1/4 mile RWYB day. 08/07/12



  172
As the title says ... After recently attending a RWYB day at Shakespeare county raceway, I couldn't help but want another go!

The next RWYB day to be held at shakespeare is 08/07/12.

I think tickets are £15 on the gate and unlimited runs up the strip £25

Anyone game?

Not sure mate, i'm not sure my sump tank would pass scrutineering at the minute,
if they looked under my car they'd see nothing but wet oil all over the sump and gear linkage.

It's only a very slight leak, but every time the car get's up to temp what's on there runs. :dapprove:
I guess I could wipe it all off and find a new sump guard to hide it all. lol

I've got the second half of my insurance to pay for next month aswell,
another £240 on the car before I get anything else fixed.

Bummer about the oil leak. just cover it up and carry on:quiet:
was going to try and get some pics of it from somebody who knows what they are doing with a camera

Yeah I could do, it doesn't get through much oil or drip that much, so I could just clean it and cover it up. :evil:

Seeing as Shakespeare raceway is pay on the day, I might still go for a laugh.
Depends how poor I am at the time.

I know I'm new here but you guys are seriously recommending hiding an oil leak and then take the car racing!!!!

Ignoring the dangers of dropping oil on track, but that is just gunna end up in killing your engine, get it fixed properly

It's the smallest weep from the sump gasket, it hardly ever drips, the engine hardly ever needs topping up,
it's just residual oil on the sump and gear linkage.

If I wiped it all off and put a sump guard on it woudn't drip on anything.

I'd get it fixed now if I hadn't just spent £200 on a new rad last week, and £450 in insurance this month.

TBH it's unlikly i'll even go, i've ran out of money for things like fun.

Just called in to this And spoke to the marshals and it's completely called off


i was going to pm you about this and say exactly the same.

my mum and her other half are traders there and i got a phone call at about 11 to say they've cancelled the meet due to the rain.

i'll find out when the next RWYB day is and let you know later on this evening.

major shitter :(
