I was also 4.5 secs a lap faster round Oulton this year grin

Civic



Team Wallasey consisting of no less than 8 WMC Members!



Neil Philpotts Starion that set Pole by 3 seconds omg
(Retired in the race due to Diff failure)

Later in the day the sun was blinding as you dropped down the Avenue in to Cascades - I missed the apex consistently due to being dazzled frown

Tinted Visors are usually a must, if not because they just look cool laugh

I wouldnt get a coloured one though, stick with black. Multi colour ones tend to have a poor finish, nd get damaged very easily happy

I should have realised that after Silverstone....

Thing is, in a tin top, the visor is up and the roof and sun strip generally keep the sun off you but as I found at Silverstone (late in the year) and Oulton (Early in the year) - if your race is late in the day the sun is low enough to dazzle frown

A couple of the guys I race with have tinted visors and although they donw lower them all the way, they use them like a peaked cap and look under the visor whilst that takes tha glare from the sun.

Oulton is one of the most technical circuits in the UK. Many drivers favourite because it requires thought and skill to go quickly round there and to pull off darig overtaking manouveres. Also, it looks nice laugh
