Brighton Speed Trials
7 September 2019
The Brighton Speed Trials is commonly held to be the oldest running motor race in the UK: the first race was held in 1905. Traction of the line appeared to be the main issue with the FVL; however, the final run of the day recorded a 14.59 secon 1/4 mile with a final speed of 108.5 mph. This was never going to set the records alight, but it was useful testing for standing race starts.
Pembrey Race Circuit
5 October 2019
For the 2019 Reprise IT Tiedeman Trophy Championship, a cold but dry morning meant that it was possible to learn the track and improve times. However, the afternoon races were another matter. Torrential rain in race 1 actually worked to the advantage of having rain tires well past their prime, in inches of standing water the hard tires worked very well resulting in a hard fought 3rd place. But race 2 had only damp/slick conditions that resulted in unbelievable understeer. Nevertheless, another 3rd place resulted due to others attrition.
