I'd love to have a crack at this but I've never had my Evo on a track before and I'm far from the most competent driver in my near standard car, think I'd be stone dead last and out my depth lol

What kind of attitude is that to have, in any situation in life for that matter, grow a pair get out there and have some fun. From the minute you arrive directed to your parking slot the adrenaline starts...from signing on sticking your numbers on...last minute prep... tyres pressures the camaraderie the buz you'll love it, and where you finish wont matter at this stage.

How "secure" the secure extinguisher fixing has to be? I like CC circuit and I am tempted . Never done any Sprint series so would be a newbie unless I go for Javelin Croft before hand...

I would think so for the practice, depends on how much you are 'competing' (extra weight) Look at this footage:



IF they have a helmet and covered arms is usually 'track rules' remember to wear a long sleeve shirt and trousers

Secure it properly. Not hard to knock up a steel bracket and a couple of holes.
