Re: MY2020 Recall. Failed Static Noise.

My R measured 98dB at Castle Combe at 4,000 RPM, in dynamic mode so valves open.

Re: MOVIES : dash- & action- cam... ..post them !

Re: JEC Track Day - Castle Combe - 15th October 2019

There's a good video on you tube on how to drive it, worth watching as it looks like there's some off camber stuff that could catch you out.
