Its that time of the year again ... "The Wearside Classic Rally 2014" at the nissan test track in washington , tyne and wear Im feeling rather apprehensive and nervous tonight.... tomorrow is an important event in my motorsport calender with my Z3. Its a fantastic event that relies on accuracy, speed and having complete confidence in your navigator. A real buzz with 16 stages ranging from tight technical stages to fast, balls to the wall stages held in different locations within the massive nissan plant. Some stages are held on the social center car park with most of the others on the nissan test track. Ive spent the day preparing the car. Cleaned, levels checked, wheels loaded onto the passenger seat haha, spill kit and event steering wheel in the boot in readiness for tomorrows action. One mistake all day will severely hinder my chances of a decent result so the pressure is on. The event attracts some top drivers with some very sorted cars so last years 7th o/a and 3rd in class was a real result from 50 competitors. Time will tell whether we can do as well this year. nissan test track some videos of last year, tbh i didnt drive as well as i could, my tyres were just too hard and had no grip also had a hydraulic handbrake pipe burst two stages from the end and had no brakes .. had to pump them up and only the fronts were partially working by this time tomorrow ill either be in a "hero or zero" situation but as long as the car runs all day ill be a happy man.
