Castle Combe Whitsun bank holiday race

Up at 5am for an early start and early drama as the after run coolant pump on the S3 failed and spat coolant out on the way to meet Bill at the unit.

Joys of a 15yr old car with 130k miles on the clock lol… I replaced this once we got back from Combe so all good so on to the racing 🙂

Unfortunately Bill retired during free practice in the morning with a significant rattle from the gearbox area which is disappointing considering its just been rebuilt… when Bill removed the box the following day he found the flywheel had come loose and the clutch friction plate had separated from the rivets….

The joys of motorsport (cars in general it seems lol)

Anyway, I took a few pics all the same and here is a selection of the better ones…
