Anyone fancy the left hand seat for the x-part ?

Hi - Does anyone fancy taking the left hand seat with me in my MGZR for the x-part next year?

I have a few people in the longer term (friends) who might help me out later in the year but I need really to start the first couple of endurance events with someone who knows what we should be doing to give us a fighting chance.

I'll just be driving to finish but there is nothing worse that not knowing the ropes as it were and people were so helpful on my first autosolo and targa I thought i'd ask again and see if anyone is up for the challenge?

Sounds like a good plan

I have NO experience of 12 cars but have done a Targa and a Autosolo so putting it all together we should be able to fumble our way round and everyone in the club are really good at helping it seems.

Great News

Thanks Justin, would be a good idea to get together in the early part of the newyear.

Did you have the ZR for the last Targa? as have a ZR160 which i competed in at Woodbridge, great little cars.

cheers

Thanks Louis for the vote of confidence, have been contemplating navigating for a while.

Hopefully John can educate me on his magic maps that find their own way and call the corners at the correct time.

All forms completed so we're

All forms completed so we're committed now Jon ! - No pressure Smile

and yes, I had the purple ZR at the targa and an autosolo last year - I was the one with a grin ear to ear all day.

It was PG05UFN but is now LIG 1734#

I'm working pretty much now until 1st Jan then 5 days off so maybe catch up in the new year as you suggest.
