I have registered for MK on 24th
Ooo I'll actually be free that day since the farm was cancelled.

Do I need both the membership and CAMs license for this?

CAMS can be bought on the day for a single day license. Not sure re membership, just email the treasurer on page 2 of the entry form.

MK is great fun on the dry skid pan.

Hmmm if I go I'd probably get an L2S license so I could compete in the supersprint rounds. Wouldn't be able to do the one on the 25th though as I have a wedding that day

I thought that the MK event was held on a wet skidpan? I did my first MK using one of the new 8AT 128i's at a BMW driver training day a few weeks ago. It was awesome but I'm not sure how my car would go or rather how I would go using a manual car haha

MK may be wet, the ones I have done before were dry though. Manual is easier... 1st and 2nd

Generally the motorkhana is a wet skid pan, however there have been a few courses over the years that were dry in the mornings.

Ill be at both.

Hi guys, spoke to Batesy tonight he will try and lock Mark W down on Wednesday, numbers aren't the issue, they are allowing us to use their home and personal playground and we are really lucky to be able to

Will drop all players an email asap with the date, Mark did apologise for changing it.

There are two spots free as Tim pulled out, but if he has his new car I expect he will be back in in a flash.

So I went down to Wakefield yesterday with a few other guys. It ended up being a pretty awesome day. Very very windy though, and the temperatures were relatively cool. There were probably only like 8 cars in total which meant there were no groups or sessions. We went out whenever we wanted, for as long as we wanted and came back on whenever we wanted. It was great.

For some reason my car wanted to spin and spin it did haha. First session out spun very suddenly coming out of turn 8 and went backwards into ditch/puddle. Got bogged and the resulted in the attached photos . Had to get towed out. Unfortunately I forgot to attach my tow point so he ended up pulling me out via my strut tower brace. Luckily nothing was damaged.

Next time out I ended up spinning immediately going through turn 2 on the first lap haha. I think it was all of the mud and shit that was still all over my tyres. But yeah, over the course of the day ended up fish tailing wildly through turn 8 a couple more times. Saved one and spun another time. Odd since I've been out to Wakefield a couple times before and it's always felt a bit more progressive when breaking traction. Maybe I was just a bit over zealous.

All up, had a great time and managed a best lap time of 1.12 on stock suspension, up from my previous time of 1.17.

Depends what brand and where you are located.

Most brands have one dealer in each state that is allowed to sell Motorsport tyres and all the other tyre stores have to buy off them.

In NSW
Gary’s Motorsport Tyres in Arndell Park sell Dunlop and Hankook
Gordon Leven Tyres in Emu Plains sell yokohama

Since your post it got me into action and i did some digging for my own R spec tyres.
Just picked up some Hankook Z221 C30 Compound (Hard) in 225/45R17 for $250 each. Normal list price is $400.

I bought them from http://www.garysmotorsporttyres.com.au/specials
They just got a massive assorted shipment in from Hankook and have more than what the page says you just have to call up and ask.
