I'd come down again if I thought it wasn't going to be as busy as last time ? I hate huge queues :(

last time was the busiest I have ever seen it. Even saturday was fairly busy ( although Sat was still good , but Sunday was terrible.
Im glad I stopped racing and went home early smile.gif ...at least I got some sleep on Sunday night !

Id say if considering going, Saturday would be the better day to go in terms of track time.
Might try and make it myself, as there are other things happening that weekend too in England I'd like to take a nosey at, although it would mean getting to the track on Sunday.

that's 1 of the busiest i've ever seen there tbh
and the sunday was REALLY busy

last year the only 2 really busy days were the first and last

this 1 is the last so i'm expecting the worst

but i set a new PB last time out so i gotta go and try and better it smile.gif

Also...they need to be glueing the track right at the start of the day. Otherwise its a waste of time for the faster cars.

point being....

Without glue, the track does severely lack grip.

And both days, they didnt glue it until near or after lunchtime !!! First runs on Saturday, I still had very little traction in 3rd gear..

Apparently they need some temperature in the track for the glue to work/cure. Thats what they said last time anyway.

Wonder could I rig up a glue spray kit for my rear tyres smile.gif

Just have it spray onto the track right in front of my tyres ? lol

Propane flamer kit ahead of the rear tyres would probably work better ;)

All joking aside.....


Could such devices help ? It could certainly make for a more consistent track every time lol

i've seen a similar thing to put diesel down for the rear tyres, but I'm guessing that isn't the effect you're after.
