Great weather today at Goodwood , nice dry , sunny grippy circuit. A 111.98secs practice , about like last year's PB (a touch slower) . First timed run I pushed really hard trying to top 110 sec's and amazed to get 109.74 sec's . Didn't believe I could beat that then sitting there after lunch analysing my full run , thought if possible , I might get some time by arriving even quicker at Madgewick , if the gear changes from the pitlane 1st 2nd 3rd then 4th max at 7000rpm were slicker , although that corner has a rise which hols back revs a bit.
Not sure quite how that extra speed happened but it was quicker , no braking or lift as before -- however , three opposite locks were required to get through it without arriving on the grass - phew :!:
It did the job for me , although possibly my overalls might be another colour in places :lol: The time was 109.04 sec's :P - made my day :) That's 4 sec's off my PB at last year's first sprint in the Alfa GTAm

Just looking over the 2018 Class A4 ACSMC regs , that the coordinator said were going to change. ie. the 1.4 ratio applied to turbo and super charged cars , going up to 1.7 ratio -- also until 2017 the max engine cc's was 2000cc inclusive of turbo/SC for A4 but went up to 2300cc - that allowed 1600cc turbo and SC engines at 1.4 ratio sneak into A4 .
Hence being 3rd in the class championship in 2017 , whereas I was 2nd in 2016 . HOWEVER the coordinator didn't move that ratio up to 1.7 NOR change the max engine size back to 2000cc , which it's been for nearly 20 years . The class winner was a BMW COOPER WORKS specially developed turbocharger car , throwing out well over 300bhp . The owner told me it was not fully developed and was on going , presently at 325bhp . The power it probably has this year easily puts it in class A5 , along with cars with similar and less power :? :?

It doesn't seem sense to me , as even the other cars in class have a max of 200bhp/quick Clio --- simply cannot understand why it was changed in the first place from 2000 to 2300cc :x
Obviously it's demotivating to know at the outset that regardless of skill against the other higher bhp cars in class than my 150bhp Alfa , it simply is not possible to win against that huge power difference . I haven't entered the ACSMC championship for 2018 - so buying a classic to stop wasting cash on developing the STYLUS further ROPS wise , was a waste of time and money . REGS have kicked me into touch yet again. No idea what to do now :roll:

Got bored car wise re- my last post , so have entered the Lancia Motor Club Goodwood trackday on the 31st March with the GTAm , nice of them to give me an invitation , probably short on entries and difficult to justify at 2018 Goodwood price hike 20% . Still good value at £224 a full day though. Obviously didn't like the idea of having the STYLUS on their day :lol:
