Swindon Club Round – 2/7/2023

Just 2wd fun today. Practice was greasy, back end fine on line, despite dry setup. Steering non existent in the shaded twisty bits. A bit more roll, silvers and an under servo weight was my first round bet.

Heat 1 was good. More grip than anticipated. So took rear toe in down a degree to 2 and took a mil out of the front ride height. Yellows on the front so hopefully not as grabby.

Heat 2 AAAARRRGH! Grip rolling all over the shop! Emergency roll center reduction 2mm rear 3mm front. 15mm Ride Height all round. 7mm hexes on the rear. And hope to goodness it doesn’t rain.

Heat 3 All those changes were working. Then about 3 minutes in, a wheel fell off. Arse.

Heat 4 I think somehow I lost a Wheel Hex Drive Pin, Which caused the wheel nut to unscrew itself. Heat 4 ended up being a just a cautious banker to get me out of the C Final. Job Done.

Ended up scraping into the B Final, so not dreadful 🙂

Getting within striking distance of Neale was quite pleasing.

Leg 2 was even better, and the track time meant I could grab back a better result.
