Nick, I'll come over and find you next meeting. Should be up on Saturday morning, depending on the timetable.
My website isn't great at the moment, still a lot of development to do there, but it's only really filling in the blanks now that the structure is there. Oh, and ignore the pictures at the top, they still have the car with 48 on it as I haven't had a chance to get new photos up yet. I had asked one of the photographers to take some on Sunday, but since I managed about 3 laps before the exhaust broke I'm not holding out for any.
TL - my sponsorship so far is a family friend who owns a garage in Irvine. I'm actually from Paisley, and so's he, he just works in Irvine. But I'm still local-ish!
I originally joined up as madbaz, but I put in the wrong e-mail address so had to re-register as XR2 Baz...so only one Baz has joined.
Yeah, the car is ex Dave Robertson. Prior to that it was Gerry Little's and before that Colin Murchie's!
What do I need help with? Er...where do I start. I need to go faster, though without a 200BHP turbo engine (I've seen the pics, nice!, but I don't think it'd get by the scrutineers ) . The engine seems pretty strong, so it's more down to setup and driver.
Ha, not a daft questin at all!! Recently no, no-one has showed me round the track, though I've been out in the school cars a lot in years gone by. I was actually in the Search for a Star '97, and have been out with Cowie, Forrest, Franchitti and Brunton.
That said, the track has changed since then, and I'm still applying the old lines and am gradually beginning to realise where I'm losing time. I've read the track guides, and it looks like I can gain a heap of time through McIntyres (turn in earlier), Chicane and Clark, which makes up a fair amount of the lap!
On top of that, is building confidence. I'm on a shoe-string budget and sometimes a bit over cautious in protecting the car. I learned the hard way a few years ago in a hillclimb when I rolled my Midas through trying too hard.
Not sure why No. 48 rings a bell with you. I've not been around for the past couple of years having been in Oz, I just bought the car after I got back at the end of last season. I've never hired a race car either, so it wasn't me.
