Regular readers may have spotted it has been quiet for a good while and that is because we have been away for two plus weeks, marshaling on the Euro leg of the Peking to Paris rally.
We drove out to Poland to meet the rally, and then followed the event all the way through Europe to Paris. It was a tough two weeks with early starts, and many late nights plus very changeable weather from baking hot 36’c sun to 0’c and snow and ice.
This though meant a quiet June and July for the rally car and in the garage.
However August will be busier, currently planned is a sprint at Hethel (Lotus test track), a targa rally at Debden and hopefully a stage rally at Wethersfield at the end of the month.
So to get ready for these events, the weekend has been busy doing :-
- Scrubbing in x4 Yoko A539’s
- Oil & filter change
- Hopefully curing a small oil leak on the dipstick tube
- Fitted new grooved front discs and EBC Black pads
- Full bolt check
- Bleeding front brakes
