It’s so hot. Like, ridiculously hot. Ice cream melts instantly. Tyres are getting up to race temps just cruising to work. Air con is not yet installed.
Outside DW – A chilled weekend at Driftworks, before BDC Round 2 at Silverstone. Phil and Al’s cars sit outside cooking slowly in the sun. Oh for a convertible.
Downstairs, Dan Chapman was up to collect some more tyres whilst Bon makes some more adjustments to the R32’s exhaust manifold. You’ll be pleased to know the car is up and running again after smashing a drive shaft at Japfest last weekend. That will teach Bon for clutch kicking in 4th with 15PSI with 285 section cut slicks.
It’s not all fun and games though – here is our fun game place. We’re currently re-living the awesomeness that is Live for Speed, with drift angle mods and fully networked for twinning practice.
Meet the newest member of the DW Garage – Bought for Birmingham Universities Motorsport Engineering course. They are going to be building a fully prepared, fully Driftworks suspensioned sideways machine which we will bring in much closer detail soon. Not bad for a uni-project eh? 🙂
