Kames 31 July 2011

I haven't given up on this blog, honest! - its just that I have been quite busy with family and work recently to do the updating.
Anyway, my last event was at Kames on 31 July where I was out in the racingPug against the usual tough competition in the small modified saloon class. Realistically, I was aiming to beat my PPB (Personal Peugeot Best) time of 102.64sec.
Conditions were relatively good - only a short shower in the morning which had no real effect on the track conditions.
In the end, I managed to shave a few hundredths off my time to get 102.60 secs.
I have to say that the racingPug never missed a beat all day and whilst I'm growing a wee bit weary of always coming last, it is still giving me loads of fun.
Having said that, it is time to start thinking about selling it. I do feel a degree of responsibility to try to ensure it stays in the sprint/hillclimb fraternity because I know how much effort Adam and his dad (the previous owners) put into the build.
So, I'll be hoping it goes to a novice driver as a great wee starter car (it ticks all the boxes - no need to MOT, tax or insure it, more grip than power and all the proper safety gear).
If you know anyone who might be interested, point them in my direction please.....
