Great effort and club presence everybody. I do like white wheels on a car. Broad selection of transaxles. Really annoying about the paint chip Linda!

After the first timed run our own Nige was in second place :woohoo: I think he unfortunately got bumped a place in the last timed run to third. Fine effort from himself and recently tweaked car. :beer:

Thanks Steve. I think 3rd place was based on my program handicap (previous best time) but I assume that because I beat my handicap in both practice runs it was adjusted before the competitive runs so I expect to be well down the list.
Anyway, I am only interested in beating myself so yesterday was a good day :smile:
As for my car tweeks; yesterday I actually felt that my car handled something like I believe a Porsche should. It felt properly good for the first time since I bought it, with decent grip (on road tyres) and nice balance. Increased spring rates front and rear with a reduced ride height made a BIG difference, even though the wheel alignment is still far from ideal. Yesterday I really enjoyed driving the thing!

Due to the overwhelming success of the event this year, it’s confirmed to return as another 2 day event next year. Provisional date of last weekend in June. I’d suggest we look to piggy back this event as a regional if not national event for the club. PCGB will be co organising with Bugatti Owners Club.

That is very good news. I think it's fair to say that I will definitely be there, whether competing or just spectating. A club presence would be fabulous

Ideally I will be competing both days. Either BOC on one day and PCGB the next or PCGB on both.

I might do selected rounds. Can’t afford a full season on both time and money given they are two day events
