Hello East Anglia!

Is anyone else attending this on Sunday? I note the entries list is a little sparse at the moment, just me and one other. Is anyone else considering it? A bit of good natured competition!

It's a series of timed runs (minimum of 8 I believe) Woodbridge is an airfield track so the layout chenges but it will probably be similar to the one on Javelins website (have a look at the 'Club Events' section). Alfarian - hope to see you at Blyton, I am going to try to do the whole season if I can, money and tolerant family allowing! :D

Hi,

It was a great day, although only me and Vaughn with his GTV turned up in Alfas we share the day with the Toyota Sprint series so at least there were a lot of other people there to run against.

The weather held out most of the day although there was a very little rain around lunchtime that made things interesting. After the penultimate run the rain came down with a bit more conviction and that's when I called it a day as I know I couldn't have gone any quicker. I was pretty happy that the car held out but Woodbridge is hard on the tyres so I reckon they have one more session in them ;) (I have gearbox trouble - too much power + sticky tyres = broken gearbox , we had debated slicks but as the kindly gentlemen who fixed my gearbox last time said "if you take slicks take a spare gearbox"!)

It would be great to see some more Alfas at the next one so there is some more 'marque' competition but I reckon we more than held our own amongst the TSS boys and girls. Especially when you consider that most of those are caged out race cars, including a lot of GT4's with launch control etc.

The next one is Blyton on the 13th May, bit of a trek from North Essex but I am hoping to convince the 'team' that it's a good idea.

There should be some pics up on the TSS website on Wednesday night which I am reliably informed will include our cars. I also have some which I will post later this week when I get them off the camera.

Round 2 at Blyton on Sunday. Looking forward to trying out a new circuit as I haven't been there before.

If anyone fancies it you can pay on the day (Alfarian, will you be making it this year?)

Looks like me and a Bertone attending at the moment, with about 35 Toyota's I should imagine!

I think a couple of other people have shown an interest and so maybe a few could be tempted?!

All details on the Javelin website, location etc

Hi Simon, I may pop over for a nosy :) I was going to have a bash in a gtv I have been cobbling together, but unfortunately not ready yet :( I think most people will be at Cars in the Park this Sunday.

Didn't realise that was on this weekend.

Maybe you'll have the GTV ready for Croft later in the year :) look forward to seeing you if you make it
