Harewood Report 8th June
Posted 09 June 2003 - 07:30 AM
The sun came out during the lunch hour and stayed until after the first timed run (69.49 - New PB ) however the sky began to darken around 2.30 and then we had an almighty thunder and lightning display that lasted nearly 30 minutes, I sought refuge in my car, I've never been stationary in such heavy rain before, all I can say is that i'm glad I keep my VX garaged as there was some ingress (my car has already had new roof/door seals).
After the rain had died off to a spit we were offered our remaining runs, people who didn't want to take the risk or knew there was no chance of improving on their dry time went home early, I on the other hand was looking forward to trying the VX in the rain, the last two runs were completed in pretty quick succession. 2nd timed run - sodden track with a lot of standing water and some tail out antics from yours truly (79.59) 3rd run 50 mins later after hardly any xtra rain and a brisk wind drying the hill gave a 74.42. Felt lots of confidence in the wet, you don't lose any of the VX's quick wittedness at the helm and the supple setup still transmits the same adhesion messages from the rear.
All in all a very enjoyable day and I managed to finish 2nd in my class (of 5 entries) I beat a VVC Caterham, an R300 Caterham and a "Carcraft Cyclone"
I'm off to Anglesey next Sunday (15th June) for a Sprint there - I'll let you know how it goes.
