All done on road tyres



Memo to self :

1) Drop clutch and hit the loud pedal quicker when the lights go green

2) Do not shut off when you see the finish and you're leading the car in the other lane (track habits die hard Sad )

3) Get better tyres Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Ian,
you are not racing the tree, best advice is go when you are ready,, the clock does not start until the beam is broken, so if all you want as relative times, be calm cool and collected,
If you want to race the tree, go on the bottom yellow, just before the green Wink

It was sad you could not make it to the Retro show as I could have done with some coaching Crying or Very sad

Seriously, it was the busiest I have ever been trying to watch the revcounter, change gear and stop the rear end from overtaking the front. That 13 odd seconds is over in a flash.

And then you want to do it again Very Happy
