Quick News – 2007

5.3.07 – After an amazing first season I’m back for another one. The Car’s been tested at Mallory and the count down timer is showing it isn’t long till Sunday! I can’t wait..

11.3.07 – First Race of the Season and my first ever DNF! 😦

14.3.07 – Mallory race Report goes live (click on “The 2007 Season” to see it)

19.3.07 – The car’s fixed! 🙂 It looks like the problem was a loose magic eye in the dizzy. Hopefully we’ll be back up to full speed for Donington

23.3.07 – Ok so it’s not Friday yet! But when it is I’ll be building beds in the lorry, ready to sleep in Friday night. Fixing the rear lights on my car and trying to persuade the number plate it wants to sit vertically!

25-3-07 – Got my highest ever finish and first elevated points in a fantastic race at Donington – Why not read the race report now! Just click on “2007 Season”

26-3-07 – Still on cloud nine after Donington my week got even better on Monday when I got a call from Femtrack (the women only track day company) they’d just collected a brand new Honda Civic Type R and wondered if I’d like to help them shake it down at Cadwell. There were offering a brand new car, a fantastic race track and tuition from Graeme Glew who used to run the race school there! 🙂

28-03-07 – A late start caused by thick fog at Cadwell meant we took to the track at 13:45. Graeme demonstrated what the car could do first then it was my turn to get behind the wheel. Slowly building up speed I was very impressed with how well the car handled. Graeme’s instruction was really good and he quickly identified the three corners where I was loosing speed. A few more sessions and I was really starting to get the hang of it. I was even attacking Hall Bends properly – my bogey corner of last season. Unfortunately the day was cut short by an accident but I had an hour and a half in the car and came away with lots of things to work on. There are so many points which are going to help that I’ve now covered a circuit diagram with notes. I don’t want to forget any of it before we race at Cadwell in June! – Ok so this isn’t really quick news but it was great fun and I wanted to tell you all about it!

29-05-07 – Things have been manic, since last post I’ve raced 3 times, tested twice, crashed it once and driven about 5 thousand miles! Got a new nose cone rad and race suit and finally found a heater for the lorry although it was in Wales…read the race reports to find out more!
