Hi all, don't forget that the Moto Arena opens it's doors for the first off road evening on Tuesday 4th. Hot and cold food will be available this time (no problem with the pipes freezing) and it will be a chance to practice for the Silverstone MCC event that is on next Saturday (8th).

Booking in as normal from around 6.00 ....... get on down to the Moto Arena in sunny Silverstone, you know it makes sense :thumbsup::thumbsup:

No special new years deal i.e first eve's race is free? :thumbsup:

Bums on seats as they say, plus you will make mega bucks on food and drink

Just a idea (dont ask, dont get!)

Cheers

6pm although you can get there earlier as the MA is open all day. I think Lee usually gets there about 4 and puts the track out.

Just watched the video, the facility looks great!

If I am over that part of the country on work I'll bring my racing gear and come along.

What tyres do you guys run in there?

What tyres do you guys run in there?Mark, it's a bit of a grey area (for some) as it depends on just how much carpet/tarmac the layout contains.

For me, it's yellow minispikes every time as on the tarmac there's nothing better and they are very forgiving on the carpet. I used one set of fronts and two sets of rears for around 8 meetings so it works out cheap and you can use up all your part worns before you acetone them. For others it's yellow minipins but I find them a bit "grabby" on the carpet and nowhere near enough on the tarmac. It's just down to personal preference really, but if you've got worn sets of both it's best to bring them along and try to see what suits you.

Hope that helps :)

Hi mate, not sure what the lads are running on their 2wd but the options are probably yellow staggered ribs, yellow minispikes or yellow minipins on the front and yellow minispikes or yellow minipins on the rear :)

I'm reliably informed that there could be quite a lot more carpet down this time so judgment on the tyres might have to be left to on the day. I'm also pretty sure that the Moto Arena shop has stock of Schumacher tyres, perhaps Matt can confirm this? :)

Adam F

Ran staggers on the front and yellow spikes on the back on Tuesday and it worked really well.

Reliably informed that Minipins will be the order of the day for Saturday as Alec says it will have a lot more carpet.

mk2kompressor

Yup, we have good stock of yellow;

Minipins f&r
Stagger ribs

And loads of inserts :)
