Cadwell is an absolutely awesome track - particularly in something nimble like the Lotus… definitely do it one day Andy!

Although… Kyle and I have both had failures there… but yeah, maybe don’t focus on that ;)

In other news, the day turned better when I got home and fitted the new wing ends I’d designed and had cut from carbon fibre for me! They look really smart!

Better pictures to follow, but this gives you the idea…

Just to add, back in my racing days (30 years ago mind), I had complete clutch failure at Cadwell on my Sunbeam.. so there might be a trend...... :lol:

Did you have to get recovered home, or was it functional enough to drive on the road?

I remember once escorting an S1 Exige home from Blyton after his clutch died. He was stuck in third gear, so we had this great system setup where I would pull out into a road to block incoming traffic like a lollypop lady so he could keep going without downshifting :lol:

I made it home under my own steam, thank heavens - as long as I'm not revving the car, it seems to work 'fine' - a bit tight to engage at some times, but all okay... I'm sure Track-Group will get it all sorted out for me, I'm just hoping it's nothing too major. It's *all* gears that are affected, which makes me think it's clutch, rather than gearbox, but who knows...
