    There is just a standard one in there at the moment
    I used to run without, not sure it made any difference
    But I’ve never had overheating issues before

    Well. some of you may already know but, went for a play at Brands Hatch on Saturday.

    It was slippery as first thing in the morning, but dried up quite nicely, so got some good running in.

    Nealevo came along for the banter and was brave enough to get in the car too, if only to do his nails! lol

    Developed a small oil leak in the afternoon, which meant an early bath, but it was getting late anyway.

    Overall, a very good day out

    Hopefully I’ll get to catch up with you and Steve up at Brands this year. Every time Steve asks if I want to do a trackday something is broken on the 850!

    Would be good to have another 850 on track!
