Chris, I think Live Stream is normal now on the UK major hills, it is really good. That Shelsley event was their first open event of 2020.

I'm excited and nervy but looking forward to it.
Practice Sat, 'race' Sunday.

Will need a day to get the car ready, then the trailer.

Worked all day in the Slow-Cook oven of a garage getting the Lola-Porsche ready for the first hillclimb of the year for us and at Shelsley Walsh no less.

Freshly cut slicks, fresh oil in March but never started. Hasn't run since end of last September, but fresh fuel and on the 3rd 3 second churn it fired and ticked over at 1100 rpm, just right.
Got the trailer all cleaned and greased, battery charged, about ready to go!

Yes, slightly odd to drive after a full 12 months to Shelsley Walsh today to drop the Lola off, but good to see it all again.
One of my old Saloon class friends has decided to make a return in a Mallock in Sports Libre, so Andrew is with me and a rapid full-spec Radical, dual driven, so 4 in the class.
We have 2 practice runs tomorrow and one Sunday morning before the hammer goes down.

My plan is to simply have a nice weekend, Shelsley is the 'Monte Carlo' of the hills, always full of atmosphere, and I doubt C19 is going to get in the way!
If anyone is following the weekend on live streaming, we are car #51

I have 2 at Loton later then back into hibernation for the car, and back to my Honda restoration for me.

2021 getting closer!

Good luck! As you say, it's good to be back out; I'm sharing son's BMW at the Abingdon sprint, I'd better be careful!

Good luck Graham...

For those wanting to follow Shelsley today, this should be a link to their youtube live feed. Starts in 4 hours from now.

Had a GOOD day with the Lola!
Nice to report that fact.
Great to be back amongst it all.

3 practice runs today, not sure of the times but far quicker than I thought I would be, about 1.5 secs off my PB, happy with that.

Oldest car and driver in the class!

Car ran perfectly, all the gears happened to my command, just a bit too heavy off the start line @2.19 secs.

1st run was 33.13 with a2.21 and 96 across the line.

2nd run was 33.61 with a 2.18 and just shy of 100 across the line.

Didnt see the 3rd run so cant report.

Car sounds gorgeous.

Yes, just caught up with Live Feed and the numbers, but thank you.

Must try harder, but the big Radical is miles ahead and about 40 years of technology ahead too!

Might be rain tomorrow......

Thanks!
Had a very wet practice and first run today, drying fast this afternoon, 3rd in class behind the mighty Radical.

Car was great, few operator errors, but age still eroding the speed!

A Very Nice Weekend.

The race day dawned sunny with a bright Californian blue sky, a chill in the aor and a really nice Clubbie feeling for Loton's first meeting of 2020 and under 'Covid 19' rules.

Great day, perfect weather, cool air, bright sun and 16 c max, just perfect for these Old Timers.
3 in the class, Martin is the fast bike engine Sylvia, Derek in the Oh-so-fab Maguire Mini he's had for decades, and me.
Going to be tough, but this is my fav hill, my hill so down to brass tacks...

So, a series of good times and some killer starts, all sub 2 seconds but a way off my PB however, I can boast (sorry) a FIRST IN CLASS.

The old pair did the job and the car was great, class mates were, well, mates, and that Mini is to die for.

Interestingly, decided not to stress the car with any tyre warming pre-start and my starts were faster than when I have pre warmed.
Lesson there.

I notice however I think the UJ in the NS rear hub is in trouble (knackered) so that may be the end of 2020, will check it out next week.

Lovely and a great day.

Love it!
