I always let the engine temp needle get to half way before pushing hard. Looks to be a nice car.
Whats the spec?

I let the oil temps and transmission temp get to 70
It takes slightly longer than the engine temp getting to middle

I wait until they all at least 65 degrees. The gearbox takes the longest by the time that's 65 the others will be over 70.

Congrats, nice pics.

I'm pretty sure 300 miles would be a world record warm up, temps will defo be fine!

Or did you mean how long to learn the car?

When I first drove one I was amazed by the gearbox, fell in love with it quickly. Try switches into R mode, half throttle, and change up around 3.5-4k rpm through the gears 1st to 4th. Awesome pick-up and only tickling the potential.

It'll take a few days to get used to the car, the way it wiggles its hips, and controlling the rear end with the gearbox like 1st 2nd 3rd through a roundabout, changing up as the rear twitches.

Overtaking is awesome too, 3rd gear overtake and you're doing 100 scary easy. Watch out for those scamera vans though, it's an easy car to break every limit in.

Good lad. They're much more enjoyable than bathrooms and carpets.

And cheaper!

Missed something quick after getting rid of the spec c type 20 which I ran in the first year of Time Attack.

I am glad to be back and love the banter on the forum

Lovely car mate. Gorgeous in white! Mines a stage 4 and Neil from Litchfield told me just leave the boost map on - it's fine as long as you warm the car up before thrashing.

Once its warm (and dry) don't be afraid to give it the beans. It's the reason to own cars like this. Don't worry it won't bite if you've got traction control on.

Have fun!

Where you based?
