...are coming on Wednesday! We're meeting at JCW to be fitted for the seat & harnesses etc. Then we've got a month and a bit to run them in before the trackday at Goodwood on 4th April. Anyone coming to that?

Hi

Doh, of course it's the 3rd of April, sorry. Dinger & Monsta & anybody else, it'd be great to see you there. I'll be the one in the loo :)

Richard told me a week or so ago that he'd need about an hour for the workshop guys to set the seat up (it's bolted in place, not on runners) so it's at the right distance/height/angle of dangle for me. Ditto the harnesses, the idea being that they can then fix them both nice & quickly on the morning of an event. This assumes that you want to revert to the original seat & inertia reel 3-point belt for the road, which I don't, but it'll still need to be set up for you.

Richard said it should make life easier for us both to be there as Kevin in the workshop can give us both the spiel at the same time.

See you Wednesday!

Andy

I'd be quite interested in going to Goodwood to watch the mini's around the track as I only live about 30 mins up the road. Do you know wheter anyone can get in to watch or is it just the people with the racing minis??

Also if anyone can get in do you have to pay to watch??
:p

3rd of April is a Weds, is this right? Is the race in the evening then? If so then I'll be up for it. I'll have the Velvet Beauty then, so I'll be wanting to drive her everywhere.
Any more details, or are they on the Challenge website?

Sorry just looked at the website and it's a track day, so I'm afraid I'll be at work. Have a quality day though.

Anymore events coming up in the South East?

Hi all

Just spoke to the Challenge organizer, and she says it's fine for anyoneto come along to watch on the trackday, as long as there's not too many (max 10 she said) - it being a weekday, I can't see that being a problem.

Look forward to meeting you all!

Andy

I just booked a day off!

More events in the South East?? John Cooper Works visit on 13th April! (I think you might already been down for that)

Otherwise, meet us at the London 2 Brighton run on 19th May(in Brighton not actually on the run)

More details coming soon....

Sign me up for the 3rd April

I'll take a day off to come (assuming work will let me) - should have my JCW (non-challenge) car on Monday!

Are you going to make a list for who can go in the "10"?

No, don't worry, I'm sure it'll be ok for anyone who's interested to come along, as long as non-Challengers keep the Challenge paddock clear (there's a big carpark nearby anyway), and the burger van can cope with the throngs :)

Andy

PS Have fun with your new toy!
