That's a shame Kev

Trackday is open pit lane from 10am till 5pm, signing on and briefing from 9am, I should be there around 8.30.
Be great to see you, any other Saabs booked on?

Wes

Sadly don't think any other saabs I know of.
Stu (Saabnscotland) is in Canada at moment, he may track his 9k if it's dry.

Otherwise, see who I can drum up for spectator support :roll:

I will be there on Friday with my aero on stilts, should be entertaining :lol: I have lightened the car a little :D but I have not had time to make coilovers so I am going with the jacked up look. Neither have I upgraded the brakes, but with less weight that might not be such an issue. New set of track tyres fitted so looking forward to see how the perform.
Looks like the weather gods are going to be kind forecast dry and cool.......

Who else is tracking their car?

Last minute checks reveal slight coolant leak not sure where from, but there are traces of power cool will keep an eye on level and leave cap slack so not pressurised. Oil leak fixed I hope, Fresh engine and gearbox oil. Brakes next, broke a bleed nipple so quick change of caliper and brakes bled.
However I did not realise brake pads were so worn, brake pedal won't be getting much use tomorrow :D

Anyone bringing a spare set of 9-5 brake pads lol

But been clearing out earlier this year, no promises...

I'll probably be along c 10am, catch up with people then.

So list (may) be:

Wess
Stu
Kev
George
Mike
Lugy
