Welcome to the forum Mike - car looks great. You guided me round Silverstone in 2007 (on a PCGB day) and succinctly appraised my driving skills :lol: - Did me a power of good!

 

 

Thanks very much Sladey .... and thank you for your kind words, see you again on track one day I hope.

 

Hi Mike, and welcome to Impact Bumpers or DDK (please delete as appropriate). I shall be at Oulton for the RS day on March 4th

 

 

Thanks Nick......see you at Oulton Park :D

 

Good to see you on here Mike!

 

Nice video of you driving my old Carrera around Silverstone in March 07:

 

 

:D

 

 

 

Thank you Tim, it's good to be on here ....that was a good day at Silverstone wasn't it....do you still have the car?

The CS is a lovely car and yours looks great. Brave man sticking your head above the parapet with your background and qualifications - prepare to be bombarded with questions (hopefully most of them sensible!). I hope to meet you on track in 2011 as I could certainly learn a lot

I seem to remember you as a very good F3 driver, when I was campaigning

an F4 car in the early 70's.

Do you still fly 'choppers?

 

 

Ah...F4 drove a Vixen - Imp in 1970, great fun!

 

Thanks for your kind words, I really enjoyed F3.

 

Yes, still teaching in helicopters...sadly not very often in this weather hehe!

 

No, had to let it go unfortunately :( will get another in the future though!

 

As for you not being brave, errrrm:

:D

 

 

Awh, that's a shame...I do hope you manage to get another one in the near future...you'll have to have a go in mine .. :D

 

Yikes! I remember that fire very well, a Lola T286 with a Cosworth V8 DFV in the back....bloody fuel tank split, nearly killed me!!!

Welcome Mike, by far the best drive of your life I've read :ani_clapping: and back in the day when it was really dangerous!

 

 

Haha...thanks mate.

 

Hindsight is a wonderful thing, yes they were dangerous cars .... but at the time they were the latest technology haha!

Welcome Mike. I'm a new CS owner, got mine in the summer last year. This year I plan to get some track tuition for my wife and I (we are novices) and use the CS how it's maker intended. From your picture your engine look's brand new!!

Sorry for the delay in replying, been on holiday!

 

Jaz have done a brilliant job on tidying up the engine bay for me.

 

The CS is a lovely car to drive on track, I'm sure your wife will enjoy the car.

 

Please let me know if I can help you both with some tuition, in the meantime I wish you both safe and enjoyable track days.

Wecome aboard Mike. Seen you around many times but never been introduced. Steve's done a lovely job on your engine. I refurbed and powder coated (which is what I do) your tinware. Even discounted it as I knew it was for you ;), cheers Graeme
