Elvington Tomorrow - Tweaked Beetle Weather!

Looks like its going to be a wet Elvington tomoorow - all the times Ive been there I think its only rained once before and then that was only for a bit before it dried ourt again.Not sure whether the lack of top speed cornering is adequately compensated by the low speed handling dynamics that might enable you to play around with the car on the limit, albeit the limit is a lot lower…and theres also the reduced tyre wear to think of!

SteveRuss & I went to Elvington for the first time in February - intending to spectate. We arrived at about 11.30am, & the track was dry. Russ decided that he would venture on track after lunch. However, at about 1pm the heavens opened & it then rained for a couple of hours or more. I decided to join in the fun too [image]http://www.exiges.com/ubb/NonCGI/images/icons/grin.gif[/image]We had a tremendous time, also “enjoying” the wide expanse of tarmac, which was available outside the “circuit” marked by the cones. We both even managed 720 degree spins at the “chicane” after the start/finish line, as we hit 3" of standing water right on the racing line.As you say, you will be able to play around with the car’s dynamics, whilst not having to worry about hitting barriers or wearing out your tyres [image]http://www.exiges.com/ubb/NonCGI/images/icons/grin.gif[/image]IIRC I stayed out for about 1 hour, whilst the Russmeister managed a couple. Hope you have fun - I think that some of the NORLOG members are driving up to watch the action [image]http://www.exiges.com/ubb/NonCGI/images/icons/grin.gif[/image]

Well another great day…the forecast weather never really arrived until quite late in the afternoon and then it was not the downpour expected.The course alteration late in the afternoon made for a fantastic series of corners taken flat out in 2nd, 3rd and then 4th. The Exige really showed its handling pulling out big gaps on most other types.Good to see Brannan there with his TT.It was never really wet enough to goon about but Im not really complaining!
