Car for the ARSE challenge - poll

Formula Abarth and BMW - we have experience with the cars having used them in a season.

Cobra - also have lots of experience with the car, and it's harder to drive, which may give us an edge.

The idea is that in the first Tuesday night after this season ends, we'll have a try out race in the chosen car, for all (or 24 of us) to participate in. Then the fastest 12 (most likely) will be put into the XGN team.

OK, I'm going to call it the Cobra. Does anybody have any track thoughts (from the AC tracks)? Monza 1966, or something harder? Silverstone maybe? Has a fairly nice flow to it.

One of the conditions for both teams is that they have to be tracks that come with AC.

I'm going to have to tell them our choice soon anyway :)

So far, I reckon it will be Cobras at Silverstone.

I think Spa is way more fun then Silverstone even in the Cobras.

A shame there has only been a hand-full of people that have voted.

That's democracy without compulsory voting for you.
I've been doing laps in the Cobra at Spa. It works well. I reckon that's the go. The WR is held by one Darren Marsh, and I'm 4 secs off that with a 2:47.350.

If you want a committed Cobra driver, I'm in.

Have you tried using an H shifter?
