A moment in time.

Goodwood Trackday

SPR Races For The First Time At The GRRC Sprint

She may not have been the quickest car there but PC and Brian set the 11th and 12th fastest start times measured over 0-64ft, its just a shame the other 2.4 miles were not quite as quick.

Steve McQueen’s quote from Le Mans summed up the day: ‘Racing is life, everything else, before and after, is just waiting around ‘ – brilliant!

Marcus’s Motorsport Radical Breaks Cover At GRRC Sprint

A mixed day of fortunes for Marcus and his amazingly quick new toy. Straight out the box in practice he set a flying lap of 93 secs, seriously fast. Sadly on his first timed run the drive chain snapped to end his day in disappointment sitting on the start/finish line. We all felt for him. The good news is we know when he returns next year he will be on for a top ten finish, if not top five, IF he has the ‘balls’ to leave everything on the track.

SPR – Trackday Goodwood 13.3.10

Brian said today; ‘This is me having my mid-life crises, and you know what its bloody marvelous!’

Here are a couple of pictures of our first trackday with SPR at the historic Goodwood Race Circuit. You can see more pictures under the ‘SPR 2010 Race Diary’ page.

SPR Laps Goodwood (Tentatively)


Footage from my first laps of Goodwood in the newly track-prepared SPR.  The brakes and the tyres have been sorted – the car now goes around corners and stops when you press the pedal in the middle!

Goodwood Sprint Practice Day

Marcus and I have just got back from a very damp practice morning ahead of the Sprint on Easter Monday. I can safely say that Marcus’s Radical is VERY fast, while SPR is alot slower – no surprise there – however our little Lotus should be competitive in her class. For Marcus this was the end of a four month wait to drive ‘The Red Devil’ as the Radical has been nick named. He was more than happy with his purchase and it certainly lived up to expectation.

You can read full details on my runs on the SPR Race Diary page.

Jo hits the track

The wife has caught the bug. Here is Jo preparing to go out on track with one of Goodwood’s driving instructors. After a slow and nervous start she soon got into the groove. Trouble was at the end of the day Jo said “when can I go again”!

Also note SPR’s new light weight Rota wheels (shod with slicks), they look great and help with turn in.
