John, do you have to do much prep to the car to do those events?


Hi Mick,

In terms of actual modifications, then no, the car is pretty much standard, however I have Tech9 Motorsport,Hale, "Set up" the car which is crucial, if you are to be competitive.

I will also run upgraded brake pads and some "very sticky" rubber, since with sprinting, you need grip almost immediately and there is no time to get much heat into anything, unlike a trackday, where you can put in loads of laps.

Other than normal safety kit, ie. Cage, harnesses, extinguisher, the car is stock but can still hold its own against alot more powerful, modern machinery.

Most important thing for me is to use the car as it was intended,keep it in one piece and have lots of fun Smile

Cheers



John
