Re: Memory lane.

The 1998 mono round was wet. (it was my 4th event ). I think this is more likely to be 1997. The blue car on the right is Pete Dittman and the race ended with Pete and Robin clashing on the last lap. I remember ducking behind the pit wall as an errant wheel bounced down the pit lane. The white car n...

Re: Electric hook up for Silverstone

Looking at Andrews plan they are mcb and not rcd so you should be ok. Don't try a single phase into a 4 pin plug as there is no neutral. It would put 415 volts down your cable!!!!!!! :shock:

Re: Electric hook up for Silverstone

Use the 5 pin plug.

Live/phase (brown) into L1
Neutral (blue) into N
Earth ( green/yellow) into E

You use only 3 of the available 5 connections. This will be fine unless it goes into a 3 phase R.C.D socket where it may trip out.

3 pin phase neutral and earth.

415v ac
Red 16amp or 32amp
4 pin 3 phase and earth
5 pin 3 phase neutral and earth

Re: Curbs

I know exactly what you mean Steve. I never used the curbs which may explain the lack of outright pace. I was always in the school of thought that the first priority is to finish, preferably in one piece. My first car the Lola T642 had some big rear uprights that were very low to the ground and that...
