Notice. New forum software under development. It's going to miss a few functions and look a bit ugly for a while, but I'm working on it full time now as the old forum was too unstable. Couple days, all good. If you notice any issues, please contact me.

I attended the Noosa Hillclimb over the weekend. Here are a few of my videos:

Hillclimbs are super competitive and I'm not competitive at that level yet. I am a little under powered, my handling still isn't quite right and my brakes are unbalanced. I am consistently placing mid field. I am happy but not satisfied. I know I can do better by tweaking my suspension and increasing my brakes. Then I can go into corners with more confidence and I am sure I will pick up a few seconds. Edit: Plus to be outright competitive requires investment in Avon hill climb tyres. I am not serious enough to justify that jump in budget.

My last event was a club level bitumen khanacross. It was wet which amplifies the weaknesses I mentioned. The All wheel drive cars had the advantage. But despite a couple of major penalties resulting from my struggles in the weather I still managed 7th outright (also 1st in class but that is a hollow victory as I was the only one in my class). If it had been dry it would have suited me much more.

My next outing is a static EV display on Aug 10 at the Ipswich Rail Museum.

My next competitive event is another club level bitumen khanacross on Aug 17. I am hoping to have the brake situation solved by then so I have high hopes for a solid result.

Here are a couple of pics from Noosa early June.
