What a difference a tyre makes – mini review of Yokohama Advan Neovas on track

Yesterday, finally, after a break of nearly four years, I returned to the race track. Not for a competitive event, but for a track day. And I learned a little… The scene has changed. Maybe. Track days were mostly full of road cars. Lotus Elises were hugely popular, but you’d see a collection of Porsches, various […]

Oulton Park Trackday With GTDC

After two years of going nowhere near a race circuit while I concentrated on building up the business, I finally got the Elise nicely fettled by Phoenix Motorsport in Accrington and got out with the Gold Track Driving Club.

Photos From the Aintree Spring Sprint 2008

I’m not going to be challenging for anything much this year, but on April 26th I ambled along to the Aintree Spring Sprint and took some snaps. A selection of them are available here. Use them as you like, but don’t remove the tag. If you’d like to receive a higher quality image, just let […]

Aintree Spring Sprint 2008

Each year, Liverpool Motor Club holds three sprints at the classic Aintree circuit.  It’s a relaxed, sociable and efficient event. I always thought TVR’s finest moment was the Cerbera – a combination of classic low-rider looks, power, and noise.  Still handled badly, but that can largely be sorted out. It was great to see everyone […]

Almost worth it for the ooh-la-la.

Stop Whinging and Learn to Drive

Sorry David Coulthard, but when I saw this: http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/motorsport/formula_one/7191512.stm I saw red.  I mean, apart from some of his astonishingly patronising comments directed towards younger drivers, he did nothing but confirm that his F1 career has been a long period of journeyman mistakes. His ability to spin off during warm up laps was once something […]

Hillclimb and Sprint Photography

I don’t often mention other sites, but that’s more because I’m lazy and don’t do my research, rather than any intent to ignore. But I can’t ignore Gary Thomas’s new sprint and hillclimb photo site. He takes some cracking pictures of the sprint scene and shows them off at his photo site yourftd.com where you […]

Aintree Sprint Report, 8th September 2007

A bit slow putting this one up, but it needs doing! It was an unusual day for me, in part, because I’d not really expected to be competing! I’d really given up on this season – with a shortage of funds and time while I continue getting my business on its feet (it’s at http://www.interconnectit.com […]

Aintree Sprint, 30th June 2007 – Rain again

If you’re in Britain you’ll already be aware that for the past few weeks we’ve been getting rain of near biblical proportions, with floods causing a lot of damage in the Midlands, and just a lot of heavy rain in the rest of the country. Aintree wasn’t much different, though not quite so bad as […]

Anglesey Sprint, 9th-10th of June 2007

Yes, this really is my first event of the year! It won’t be my last, but sadly business and finances have to take a priority and it’s unlikely I’ll be doing much sprinting this season. I’ll do the odd track-day, however, to keep my eye in. And it didn’t really go well – at a […]
