Since we are now all living under a CV19 shaped cloud, there's not much to report, I haven't even tried the car on the new Michelins and its due a service and probably a bit of preventative maintenance (I think a refurb of a rear caliper is stil due).
Maybe we'll be able to get out on a track in August and September.
GP-2 made it to the annual Mini Club Flying Finns trackday and sauna/drinking night on 12th September; I haven't seen any photos from the track that I could upload, but hopefully something will emerge. Unfortunately, neither the GP1 nor GP3 made it for the photo-op, but not to worry. I even stuck the original rims on too, as the weather was already turning wet.
And tomorrow, it'll be back on winters as the snow has come. And it was 10c on Wednesday...!
The GP2 has managed a measly 1600km in the last twelve months, 250km of which was the trip to the track and sauna-night, despite not being off the road. I suppose this is what happens when you're working from home and have a family car as well.
you always find the weak point, but I am wondering WTF happened here. And I suppose if anyone else is running an R56 with the same intake, you might consider a pre-emptive replacement of the offending part. I'll try to get the part # in due course.
