PRE-SEASON PREP IS WELL UNDERWAY, AND SUDDENLY THERE'S A DEADLINE...
With a fairly relaxed winter, by Kutuka standards, in that we haven't built a new car, the focus of our attention had wandered a little. But with the season only 10 weeks away, the more awake member of the team brought the preparations into the foreground, by booking the cars onto a Cadwell trackday for 15th March...
The aim is to have both cars ready for action by then, and there's a lot to do.
At £99 for a full day of open-pitlane trackday at the best circuit on the calendar, who can resist? It's a lot more sensible for the more northern crowd than the club trackday at Brands, it's half the cost for twice the run, with £100 less to find for transport, and no stupid rules about squealing tyres.
So much better value per pound that Cadwell-hater Lyddall has been persuaded to drag Eleanor out of the cowshed and clear her throat for the day. With Roger "The Beard" Webster on board it's quickly becoming the alternative XJS racer trackday.
Merry bleedin' Christmas people. See you on track in 2010!
