up for it?

How much work was required to get the revised mudguards stanchions fitted? I may have to get that done myself.

I'm at Elvington on 12th July with EasyTrack in a bid to ruin my tyres so I can buy a new set. I don't think there are any places spare but you might be able to find someone that has a spare if you can make it.

Donington - to be honest, my Atom just doesn't have the power for the circuit - it felt very lacking last July when I was there. I'll think about it though, perhaps another evening session.

You should really try and come up for Oulton Park sometime as it's a fantastic track for the Atom.
