2hr open track evening at knockhill. Thought I would pop along give the car a few laps This is just to check everything is good after engine rebuild so will be taking it easy :D a shakedown before heading to oulton on the 24th of this month. I have a different brake set up and camber changes to do before I go to oulton.



Good thing about knockhill is if breaks I can walk home :lol: although my wife says if it breaks I have not come home :lol:

I will leave rear camber tip you return but I will get front set up and brakes done if I can get adaptors made...

Yeah good tester before Oulton this Friday.

Identified a couple of minor things to sort out before oulton.
