Nick,

Is that for pitting or sleeping ???
If it's pitting then come in with us lot (Model Images),
I know for the end of season finals there won't be loads of us in there.
The F3's there is only Joe i believe as i am pitting for him!!!

Hey Jon,

I was actually thinking about camping over night but I think i've sorted it now. I spoke to John about pitting with you boys at both and he was fine about it so all sorted on that front.

Thanks mate, see you at Silverstone!

They where ok once you got the hang of it but i only jumped hem 2 then 1 because i would preffer to finish the run that to possibly break it and not finish any runs. I think it will be more front shock towers than anything.

I may have space for sleeping in mine at the F3's Nick (as i may not be using the tent at night), and possibly pitting also if you get stuck.

Ashley if you watched the top 15-20 drivers, no-one was flying the triples they were all taking them as 2 then a 1, it's the quickest way round trust me.

To be honest the only breakages I saw, were from people not paying attention to the quick guys, trying to clear the triples, but getting it totally wrong.

The track will be on the grass, we probably won't use the single jump or the table top on the far side of the track as we feel it is just too far away.

Agreed with the table top i think the straight was a bit far away at the weekend often just rubbed along the pipe. I didnt relaly watch the top lads i was to busy fiderling with the car changing things and charging etc. But iloved the hump at the bottom of the straight i only crashed tehre once.

Thanks mate, will see how I get on but i've now at least sorted a small two man tent for sleeping so that's one thing less to worry about

Oh well - it must just have been me then.

I cleared them in one almost every time 'cos I could do that consistently. I tried doing "2+1" a few times - and it cost me two rear shock towers.

The landing zone between 2 and 3 just seemed tiny, and I couldn't hit it accurately. Hey, I never claimed to be a top driver...

So after the weekends meeting at Silverstone, now for the predictions for the F3/4/5's.....

Can anyone really bet against it being a straight fight between Nick & Stan??

Anyone else have any thoughts??
