Well done Tim.
See you shortly.

Keith do you reckon you can get some audio for us from the commentary.
We want to put a sample club video together.

Hi Guys,

It was great to catch up with Tim and his dad, Keith and Kev. Had quite a few technical problems with the Golfs. Duncs car stuck in third during practice. Malcolms car had a problem with the clutch. When you depressed it the engine tried to shake itself out of its mounts. My car had the nearside hub nut start to undo which was fortunately easily fixed by re-torquing it.

On looking at the videos from Castle Combe & Donnington compared to Cadwell, my engine noise is very different and it seems to have lost some fizz! We will get it on the rolling road and look into this. Maybe Dick Dastardly has tapped into my bluetooth ignition and changed it. Surely he couldnt have got round the pass code of 0000 or 1234?

This winter, the Golf will have new shock absorbers fitted and heavier springs as we think the handling can be improved a lot. The nose of the car is too lively and external video shows the car getting bouncy through gooseneck when other cars are not. Particularly as the race goes on and the oil gets hot in the shock absorbers.

Overall the Akai still went well and having fun trying to improve my driving. Lots of mistakes in the first race lost me time.

All the best,

Fantastic footage - some nice clean racing, from what we could see from your camera.
