Default Castle Combe Special GT today

Well, I went to support MRCC at the Combe today.
There were some special cars there!

Unfortunately only one of the two race cars was on track due to drive shaft issues. Dylan did well chasing Ferraris and a bad ass BMW M3 driver who got in his way at least twice by going sideways!

Despite issues it is clear Mark is making progress with the race cars and with a couple of mods for the next race I'm sure things will improve. Personally I reckon with 1 bar of boost they will kick some ass on the track for sure.

Met Jon of JN Racing and Ken Robson was there too...all in all a great day with perfect weather!

Nice one :-)

John

An M3 against I think a 1.6 VTEC turbo. I like!.

Though I know of a 1.6 VTEC turbo with 300BHP so no surprises in a 5EXI.

7 Ferrari's in all,

Was a good race even though it was Dylon only again but Mark is making a few changes at last with the engine, so should be good to see them at the next race.
