That's not just cold tyres, you turned in way too early from the middle of the track!

Yes way off line from the overtake on previous corner. You just don't get the luxury of an atom when its cold. But then again i was out to explore its cold limits. Think i found them!

Ah, need to sort my fire extinguisher.
What was the recommended/acceptable one again?

EDIT:

OK, found this a few pages back and have ordered a 1kg Dry Power.

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.

The method for mounting I used when I took part in the MLR 30-130 was to make a plate up which was secured with heavy duty velcrose in place of the cover in the passenger footwell.
Are you 100% sure on this Barry?

It'll be interesting to see how many runs we each get, considering the numbers.
So long as nobody drops their guts on the track or ends up in the field then it's pretty slick normally. The MLR runs it very well :thumbsup:
