Re: Knockhill Classics

Built as as a rally car but will get sorted soon enough. Lowerered for a start but all escorts handle better than most autos anyway.

The Marshall guys love their escorts big time and will bring a lot to the Sport.

Re: Knockhill Classics

Wet weather prevailed but interesting day nonetheless. Fitted a set of 185 soft compound Yokos to cut through the rain and they worked quite well allowing me to pass the blue 911 only for him to tag me at the end of the mainstraight on the last lap. The rain disappeared and I fitted new 205's and wo...

Re: Knockhill Classics

Some hard racing today. Two good starts got me past the Europa and the mk2 BDG only to be swallowed up as my tyres seemed to go off causing oversteer on the right handers early in both races. Mirrors were full of Porsche and Escort going into the hairpin as I held them up for a few laps. The big Per...

Re: VIDEO : Track action in HD - Knockhill 2010

What a pair of hooligans, great to watch. The turbo tattie and the Howat, no slouches either. Some interesting cornering techniques at the hairpin though. Good weekend for me and the old pinto beat the BDG off the line in race 2, car has never gone better.

Re: gmsc Track Night Monday Night

Will try and get along on Monday. Off to Kames for British Championship Sprint tomorrow, 100 entries and good weather in prospect. Marshalls always required for this and you get a lunch voucher and some travel expenses I believe. Novices assigned to experienced marshalls and you get close up of F1 t...

Re: Classic Sports and Saloons Knockhill

Thanks Martin. Alan Gunn has been on the blower since last year and has finally decided to have a go. You know he has that lovely mk1 and he has swapped the cossy for a rally tuned pinto to be eligible for the series. His car really handles so it will be interesting to see how it goes. Noted your ne...
