You need Pro-Seat to make you a seat insert so you can see over the dash !

Just a quick brief. Qualified P19. End of first lap 10. Ian then got it to P2.

Had some issues on first pit stop.

Recovered to P 14 4th in class. Another 6 hours tomorrow:))

Well a bit disappointing really. :( :(

Secure in P14 With one driver change to do Ian came into the pits early and unexpectedly ( the radio was not enjoying the wet). He had no brakes :shock: :shock:

The pads on the front had disappeared. The heat had got to the near side caliper and we had no spare. We did have some secondhand pads and so fitted those rebuilt the caliper, bled the brakes, refueled and I went out.

The brake pedal was very far away so I had to submarine down to reach the pedal could not see very well. We finished but lost a lot of places.

Full report later!

Car looks fanastic in those pics. Don't think I've seen it before.
