What's up 2020

So after sitting out 2019 whilst we rebuilt the engine we were gearing up for 2020.

The BRSCC let go of the Porsche championship at the last minute due to dwindling numbers which in part was due to increased costs for reduced track time. The championship has been divided for a while with more speed / cost going into Boxsters that really only a very few could afford and a growing separation with 924 drivers.   

So we signed up for the CALM Porsche trophy with a mix of Porsche models and race types run on a not-for-profit basis and raising funds for the Campaign Against Living Miserably a well established mental health charity.

A track day in March with the 750 Motor Club went well, despite a minor panic when the exhaust disconnected and I thought the new engine had failed (lots of vibration / won't rev feeling 😭).

Then the c-19 thing happened and Motorsport was cancelled until July. 

Most of the CALM Porsche season was in the early part of the year so has been lost. But the best is saved until last a shared grid with v8s on the under-card of the British GT/F3 weekend on the Brand's Hatch GP circuit.

Checking the car over the week before we found the battery leaking and steam coming from the centre radiator, so were hastily arranging delivery of replacement parts to ensure we could go racing.
