Looking great a Keith. Good job. Hope to see you at an event soon.
My write up on FB
So to round 3 of the Japanese Sprint Series incorporating the Whiteline Subaru Sprint Series at Blyton Park on the 10th June.
We unfortunately missed round 2 so that’s our dropped round for the season but In the mean time we ironed out a few minor things on the car and Jase at Area 52 Autosport mapped the car with 5 different boost settings so we had 420bhp at the lowest and 547bhp max to play with.
Unfortunately the day didn’t start well on the first practice run I set off the trackside noise dB meter due to the fact that the cars external wastegate isn’t silenced so this was going to massively hinder the timed runs. To get under the noise limit I could not launch car, so it was 1st and 2nd gear off boost then plant throttle in 3rd once past the dB meter.
Ran all the timed runs at low boost and was off the pace of the leading cars which was to be expected with my start strategy
on the final run I clicked it up a couple of notches to see if I could get near second place in the class. Wasn’t to be but ended the day with 3rd in class and 5th overall so not a total disaster.
4 more rounds to go and we are still in there near the top of the championship.

Good news...is it too late for tomorrow?
It’s ready for the next round, how did you get on at Kendrew?
Class winner and equal 6th overall. Didn't like the "track" at all...very difficult to learn and sh*t for spectators. Will be entering Anglesey which is supposed to be a completely different kettle of fish.
Sounds like a great result, who was 2nd & 3rd in class, I haven’t seen any other results yet?
Glad you are doing Anglesey, I’ll be there too!
Excellent result Steve @Fatharrydog
Tom Thorpe in a Celica GT4 was second (he usually beats me and is leading the class overall so far) and Dean Simpson in a WRX STi hatch who is 3rd in class overall behind me. It was very close between all 3 of us with just 0.33s between us. Malcolm had problems with his spec C and was way off pace and had to retire early - going for a heads-off inspection at his garage. He is booked for Anglesey so fingers crossed. Missing the black speed machine!
