Post Re: My 2016 season
Couldn't take the bike to Goodwood , I'd be 20 minutes getting round :lol:

Anyway , it was warm and dry all day so no excuses on that score. Although somewhat concerned about the first corner/Madgewick , I approached it in 4th at full throttle then a little lift and no braking and she stuck that ok without a wobble. Then up to 6500rpm before 5th and almost flat through Fordwater and down to Noname , no braking , small lift then St Mary's entry in 4th and pushed hard into the dip and out of Lavant also in 4th but with a lift. Pushed hard on exit to 7000rpm revcut the 5th at the kink ---------------- rather sluggish while waiting for 5th to build up to max at under 6000rpm/too high a ratio . Dropped to 4th for Woodcote with a lift then into 3rd at exit rumble and pushed hard on through the Chicane. Lots of variation during the day as to what I did and where but the above got me the best laptime.
Classification of classes was really odd ie. finals had me in class 2 when actually entered class 4 . So with 27 in class 2 the awards were given with us split into class 2 to 5 and none had me in any top three positions :oops: Until BRIGHTON & HOVE website shows the full results I haven't a clue where I came within that group of 27 cars :? BEST lap was 113.46 sec's from starting first practice at 119 sec's .

Handling with my first best guess at set-up was great , very secure but really missed the 5th top end of my Stylus :P

Post Re: My 2016 season
This Saturday 6th August will be my last sprint in the GTAm rep , then it will be the STYLUS in Sept/Goodwood and Oct/Eelmoor and that's it for 2016 . Three in each is more than the total I've been entering since retirement .
Stuart is most likely working next weekend so I'll have no pit help and , right now , have a bloody aweful back issue :x Anyone fancy being my pit bitch :P :?:
