Silverstone came and went, and at the beginning of the day I was quietly confident with what I’d achieved.
Blurry eyed, I got to work at 7am Saturday morning after dropping Lucy off at work. The guides I’d found online helped quite a lot, but for the most part it was fairly easy going and not that many parts to keep track of. I know the hard part is yet to come, building it back up is going to be an interesting and worrying experience.
My friend Andrew has quite a good relationship with Paul Roddinson, :thumb: Racing Friends :thumb: who was at Donington testing his new MX5 race car, after a few good laps with it I went over before I left and said hi, to find it wasn’t him driving it, shame. Anyway, this would prove useful, With Silverstone knocking on the door I needed a quick diagnosis on the coolant loss issue. Paul had helped Andrew in the same way with the mini, so I took an extended lunch break and trailered the car over to Pauls for him to carry out a sniff test on the car.
The Saturday before Donington was the Birkett 6 Hour Relay race at Silverstone, I popped down to show moral support and eat all of Stace’s snacks. When wandering around the paddock, the tyre chappies had some part worn AO48r’s for sale, and after parting with £100 I was the proud owner of some pretty decent looking tyres.
Cadwell came and went without much drama, camping was good fun, and I introduced Lucy to Track Days, she really enjoyed herself. Thanks to everyone who made her feel welcome, especially the lady Pinders.
