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
The evo has a lot more straight line speed so was impressed with my little
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.
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.
MGB chasing black ferrari
Charity day at castle combe. Ferreri driver cant handle an MGB being faster. On seeing the MGB about to
overtake he suddenly dives into the pit lane. Makes me Laugh! Had my
friends 8 year old son in the car he thought it was great. Well done Ben.
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.
MGB chasing Ariel Atom & quick lap 1m16.6
Damp Winter track day at Castle Combe. Ignition problems solved! turned out
to be the crank sensor gap was too small.
Hounded an Ariel Atom then a quick lap in the 1m 16s
on a slightly damp track. More upgrades to come this winter possibly might
368bhp V8 MGB @ Silverstone Grand Prix Circuit.
Trackday with Lotus on track, Sept 30th 2013. Having some fun with a
Porsche 911 cup racer. New clutch is working great but have now found some
new issues. I need to fit a swirl pot as I get fuel starvation below 3/4 of
a tank. Also there is an intermittent backfire at about 5500rpm.
Taking it back to the rolling road this week for final mapping and see how
much power its making.
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...
