Pete,

What's grip like in the wet? It's been about 15 years since I raced there in the wet but on Wednesday night as it got late (and slightly damp) I found the track became very slippy.

Does the wet have the same affect as the damp?

EDIT: Reason I ask is the weather forecast for tomorrow afternoon is for rain.

Yes Luke it gets tricky in the damp and wet!

We generally find that BB Greens work very well with Silver Cut Staggers on a 2wd and BB green fronts on a 4wd.

If it's pouring with rain the grip can actually come up. I've raced in soaking conditions and been very surprised by how much grip there is at Stotfold.

If only damp BB whites can work too.

I'd recommend a selection of the above for Fast Forward on Wednesdays as when the damp sets in it can get a little slippery.

Hope that helps mate!

Hiya!

No, there's no meeting on this Sunday as we will be at the BRCA EoE Regional.

Racing resumes the following Wednesday!

Come join our Facebook page for further race meeting dates, search for Stotfold if you've not already liked the page.
