2019 ended as a bit of a damp squib, whatever that is, and hence we were looking forward to 2020. As everyone knows by now, that turned out to be a very bad idea. I think there’s a good chance the most of 2021 will go the same way as well, especially for those of us that are now marooned in Tier 4. (Hopefully that expression won’t mean much in a few year’s time.)
As you can probably tell, I wrote that a while ago and we’re now in the depths of the mysterious catacombs of lockdown#3. However, there is a glimmer of light in that lots of vaccinations are happening, some of them administered by me!, and perhaps as we get into the summer things will look better.

Well, at least I hope it is. As I write we’re in the second half and surely this part can’t be as rubbish as the first one?

The new season is just about here so it’s time to at least write something here. I’ve done quite a few things over the winter although probably not enough. Here’s a short summary of them.

I guess I ought to stop apologising for being late with these posts, and just accept the fact that I just don’t get around to things quickly enough these days. I’m pretty much retired now (although just starting some new complex systems research) so you’d think I’d have time. Seems to escape me though. And, no, I’m not spending all my time watching daytime TV.

So, time for catching up. As I mentioned, the car was tested a while ago by Anthony Reid and it was featured, along with some other RGB cars, in Autosport a while ago. The review was, in general, pretty favourable towards my car and the formula in general. Anthony is the chap driving the car in the photo on the right.

It’s almost the start of the race season, as I write. So far, I’ve done the club trackday–which was really an opportunity for the car to be track tested for an upcoming Autosport feature–and most recently a Javelin trackday at Cadwell Park. The latter was a wet day but very useful as it gave me a chance to try out a few aspects of a wet setup. To be honest, the car was really good to drive in the wet.
The photo here was taken by Neil Kirby at Cadwell and I think it’s my new favourite race car photo. Neil’s managed to get in a really interesting place to take the photo. I think this must be between Charlies 1 and 2 but I’m not sure really.
More random news from the Sabre t2a front as I get it closer to going racing. One thing that has happened is that I’ve signed up for the club’s pre-season trackday on Feb 24th so I’ve really got to get my act together now. More on that later, I hope. Continue reading “and upwards”
Hard to think of neat names for a post when I’ve just been continuing to do small bits and pieces.
Here’s an idea of the sort of structure that I want to build inside the sidepods to try and use the air a little more effectively. Probably won’t use paper though, more carbon seems a sensible idea. Continue reading “Onwards…”
RGB is being rebranded, and rethought somewhat, for next year. To whet our appetites, we can now watch this:
So, it’s nitty gritty time again. When we were last here I was starting to take the car to bits and I’ve been pressing on with this. Continue reading “Pressing on”
