Further adventures of car 48 : Cadwell Park, 25-28 April 2024.

Arrived at around 11pm on the Thursday after an uneventful 5 hour journey.

Weather was COLD, reaching below zero on the Thursday night. 

Friday was testing. George commented 'the steering feels funny'.

Oh..

Modifications made to the steering linkages and toe re-set.

Saturday : Qualifying.

Weather was pissy and windy. Not amazing. A couple of earlier Saxo and Superkart races red flagged. 

This dolly shat its prop in the middle of Hall Bends leading to a spin.

Great to watch the 60's car qualifying.

Driver changes. While there was no need, we practiced a "Snet" 24 hour fast driver change. May as well use the experience.

George managed to qualify 9th with a decent 2:08 lap time, but smashed it out of the park with a 5th place finish on the Sunday. He's got the potential to be a very quick driver.

Next up, Croft.
