    So.... aside from some post-race pram emptying, Vitus worked extremely well as a WST venue, and the Thursday 'choose any 2 from a group' gave us some varied and interesting racing, so it's something that we will do again in these events... It did, however, throw up a couple of items for consideration that we've addressed in this event, as you will see further down this intro.

    We go from Fantasy Swiss-land to real-world Cheshire, UK and Oulton Park...specifically the Fosters Chicaned Circuit. This layout will be at least partially familiar to all of us, except that, after the familiar right hander and downhill esses, it sends us straight on at the end of the Cascades (instead of left towards Island & Shell), into a tight right hander, that brings us onto what is normally the end of the back straight, and into the chicane at Hizzy's, before turning back up the hill at Knickerbrook and onto more recognisable territory.

    As we're all relatively familiar with this venue, it seems like a logical place to try out the things that we mentioned above, so we have 3 single make events this week, with 3 new/tweaked vehicles. Tuesday will be the new Austin Healey Sprite Climax, Thursday will be the new (and previously mentioned) Grantura '60, and Sunday will be the newly lightened Porsche 912. All of the cars have multiple "default" skins, so there will be more than enough variety about without drivers taking another driver's personal skin for the races.

    Due to the nature of the shorter courses in the WST, we will stay with the limited lap quali to make sure people get a decent crack at a clean and relatively car-free quali lap.

    UK clocks move forward one hour, so P1 will start at 19.00 local time in UK. Just to clarify, 19.00 British Summer Time is the same as 18.00 GMT.... I think. :redface:

    Had a good drive round last night with Allan, Hans, and Denis
    Should make for some fun racing, the engine is bullet proof, no worries there. Remember the Porsche has 5 gears,
    im using the lowest final drive and get into 5th a couple of time. hardly touched 2nd gear. the chicane can be done in 3rd.
