No, unfortunately there were not enough entries to justify hiring the circuit on the Fri. for just the GTRs so it is now on Sat 29th March , the same day the Evos and Scoobies are there. If you still want to enter can you contact Mechell on 08451252623 to see if there are any spaces left for the Sat.Is Round 1 still set to 28th March??
Glad it was arranged for the GTR's to compete on the same day for this event :thumbsup:........................see you there :smokin:Just to let you all know the first round of the GTROC/Litchfield Sprint is now taking place on Sat. 29th March Castle Combe, we have quite a few entries and if the people who PM'd me get theirs in there should be one or two rather exciting cars taking part :clap:
It is FREE for spectators to attend, cars should be on track from about 9.00am and there will be plenty of on track action as there are over 60 Evos and Subarus entered. Hopefully quite a few of you will turn up and support the GTR/Skyline entries, you will also get a chance to see what the Sprints are all about and hopefully encourage you to enter and have a go at the June 1st round at Blyton. I look forward to seeing several of you at Castle Combe on the 29th. :thumbsup:
Barry, you cannot access the link unless you are a member of the MLR.
I've just spoken to Darin to clarify this as the MLR regs say 1.75kg and when I searched I couldn't find a 1.75kg extinguisher! The usual car size is 1 kg dry powder or 1.75lt aqueous foam. He is now quite happy with either of these, the cheapest is the 1kg powder which can be bought for about £20 on ebay. It should be mounted within reach of the driver.A link to whichever Fire Extinguisher meets the requirements would be handy too.
Does it need fixing within reach of the driver?
I'm guessing yes.
I love your technical posts Adhesion vs deceleration....?http://www.velcro.co.uk/business/Products/~/media/Files/TargetPDFs/hook-loop-UK-web.ashx
Looks like 115N/cm^2 shear for the best mushroom stuff, about 10cm^2 in the photo, gross weight about 3kg? Then there is the glue on the velcro to the surface it is stuck to and the small screws would also worry me. A 20g crash is eminently survivable, but if you are hit in the head by 3kg extinguisher that comes loose it could ruin your day?
Can't you find a seat bracket and use a decent gauge metal mount located by some beefy bolts?
