Cracking pedalling Ray. The photo of your trip out looks amazing. Haha. I think there was something in the water this weekend. Lots of people chucking off the circuit or drifting around. I know I had my fair share of sideways moments. Fun weekend.

Loton Park hill climb Sun 5th Aug

Mike came up trumps and had booked us into a B&B just down the road this was a great move as it meant we didn't have the drive home and back again in the morning, we went down the local and choose from the menu anything you want so long as it was pie and chips then back to the billet for some shuteye,
being just down the road meant we could get to loton early doors nice and refreshed with enough time to walk the track, even scrutineering was a pleasant affair, even though i had the same chap that gave me grief the day before he was all simile and jokes,

1st practice i pushed a bit harder than i normally would and took my tyre temp thingy with me so i could check to see if the pressures and cambers were OK, i was a little bit down on pressure on the 17s compared with the 16's i usually run so i upped it a couple of psi for the next run, this time a did a PB at 62.88 wow i had dropped under the 63's and was well chuffed but it was only practice and didn't really count, checked the temps again and no hot spots in the middle or edge with a temp spread not quite as much as i would like so will put a tad more camber on for Aintree,

Now sit chill for an hour or so have some lunch and a little shut eye, after din, so ner i check the tyre pressures just before we went out and they had dropped a little more than i would liked, so i would do my first run and see how they heated up ready for the last run of the day, it felt like a great run but i posted a time of 63.23 not quite as fast as my PB from the day before checked the tyres and they were ok, now go watch some others and chill for a bit,

On to my last Run, big burn out to get some heat in the tyres ready for the launch, the light turns green so i take a sec to compose myself and drop the clutch , it was a good launch,a little wheel spin followed by a slight bogging down then the revs rising again as we head for the change of gear this was backed up by a 64ft time of 2.33 a very good time for a road going car. back to the run, attack the first corner and take it steady through the next long sweeper then this time i blip the throttle (something i hadn't had the confidence to do on previous runs) before the next turn and the run down to triangle the run felt good but again didn't feel on the edge and in places felt like i could have pushed a tad more i cross the line in what seems like the blink of the eye then wait for the timing board to come into view, 62.04 at first i thought i'd misread it then it suddenly sunk in i had just knock a sec of my PB from the day before so to say i was chuffed didn't even come close, this also netted me 2nd, what started out as a damp squid of a weekend turned out to be absolutely stonking, Mike also achieved all the goals he had set himself but i'll let him fill you in about his time on the hill,

Sorry to rabble on but was a real buzzing weekend
My last run of the day and a PB of 62.04

Had such an excellent weekend with Ray at Loton Park. Went out with the intentions of hitting a 61 second time and managed to achieve that day one and beating it further on the second day with a PB of 61.30. Competition was difficult with Duncan in the MX5 and MK2 Escort. Duncan is a veteran on the hill and competes in the Allswage Championship at Loton. It was good to be on his times and be competitive. Furthermore in the Classic Marques class we have 3 other S2000's, all veterans of Loton and hill climbing. Between them they hold most of the records around the hills/sprints. I was over the moon to see we were keeping on pace with them, and setting comparable times.

Overall, two wins and a new PB for the weekend. No official results as of yet, but I believe that secures me top spot in the ANWCC Hill Climb Championship. That would be an amazing achievement in what is essentially my novice year as a competitive hill climber.
