All the gear but.......

Recommended Posts

So it looks like my 1st event in the tr sprint calendar will be at goodwood in April. I think I have got everything lined up but was wondering if there was anybody going that wouldn't mind showing me how things work on the day?

Hi Ensure you have your paperwork race licence, tr register membership card. 

Racewear and helmet. Helmet may need compliance sticker if not already got one - the scrutineer can do this for you on the day.

get your race numbers- when you know what it is- demon tweeks are good for this last minute.

timing light breaker thingy.

if you can aim to arrive with just enough fuel for the event 1/3 to 1/4 as you don’t do a lot of comp miles but they will be flat out, May be take a spare can ?

turn up in good time and sign on early.

then sort the car - empty it of all the loose stuff and spare wheel tools etc ( some people take a little pop up tent to keep their stuff in)  put on numbers and timing light breaker. Tyre pressures ? Wheel nut check.

leave bonnet and boot open for scrutineers they will do their rounds so you should see them coming. They’ll want to check car out for safety. And look at your race wear inc gloves and helmet overalls etc.

then you’ll be on to practice .....

 

That’s what I can think of at the mo.....

and enjoy

 

remember the green light is not the immediate go- you can take couple seconds to compose yourself. It’s not a drag race. 

 

Ps

see if there are any sprint runs on youtube - don’t watch the single seaters for their braking points tho !!!!!!!!!!!
