The Birkett is an end of season bash, where just about anything goes. teams of 4 -6 cars compete on a handicap basis to post the most laps.
We entered this year as team pistonheads.com
Gineta G20 R
Things didnt quite go to plan, and it deserves a proper write up but for now
The Westfield ran fine ( did about 3 1/2 hours) until a loose earch strap started to cause problems.
The MG blew its gearbox after 20 mins
The Ginetta siezed a wheel Bearing and had to drag a wheel for a full lap. we got him running again after about an hour.
Me, well we confirmed that the engine wasnt in the best of health at Oulton as i managed 2 laps before it expired in a cloud of smoke…
4 months planning and i got a total running time of about 180 seconds…
ho hum thats racing.
