Trax Silverstone New GP 2010 MGBV8 trying to stay with Evo Race cars

My first time on the New GP circuit. I should have spent time learning the lines but got cought up in the excitement. Fantastic track, cant wait to go back and learn the lines properly. My MGB GT V8 did well to nearly keep with some very fast cars.

330bhp MGB V8 v 540bhp Evo @ Silverstone Trax 2012.f4v
330bhp MGB V8, (980kg) Having fun with a very fast 540bhp (1200kg) evo. First test of my new rear wing and front splitter. Very Positive results. Fast turn oversteer has been virtually eliminated while top speed is hardly affected. I can carry more speed in the turns without the back end stepping out. The evo has a lot more straight line speed so was impressed with my little MGB. Oh and Gavin was slowing me down in the passenger seat LoL. Impressed with overtaking the Noble, that thing should fly. I could have dived down the inside of the little Vauxhall but decided to just let him know I was there by showing a front wheel, so was dissapointed when he blocked me down the straight.

Sebring MGB V8 at Brands Hatch
Trackday at Brands Hatch Indy circuit. Gradually got quicker all day. On final lap went a bit hot into paddock Hill bend with a 4 wheel drift puting 2 wheels over the rumble strip. Car is Fantastic, very pleased. Had a training session with an instructor, well worth the small fee.





4.8L 150mph MGB GT V8 with homemade DRS.
Playing with my home brewed DRS system on the V8 MGB. Awesome cornering ability takes some getting used to. Speedo still goes off the scale (140mph) helped by the reduced drag.

Very Fast V8 MG @ PCAD Combe 27th April 2013 lapping some quick cars.
My first session of the day at 10.00. First test of the modified rear wing with DRS Knocked at least 2 secs off my previous best time. Also I ported the Merlin heads and felt slightly better top end power, The car is awesome to drive and very stable.





MGB V8: Starting from the back ...again
An electrical connector fell off at the start of qualifying so we never got a timed lap. So... back of the grid again... And another funny race. I made it up to 5th at the driver change and looking at the lap charts, my fastest lap would have put us on the front row. Somehow I don't think the race would have been so much fun from P2 though...

10:20 Session @ Trax 2012 Silverstone - Track prep'd Evo
My first time out around Silverstone's full GP circuit in my Track Prep'd Evo IV running in low Boost mode (400bhp) It is an amazing circuit with lots to learn, few issues with track day etiquette by some drivers but still great fun, even got told off by the Mrs for using the Anti-Lag on the drive back to the stand at the end of the vid lol :-)

MGB V8 @ Silverstone arena Trackday with Lotus on track (passenger comments)
For those not familiar with trackdays, overtaking is only on the straights and by consent and on the left side. Took a passenger for a session and his comments are enthusiastic and quite funny (hope you enjoyed the ride Dave). Due to recent rear suspension changes the cars handling is much improved with less oversteer.





Work on my MGB by Classic Car Services, MGOC recommended
If you view this video on fullscreen you might appreciate the workmanship better!! I purchased my MGB in 1999. Late 2007 I decided to give it a facelift so chose Classic Car Services, Ledian Farm Industrial Estate, Leeds, Maidstone from my MG Owners Club recommended directory. There were several times I had to return to the garage because of things I was unhappy with. The bonnet did not fit as good as the old one. The overdrive did not work after a new wiring loom was fitted, it was suggested that I had been driving around since 1999 with overdrive on, it transpired that they had not connected it correctly. I later found the windscreen heating ducting was missing. I thought the general finish on the car was very poor and was better before I took the car to Classic Car Services. I had the opportunity to let MG Owners Club know of my feelings on an online questionnaire they ask members to complete annually. In January 2010 the car, which is garaged had a flurry of snow on the boot lid for 2 days, when this melted it left the surface pock marked. I contacted MGOC to ask for advice, they suggested I contact the garage. When I contacted Classic Car Services in January they remembered me and asked me to take the car to them for inspection which I did. I was told it was a paint defect and they would respray the boot after sanding back in February or March (Free of charge). By 22nd of March I had not heard from them so gave them a call, they couldn't remember telling me they could repair the paint in February / March but are in the middle of a job right now and would repair the paint in April. By this time the paint had flattened but still left imperfections on the boot lid which I told them about. It is now June 2010 and I have heard nothing from Classic Car Services so decided to replace parts on my car which were given to me as Christmas presents. I am still finding things wrong with my MGB which were not there before using this MG Owners Club recommended dealer.
