    Registered, room, & trailer. I'm really looking forward to it!
    I'm still trying to resolve some last minute tweaks for the track though.

    6 point harnesses - Done.
    2 degrees front camber - Done.

    I'm trying to fit a set of Brooklands screens on my SV but Caterham doesn't supply the scuttles to mount the Brooklands on SV's, they only supply them for the narrower S3's so I purchased a narrower one and will try to have a section welded in to make it fit. Then mirrors...

    I picked up another set of VTO wheels to mount identically sized 205/50 15 Hoosier A7's as the Direzza's that were on for the street, but although the Hoosiers are the same "size", they apparently aren't the same "dimension". The inside of the tires hit the front fender stays. I need about another 3/8" of clearance. I may try to modify the stays, or go fenderless on the front. We'll see

    Nothing is easy, but we'll be there!

    John for 3/8" s wheel spacers is an option. Not a perfect solution but it should work.

    Thanks Graham, I think I'll try putting a spacer in the bottom mount but I'll also have to make the hole the ball joint bolts though in the fender bracket into an open slot as there's not 3/8" room left there and that's closer to where the tire hits the bracket. It looks like that might be ok as that's how the CSR brackets are anyways although they may have another mounting point as well, I'm not sure. Worst case I can just just weld it back up.

    Fred here. Thanks for asking Graham. She's all better now. Can't make the party this year due to a conflict. Have fun.

    I'll be the oddball

    Not registered, hotel not booked, tow vehicle pending, car still in progress.

    New seatbelts came in this week with the extra 2 points, will take time to install.
    Arm restraints have arrived as well.
    Fuel sender gasket is still in the transport webbing somewhere.
    Alignment is pending weather clearing up (should I go neg 2 degree like John B or just standard OEM specs?)
    etc etc.

    No not really. I am used to those having a panic realization on the first day that they have out of date belts, out of date helmet, worn bearings, etc and failed tech. Phone calls at 2pm the day before asking me to find a hotel room - oh and it has to be cheap. Trust me, after so many years doing this I have seen it all with ill prepared participants.

    You have a whole month to procrastinate yet. Plenty of opportunity to improve!!!!

    More like 21 days Croc, assuming it takes a travel day to get there. I am going to need all 21. My car, having just gotten a rebuilt engine, new clutch, flywheel etc., has sprung a transmission leak and likely rear diff leak. Hopefully parts will be available and are not on "back order". It could have been worse, the original diagnosis was a rear main seal problem.

    I’m set for accommodations (staying at the track again), but that’s about it.

    Plan is to take care of mechanicals this week. Try the new cooling arrangement again, new brake fluid, check brake pads (have an extra set front and back), figure out why Mike’s Brooklands don’t fit, install new 6 point harness. Easy, right?

    The following week is for polishing.
