    2015 Southern Rolling Road Day / Karting event

    I was in two minds about doing a Rolling Road day this year at 'Power Engineering' but after a few people enquired with me over the past week or so I thought I'd put something together.

    However......

    I have this morning spoken to 'Power Engineering' who would love to have the 'Volvo lot' back if only their landlord hadn't sold the site they were on, they are now on a much smaller site with no room for the dyno

    Therefore unfortunately I won't be able to organise anything this year, if anyone else knows of another venue please feel free to organise something.

    Re the Karting would people prefer to wait till the end of the Summer or if I organised it would people be up for another outing to 'Daytona' towards the end of April ?

    If enough interest is shown in an April event I will arrange a date and post up a dedicated thread in a week or so.

    It would have to be planned around robs engine replacement or unless he runs his 240, but there is scope and I'm guess more autumn time.

    I have organised several RR sessions at Marlin Motorsport in Bletchley MK in the past.

    A very hospitable business with a bang up to date 4wd MAHA installation that is used by MAHA themselves as their demo. facility here in the UK

    MAHA kit gives reference quality figures and are just about the most reliable and accurate dynos....alongside a couple of others, particularly the Kiwi DYNAPAK and Swedish Rototest hub dynos, they are not for dyno queens......

    Martin is the very affable and competent owner of the business.

    I would certainly be able to liaise with you in getting some of the more familiar faces there from t5d5, VOC and elsewhere.

    It's a good venue Marlin. In my limited experience of dyno's Maha's seem to be among the best and most accurate.

    Right, I have just spoken to Mike at 'Marlin Motorsport' and he would be happy to hold this years event for us.

    The date for the event will be either Sat Feb 21st or Sat April 18th

    Cost will be 40 per car and will include 2 power runs along with a printout and refreshments, they can cater for both 2wd and 4wd on their MAHA dyno.

    There is a limit of approx 20-22 cars.

    Can you please add your names to the list stating preferred date (or either) and also if you would be interested in Karting at 'Daytona' afterwards (approx 75-20 needed for sole use of track).

    I will go with the majority on date and decide toward the end of the week.

    1. V70 Graham either date plus karting
