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→

Yes I know, late again. My excuse is that I’ve really done nothing to the car that’s worthwhile talking about. I’ve just done a bunch of racing. If I’m honest I have been wondering if I’m getting to the end of my time as a racer but I have enjoyed a few highlights of the end of the season. Before that, the photo on the right is from the meeting at Croft as described earlier. Wet, as I said… Continue reading Catching up→
…even though you might be justified in thinking this given the level of activitiy hereabouts. As I’m fed up with William complaining all the time it seems to be about time to catch you all up. So, settle in kids, and let’s get going… Continue reading I’m not dead→
Not posted for a while, and not much to talk about really. After doing the new sidepods I’ve been working on the rear bodywork. Here’s the mould all together in one piece waiting for the layup to start. Continue reading Working the body→
