Just quick update to let you know how our weekend was down at Easter Thunderball.
After the usual mad thrash the week before easter weekend, we eventually got the car loaded in the coach for the first time ever about an hour before leaving… and it fits like a glove.
We got to the track at about 7pm and got our pit set out, car on its stands and chilled in the coach ready for the next day.
Friday was mostly spent getting properly acquainted with the car and making final preperation for our first run which was a planned 330ft no gas run.
The burn out was OK enough but after that things went away and the car died leaving the line……fortunately enough this was down to a switch being in the wrong position so we made prep for the following day.
Saturday, thanks to the glorious easter, weather we spent time in the day waiting for another chance to try again, unfortunately once I tried to put the car onto the burnout I drove through the clutch in a shower of sparks and so was pushed back again.
Back in the pits it was decided to fit the spare clutch , and thanks to all the help and advise from Fred, Tim and the other guys in super modified, this was done …. can’t thank the other teams enough for all their help and advise this weekend and I’ve got to say how great our class is for that……all so willing to help.
Come Sunday , after all the work being done the night before we spent time waiting for a weather window to get what we thought would definately getting us up the track but again due to the weather this didn’t happen so we packed up and came home.
Me and Sharon would like to thank the lads for all their hard work at the track, Tony Gillam at Abbey Motorsport for all his help and support, Dave at Delta Pixels for his sponsorship at the event and to Andy Kirk for all his help leading up to and at the track… without all your individual inputs we probably wouldn’t have made it.
Credits also go to DogCam for providing us with two helmet cameras which are now fitted to the car and will be put into use at the next event.
