Back end all repaired over the week end and back at Powercrazy to fit new bearings and finish off a few jobs . Looking good for Silverstone on Saturday
We will be a busy team in two weeks time when we take the Rover to Silverstone for a round of the Classic Sports Car Club ” Future Classic’s ” at the International circuit on the 27th May then onto Castle Combe for the Monday running of the Dave Allen memorial race sponsored by Honda UK in the Chevrolet Car. They will be both good races I’m sure after a rocky start to the season, we are looking to get some laps on the Rover car before the big meeting at Spa francorchamps in Belgium
And i’m not talking card games here. Combe was dry and I must say once I was in the car I was really relaxed about it and boy what a qually session we had. Dropped into the 109′s again only just but I will take a 109 carrying on from where we left off 18 months again. The car was feeling quick although I was having gear change problems and it was not selecting quite as snick as it has done in the past. Something to look into when it’s back in the work shop. Probably just needs a tweak with the gear tronic’s ecu or was it operator error. I’ll go for the ecu theory.
All well in qually then, got into 4th spot with a 109.887 looking forward with a right scrap with the cars around me a rapid Evo, Lambo and Dodge Viper. It all ended very quickly for me as I snapped a drive shaft on the start of the green flag lap. So I had to sit out the race watching from the bank at the Esses.
