  1. Just a few days before leaving to England. New tires are installed, bought high octane fuel....the weekend can come.
  2. Mick, Marco Werner was about a second faster with his Pro Car M1 than the TR8. I'm not too far off. During this race dealt with him and the yellow Porsche 935 for about 3 Laps, then my fuel pump has shut off again and both flew by. Later that race the right front tire lost pressure. No idea why. Today I drowned that wheel under water and I see very 10 seconds a little blub at one spot, between tire and rim. The wheel did hold pressure for a week now. Maybe the valve opened at high speed as I don't use valve caps?
  3. I ran EBC pads (yellow) for many years, but suddenly 2 years back from now the pads started to deteriorate on the tracks and fell apart on several occasions, TR4 and TR8. I moved on to Pagid racing pads. Fantastic. For sure much more expensive, but almost ever lasting and braking is much better and way more predictable.
  4. I had a look on the data recordings. Topspeed 255,4 kph Interesting that the roof spoiler lowered the topspeed only 1 kph, but provides a better cornering performance. I had the subjective feel that it was more influence on topspeed, but numbers say the truth. 1.97G vector acceleration! And I brake too early the software says. The roof spoiler gives 10kph more on the fast right kink.
  5. The Trabants are Icons of this racing series....Like your Queen. Nobody would touch them and they stay clear from the ideal line as good as they can. The racing series brought 120 cars to Hockenheim and seperated the faster ones from the slower in two grids which was fun too.
  6. The Trabants are loved by the spectators and treated with care by the other drivers.

  8. Ha, your TR4 is way faster than mine. Maybe I dice with Chris Edwards.
  9. The others race elsewhere. I'm at Spa with the TR8 but I could bring the TR4 too.
  10. Occasionally i'm getting across the TR Enterprise cars at Spa. They do pretty well and have good power figures. Cheers Chris
  11. So I shall bring my TR4 to Spa too?
  12. The TVR Tuscan is a great race car. V8 with overhead camshaft, 460 hp, independ suspension all around, huge brakes. Everything you need to be fast. Currently he finished 6 times in front of me, and me 3 times in front of him. The guy is nice and a great driver. This will be continued. The early retirement is from the crash switch. I went over rumble curb and the fuel pump was switched off by the crash switch. I take this device out. The faster the car gets, the more this device cause trouble. PS: I've met Gerrys Marshals son once.
  13. As you point it out, is flat cornering good or bad?
  14. Many tire problems. I have two flat tires. I guess from the F1 carbon bits on the track
