Brands Hatch Track Day

Chas Helm enjoys his winning ticket

Posted on:21/02/2010

On Friday 19th February Simon Seath took his old racing XJ-S to Brands Hatch for the JEC pre-season Track Day. With Simon for the day was local member Chas Helm who enjoyed several passenger rides in Simon's car and one of the racing saloons. The day started off with sleet showers and a wet track. The track has been resurfaced in places and some of these areas were very slipery while wet which meant that the morning sessions were not too fast. In the afternoon the track dried out and Chas could get a feel for what the cars feel like at racing speeds. Simon was able to identify any work needing doing before the season ( only brake discs ) and also run in the new set of Toyo R1R tyres that will be used as this year's control tyres. A good, but rathert cold day, was had by all and we now look forward to the start of the season in April at Snetterton with a return to Brands Hatch on May 8th.
