Re: ZZ19

I did rebook my DFDS crossing so am currently outbound from Newcastle on the 8th, returning from Newcastle on October 2nd.

Re: fuel pump not working

The fuel pump will prime even if the ECU hasn't received the code (instead the engine will cut out a few seconds after starting) so you can ignore the code. The usual culprits for fuel pump not running are: * Inertia switch, as mentioned above. * 10A (or sometimes 20A fitted) fuse that lives in the ...

Re: Exige V6 Upgrades

That droop travel was actually awesome. You could get the front inside wheel to lift up but the rears were still in contact with the ground and driving the car forward. The car had no power, mind you, which always helps the handling ;-)

No completely different car, this was a ground up build.
Whereas McKean's was ground up sh*t. :-)

I don't actually know! Ring the office and ask if there is a specific fund or charity that supports the marshalls. Pretty sure there is a UK wide charity but there may be a specific Scottish one?

Video schmideo. You had to be there, man. :-) There are still spaces on all three DN events this year if anyone needs a fix. http://www.destination-nurburgring.com/2019-dates Some of us are going on the Sep 30/Oct 1 (DN22), but there are spaces on all three. I think Paul has spaces on his November S...

Re: Spa'n'K 2019

Got back yesterday afternoon. Awesome trip. In case anyone was in any doubt, the food on the Hull ferry is S H I T. Next time I am taking my own food. Good driving on Monday. A dry day at Spa, trying to man up - the older I get the more vivid my imagination - which is odd because I don't really care...

Yes, the best place for your car to catch fire is on track ... literally nowhere else is there someone standing there in the freezing cold and rain with a fire extinguisher, just for you. You realise that you have to make a donation to the marshall's fund in events such as this, don't you ;-)

Yes, though maybe head off around noon to make sure we get on early enough to be in the brasserie before they run out of macaroni cheese.

Re: Williams F1 Team

Which is why becoming a third team makes sense. Red bull benefit from extra test mileage, etc, Williams get better performance.
Maybe Mercedes will run them as a sister team? There is a some history there.

Re: Long shot - car to Craig at CMC

Robin has provided many a charged battery swap service on many trips. And benefited from a few too! Also remember hijacking some crazy van driver in a service station to boost charge Egor after the alternator broke at Cadwell, but we drove it to Spa anyway and did less than an hour before it fell a...
