Anyone meeting at the chievley services?

I dont want to be setting off too early, their meeting there at 12:00 so I was planning on leaving Exeter at about 9:30, anyone fancy convoying up with me around that time?

Sorry, I know its a bit late, been very busy, only just thought I had better check what everyone was doing! Doh!

Well i had a go up the strip on Sunday in the roadster and managed a 13.51 at 100mph which i'm pleased with :th: the car would do more but i can't bring myself to launch it like i used to do in my old mk2 as the roadster is a more fragile creature and the shafts aren't built to drop the clutch at 4k :)

my goal for the day was under 14 seconds which i maged at 13.81 but still not happy :sad: car had so much more to give but the gear linkages let me down changing from 2nd to 3rd, my last go against my mate ed (futuremr2ed) would have been my best as i gained 2 car lengths at the start but fluffed it not being able to get in 3rd :crybaby: his time was 13.8 so i wish i knew what mine could have been :annoyed:

so p*****d of so im returning in a few weeks time to have another go with new linkages and without all my camping gear in the car :laughing

im not done yet..... :D

Unlimited runs on the Saturday and max 3 runs on the Sunday (but you probably won't get 3 due to the HKS series and the bikes taking preference).
