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.
For the Chevrolet TVR Tuscan this bank holiday Monday. 18 yes 18 months since I have been in the hot seat of the chevy and I’m really looking forward to it as you can imagine. Steve over at Powercrazy Motorsport has been playing with the mapping on the car. We have gone from 450Lbs/Ft way up to 535Lbs/Ft that is a whooping jump.
The car is going to be very quick as it has a very impressive 507 BHP to add to the torque. I have a vague feeling of scariness and trepidation going through folly flat out, I expect that to focus my mind the first time through . Not having been in the car for so long and I have to say looking at the entry list, I will be in at the deep end. Still can’t really wait to find out what the car will do. I have put big rubber on and look forward to a sunny Monday afternoon.
Two races have been taken out of the race calendar for this year. Brands Hatch GP 1st May as my car does not conform to regulations of the V8 series . Also I have had to take out Donnington park in September as it clashes with a family commitment. I am looking into other race opportunities and will let you know of any new dates as and when I get them sorted out. Not long till the season kicks off at Thruxton.
