Stew, I see what you mean about some of the new kurbs being nasty. I clipped the one on the inside at Park a few times, thought I was gonna end up on 2 wheels, lol.

it does nothing to make a quicker or more enjoyable lap. park corner with the right kerb could be a belter.

charlies-1 is great for 2 wheels

Yeah, Park is nasty, had to check my tyres when I came off track I hit it that hard...


And I don't run the inside curb at Charlies 1, so it's not for me.

That's a good call. Unfortunately, it means spending money. And time editing it, lol.

That's a good point actually. Might have to look into getting a half decent camera at some point then, and use my current cam for the small picture.

Cool. I know it's probably a really intense thing to do but do you not like the longer runs more? Is it just like have a country lane blast... But on steroids lol?

Can't believe how quick you belt up that track! That other video was really good. Is it dear to get into?

Hillclimb's are hillclimb's, i take them as they come. I prefer hills as they demands precision driving, its not like a country lane blast at all.

Its a cheap motorsport to get into, the most expensive bit is buying a suit/helmet/gloves really. After that its £30-£40 for a MSA licence, join an approved car club and do a few minor safety mods to your car, make a timing strut for the fron of your car and your ready to compete.

Hmm, Sounds interesting. I'd like to do something competitive but couldn't afford to race in a full series or anything mega money.

Maybe it's something I could look at aiming for for next year. Get a licence sorted and see what I can have a go at. I have a few other quite expensive hobbies so I'd never have enough free cash to do a lot but i'd like to see if I could have a go at things and see if I was actually any good at any of the events lol.

You don't know until you try!

You'll need your interior fitted to run in the production classes but no cage/buckets/harnesses are required.
