    Cadwell Park - hotel rooms.

    Apologies for the double post, as far as I am aware the room is still available, however I need to point out that this is not a track day in the normally accepted sense. It will apparently be a tightly controlled Group Test Day to show off the GT40 Enthusiasts Club cars and as a photo...

    Giving GT40s a bad name?

    I think I have something factual and experienced first-hand to add to this thread. Please see the video in the link below. It is from a Spa track day in 2005. I arrive upon the driver in question at Rivage at the top of the circuit. He is going relatively slowly and is off line (easily done at...

    Fortyfication No 73

    Received mine Saturday, thanks for building the tension - must be the most anticipated issue yet. Gald it was a weekend as I immediately ran the DVD. The sound was fantastic. After a few seemingly cautious laps on he latter ones he was passing others like they were static! Great!! Thanks...

    Calling wanabees - Fortyfication No. 71

    In years passed the GTD Car Club magazine was the yardstick for excellence, but I believe Fortyfication is the 'new' king of the heap. Brett has surpassed even his own high standards with issue 71. Contributions are on the Le Mans Classic, Lola Cars visit, Le Mans 24 hours parade...

    Lola and car setup

    I went to the tour of the Lola works last week. Very interesting and not stupid. Something of particular interest was the 7 post setup rig. This holds the chassis down and exercises the wheels in any pattern you like to achieve the best possible suspension setup. They normally take it...

    F1 is boring me to death!!!!

    Mass dampers Pete, they will be using the system in Budapest and Pat Symonds thinks they know of another cause for the blistering. Maybe we can see a tight finish to the year after all. Apparently Charlie Whiting declared it illegal but his own stewards (?) appealed against his decision so...
