    For anyone based in the West Country who fancies a looksee at grassroots motorsport, I'm gonna be doing a number of sprints and hillclimbs in the SouthWest over the year in my Zed 3M Coupe :coolsteer)

    1st sprint is at Clay Pigeon (Kart!) circuit on April 7th - 1.5 laps round the circuit (the 'wrong' way round!) and then Wiscombe hillclimb - just south of Honiton - on April 27/28th. Best I can hope for in my class is fastest 2 wheel drive, as I've never been able to get close to 500 bhp Evos and Scoobies.

    Moral support always welcome!!

    Hope to see someone around!! I'll post updates to calendar if anyone's interested!

    What race prep / modifications have you done so far to enable this?

    Very little!!

    The car's not an ideal 'hillclimber' as it competes with the aforesaid Evos and Scoobies.

    To date, the only mods are:

    Uprated Ferodo pads
    Uprated brake fluid
    Braided hoses
    Quaife LSD
    Hartge rising rate springs on rear only

    More to come as I discover what else 'works'. Doing too much at one time merely confuses where you're finding time. As in all forms of motorsport, the best mod is usually a better pilot!! :D
