    Hello Peter,

    We have one dedicated MGoT session of twenty minutes in each hour, with other clubs or individuals taking the other two sessions.
    Obviously this means that our session will comprise a mix of abilities and car performance but this has always worked out fine in the past....the legendary MGoT etiquette!
    Any other questions please ask.

    All the best,
    Duncan.

    Thanks Duncan.Im happy and confident in any trackday format. Mallory should suit my ZR well and with a power increase and Quaife diff fitted over winter Im looking forward to getting it out on track this season.
    As with Donington I will be the only ZR present. I really hope that someone else in a ZR turns up at later events Im in
    Here is a pic Danielle took of me trying really hard to fend of that VRS Skoda!! That green paint is slippery in the wet Screenshot_2019-10-31 MGS ON TRACK - DONINGTON, 7th October 2019.png

    A Skoda you say, who let them on the track... :rolleyes: It's my son's car, he and I were sharing the day as we usually do except the MGB was poorly. We're back at Bedford in it after an engine rebuild

    Donington - I seem to remember we had some funny that day with you :cool:

    Yes it was a good day. :)
    I was very short of revs at Donington as my VVC mechs decided not to play properly.
    That means the ECU limits the engine to 5800 to 6000 revs:(
    I will have a reshly rebuilt and modified engine for Mallory so I should be back to using all of the 7500 revs!
    I wont have a passenger either which will help the power to weight ratio:D

    Morning Peter
    Got back last night from another excellent visit to Bedford. It remained dry all day until the last session. We encountered what we think is fuel starvation so at times the car had 'stutter vision' in both corners left and right but also at times down the straights which was a shame as when it was performing it is whole different car to pre engine rebuild. We were advised to put a 4 pot brake system on at the front with vented discs and we plan to do that before Mallory so we don't have to brake quite so early as we did yesterday.

    Duncan [son] and I look forward to seeing you again and resume our friendly joust :cool:
    Best wishes
    Mark
