John and Craig, good to catch up.

So went to Silverstone Sunday to see if Matt from Spires has sorted the issues I had with the car.

Day started meeting John at Shell:

He is lurking in the background:

Got some tuition at 10am with Mike Wilds, told him to go easy on me as its been a while:

I put slicks on first thing, did some laps to make sure no rubbing, Mike let me drive for 15 min then he drove for last 15min.

Before lunch the rear tyres just didn't get the heat in I wanted, after lunch they came into the zone, got them to 114.

Great track and please on my 4th time there got to drive it in the dry.

Few more pictures from the day.

Car turns in so much better, shame about track temps but far better than rain.

My go pro died first thing, left the power cable on my desk at work:

Dave's loaded this up on youtube:


Im on here from 7min for a couple of min, Rays mate Dave arrives with 600bhp cozzie and have some 4 way carnage down the back straight as the Red E36 has a poor exit. I let Dave by at 8.26 to see what its got.

Then I slow down and wait for the cup car, Dave does a nice block at 14.20.

So got some jobs going down in the next few months.

First up when I got the car out the garage after silverstone it sounded like a tank.

My mishimoto rad had come loose on the drivers side and fallen down, the electric fan must of spent most of its time on the pulley and mullered the back of the fan and wires.

Need to stay off the kerbs.

Sold my 9J's and now running 10J all round on the road on Uniroyals, then 10J on track.

Malcs mounting me up some fresh rubber.

Last few days Ive had bad fuel starvation 1/4 tank at Snett and just under half at Silverstone, Im only going to get quicker so was going to go down bimmerworld kit route but decided thats to pony for this car.

Ordered this Radium Kit from Ben, looks the nuts, made properly and does not effect the oem gauge.

Going to do some preventive maintenance and change head gasket and shells. Got some ARP bolts off Ray, Inspection 2 whilst at it, then will upgrade oil pump with VAC kit to cover the weak points.

Need to fit my rear RS29's Martin kindly delivered to Silverstone.

Car is then going to the bodyshop.

Then Ill put front ARB to hard then maybe take a couple of clicks off the rear and get stuck in and get lots of TD's in.

Lovely Billy.
That Radium kit looks good

Swirl pot something I'm looking at for this season. Need to mount it inside a sealed box though or install a firewall.

What compound are the slicks you are using and how do they last with sessions of say 20-25min?

Cheers Paul, Radium kit looks like a work of art.

I use the BTCC current medium slicks, with car 1400kg + Me can do 20-25 min stint easy, they will be good for two TD like that.
