We will be parking inside with the Constructors Car Club.

Always an awesome weekend of racing.

Caught up with your car in the rather dusty Manfeild Park Stadium,as always a beutififul machine.What size is your steering wheel? Seems smaller than most 7's,any draw backs?
Racing today was pretty good with large fields,I counted 34 cars in One race.

Hi Kevin, sorry we missed you!!! Steering wheel is a Momo team 280 (280mm). Most are 300mm I think, but that 20mm makes a difference for entry and exit from the car.

It is pretty heavy whilst staionary but great once the wheels are turning.

Wasn't it dusty....I think I would have preferred to park the car outside in hindsight...

There was some great racing today that is for sure, the Bruce Manon Escort beating 3 muscle cars which were on his tail was great to watch....that car is just awesome!! Also Mikes Levin was looking great out there....

Couldn't make it yesterday after the car had a bad miss on Friday (easy fix though, one of the coils had failed, put a new one in and was away)

Went along today, the dust was bad again - but glad I parked inside though as the rain came down pretty heavy from 2pm-3pm and showers off and on before that.

As always the racing was great - like how they have massive mixed fields with massive muscle cars racing along side a 7's and sports cars etc..

I left about 3pm when the rain cleared and managed a dry run home!

You were lucky to get a dry run home. I was racing in the Historics and the conditions were atrocious for a while-only 5 of the 27 entries in that class were mad enough to race. 10 minutes later it was sunny again!
