Quite pleased with the dry weight, considering I've added the larger intercooler and turbo, paddle shift, plus all the electronics. It's around 20kg less than last year. The removal of the diolin side impact protection boards accounts for 16kg reduction alone.

Ignore corner weights, my floor isn't level.

12th place in my first BSC runoff this year, and 11th overall.

New PB 14s quicker than last year. Very pleased.
I reached 139mph and my best start was 2.14s.

Just needs a big chunk of aero now so i can stay on the gas around the corners.

At Croft I struggled to get comfortable in the car as the steering wheel had moved 22mm towards me after the fitment of the paddles/spacer. So I've today shortened the column by 22mm, and its having a replacement slug welded in the end, to hopefully return the steering wheel back to its original position as that will allow me to move my elbows again, which were locked in the chassis tubes and pressed against the body work on Monday. Most uncomfortable.

Steering column is back from Altiss Engineering who again did a really great job of the welding. Now the column places the wheel an inch further away i should be able to turn the wheel without jamming my elbows in to the bodywork. I'm still showing the bruises from Croft.
