    Was a good day. Enjoyed the last 3 much more due to a few more "drifting" opertunities haha. After I hit the cone on my second run I decided to use the rest of the runs to practice using my handbrake to initiate it. I sucked at this haha, but no where better than car club to practice

    Yes the last 3 were much more fun. Ryans stock MX5 MK2 was not "as good" as my brothers stock MK1. Obviously both on ditch finders with no setup done to them but it felt bigger, less nimble and more of a handful. Just jumping in them and having a play I was pleased with how well I placed against the MX5 professionals we have in the club.

    I noticed the steering was noticeably less sharp on Fid's car than on mine. I put it down to low offset wheels but it might just be the way they are.

    There's probably some science behind it. Ryans was more fucked than Bens might be the closest possible explanation. Not sure if I was driving Bens Type S(?) Or his R Limited(?) or even if that's their names if that makes them better than Ryans. It was on bouncy suspension with rubbish tyres though, I know that much

    One cone cost me the win but was happy with the result. Dean drove very clean and smooth which paid off. I like this style of event how the times are added together to determine the winner. Mx5 drove well and look forward to 2016 season I think some super grippy tyres will purchased before if I can get another set of wheels in time.

    I would like to propose the ability to use tread ware tyres of up to 180 in the Kozycup. It opens up much more and better tyres.

    I can't afford to have 2 different sets of tyres but would like to use day an ad08 as then I might be good enough to do well in class 4, Kozy cup and track days.

    Seems like a fresh way to reward consistency.

    It also means that people generally are not punished owing to conditions changing. Although this is largely dealt with by the insistence of runs run in order during the day.
