Great hot day at Goodwood and managed to cut 2 sec's off my May 7th laptime at Goodwood . No practice times because the 1st was incorrect showing me at 88 sec's :!: Then the 2nd practice I caught an Escort MK2 with 2lt Warrior twincam , just exiting Lavant , so that lap was 127 sec's .
Timed runs were 112 sec's then 111 sec's ---- not exact but no timesheet online yet . When that's published I'll know where I came in the 20 odd cars in class :oops:

I came 12th in class at 111.7 secs from 22 cars , slowest being a classic ALFA GUILA 129.85 secs and 1st in class being 97.46 secs / ELISE 160 BHP.
I did beat a MEV ROCKET , ESCORT 2LT TWINCAM WARRIOR ENGINED , CLIO 172 , which surprised me .

Those are my Goodwood 6th August times but I've just had my ACSMC Champ'p results so far for the Alfa and it shows me 3rd out of 12 cars :P
Unfortunately I won't be running the Alfa for the next events , so probably will be knocked out of 3rd place . The next two events I'll be running my STYLUS for the first time since April :shock:

Changed my mind regarding which car to finish this season with , mainly due to the GTAm rep being 3rd in class from 12 entries in my first season of owning it and the competition being modern and more grunt than the Alfa . The Stylus has 6 champ'p wins so it would be nice to hopefully hang on to the Alfa's 3rd position :wink:
You never know , I may even put my highly developed track Stylus plus history on the market -------------- ready to win straight out of the box with a quick pilot behind the wheel :idea: Flying best Goodwood lap 91.8 secs , standing start sprint best lap 93.27 secs :P Well --- with a pensioner pilot anyway :lol:

A dry hot day surprisingly but didn't get a practice laptime , due to catching a Mazda RX8 after it had rear ended itself at St Mary's . However , I did manage a better first timed lap than in August which at 111.01secs turned out to be the quickest of two laps. Second lap felt better but actually wasn't at 111.16secs.
So , almost 3/4 of a second quicker than the best Aug lap of 111.7secs. Absolutely knackered and wet through in the race suit and wasn't close to being even 3rd in class , so left at 3-30pm . Have to check their website next week for the results.

Rushmoor Arena is my last competition event in the Alfa this season next Sunday 2nd Oct. In this venue , I really do need to be not slow , but definitely careful . Trees and kerbs :!: The GTAm must remain in one piece including the lack of scratches on arches :roll:

An issue with the Alfa regarding ' class ' was raised by another entrant , not in my class however , so simply nastiness . My other class opposition guys have not raised any issues all season , nor had the guy complaining who'd also been at all the events I've entered. I was asked to move into class 10 from road going A4 1800 to 2000cc . That saw me 8th from 10 in class but at this stage I've no clue whether any of the seasons points will now count towards the championship :roll: Could mean a wasted season's entry fees / travel etc which is considerable , plus the 5th gear swap that I wouldn't have done if not chasing points -- ugh .
The gripe was -------- it's not a genuine GTAm , it's a replica , so cannot be considered an out of factory car :? :?

Laptimes are approx. as I've not got the sheet yet.
First practice 66. :?: 2nd practice 64. :?: first timed run 61.9 sec's(remember that one/really on it) 2nd T run 62. :?: 3rd T run 62. :?:
