Went to batley club meeting today [the outdoor venue] and raced my Pred outdoors for the first time.

Really liked how it drives and handles, it really suits my driving style. The meeting was a good test for the car but would have been a lot better if we had sunny weather rather than on/off snow!!

Yeah it was a the sides nearer the end of the banked corner. but obviously got worse when the snow came down heavier and settled [soaking the track] and the grass etc. which is whn we stopped. The three rounds that we had though were reasonably good, even though we raced in the snow for a couple of them! Bring on the regionals :)

Was a good day today despite the random weather :woot:, had a go with the pred on the track thanks to Andy and it was actually really nice to drive :thumbsup:, my B44 was pretty good today but needed a setup up for outdoors, also needs a lil rebuild and clean now aswell :thumbdown:, qualified in between andy and matt at the end of the day so was pretty good, enjoyed my first day at batley outdoors :) shame we had to abandon due to the crazy weather! Jimmy your car was looking great today, I couldn't get in a rhythem and keep up, maybe next time round when i have my car setup properly, you gotta clean your durga for the first time now:lol:

**** SERIOUS POINT****

What were the cars like over the bumps today? Because i was struggling with my S4 today but i only had 2 runs with the car one in the dry and one in the wet. I was running the setup i had been using indoors so that may of been the problem. First time for me too outdoors with my 4wd.

link added to the photo page now - the photo page isn't finished but it might take a while to load (that's a feature haha) because I've now put every gallery / report I've ever done on that one page.
