I know someone who tried to sell you an SD1 once though and you bought a rusty old shell of one for less money, is your eyesight improving Deuts?

Ah! Yes I did, but sadly it wasn't for sale then, shame as it was a nice example.

I equalled my PB of 50.29 the other weekend at Prescott, good that I'm being consistent, but also frustrating that at elusive fraction of a second is still there and I'm not in the 49s.

I can't remember what my times were there to know how faster you are

How far away is it for you? Worth going back to basics and walk it to think about your lines? Not on a race day I know but if its not too far?

The last TVR day they had, the fastest full racers were doing it in about the same, the road cars 52-54 iirc.

Well he did well to beat the Cerbera by that much in a Griffith.

I wonder what 174 did wrong on the 2nd run

Harry’s Garage video this week is at Prescott. He takes his Jaguar Project 8 up the hill as sets a reasonable time.
