    Heck, can't believe it.

    Excellent idea mate, would sign up but I don't have FB and I'm happy this way, so keep us updated also over here!

    If you need a safe place for Giulia, I'm very determined.

    Nope, lately I didn't search for many events, already have a lot of pictures from older ones to go after and until today I was very busy with a project at uni.
    If I manage to find something I'll let you know.

    Beside, I'm not sure if I'll make it there to pick Giulia, my range is about 20 minutes of bicycle at the moment

    Det er der vi har vår debut i slutten av Juni
    Desværre ikke. At bo i Danmark og detltage i motorsport er desværre et lukket land. Havde jeg været i Danmark i Juni, var jeg taget til Padborg!

    So our first test have been done!
    On monday we went down to the nearest track to do a little shakedown before leaving for Denmark. It all started very well and my brother had 2 good stints with only minor problems. Setting a couple of good laps after only 5-6 rounds. Managed a 57,9 sec time on a track he had low 1.01 times with his seven. So there is alot of potential in the car for sure. When it was my time I was nervous like a little girl, but when I got out there it was pure joy! What a machine! What acceleration! I am sure it wanted to rip my head off! The steering is ultra fast and very precise. I thought it would be tailhappy, but it is rather the opposite. So it is very kind to it's driver.

    But the only after 6-7 laps the charge-light came up on the steering wheel and soon after I felt that the weee-taccc cut out, this was really noticeable. And soon after, the padleshift was struggling to downshift due to low pressure from the compressor driving it. So this ended the session, with the conclusion of a broken generator. Since it was not a normal Civic Type R generator, but a modified one, it's now a new one coming from UK in express freight. We are crossing our fingers triple in hope that it arrives tomorrow, if not the trip to Denmark is looking dark. There is a little video on our FB page for those who are there, I am not sure if my brother has put it on Youtube yet. But I will give you a link as soon as it is out there

    Henk, I think charged was refering your statement to LotusLocost there.

    Very cool to hear there Locost, hope the part turns up on time and you can get back in there!

    Fred is far too modest to post his own times.

    Sad news, the generator didn't arrive today, but hopefully tomorrow.
    The result is that we can't make the test-day down at Padborg Park on Wednesday, cause then we would have to install and test today, and start the trip down 4am Thursday morning. So we hope it turns up tomorrow, and that we manage to install and make it work properly. If it works all right, and there is no other trouble with the charging issues, we will head down on Thursday for test and quali on Saturday, and the one hour race on Sunday Crossing our fingers that the UPS guy don't wake up on the wrong foot tomorrow!!
