Well Im back now. All I can say is Southend was mental. 38 or 39 Clios at one stage, I had to block the roundabout to get all of us through and along the seafront in one line, then we couldnt even get a parking space cos all the day trippers were still there!
We went further down and found a private showground - actually a grassy car park just on the seafront which we filled up, then when we got chucked off after an hour or so and headed back to the main strip, parked up round the back in the big coach park. A top night out, and SO MANY CLIOS! Passers by couldnt believe it.
Cheers to everyone who came along, another brilliant meet, in fact the best yet. So much for the Scoobynet crowd then...
There are Legends which run on the short ovals and Legends which run on conventional racetracks. They are essentially the same car (just a few safety mods for the bigger tracks).
Oval racing is a lot more difficult than it looks (which is why I havent treid it yet) - a Legend is a real handful out of slow corners (theyre short and wide so they swap ends easily).
I think they hit about 70 - 75mph on some Ovals. The car will do about 125mph given a long enough run (like today at Rockingham). They will go a bit quicker with a taller final drive ratio but they wont let us use it in the UK. I think theyre afraid well take off!
BTW there was a fairly well-used Williams in the Paddock at Rockingham today (blue naturally, big dent in the bonnet) - anyones?
