Greyhound: advice for track day?
« on: May 31, 2020, 08:57:55 »
I'm taking my car for a friendly track day at Brands Hatch.
Any advice on things to tweak or to watch out for?
E.g. Kenlowe fan setting, leaving the bonnet slightly open so that the heat doesn't accumulate on the clutch and brake reservoirs. I have a Triumph engine...so I'm not too precious about how I treat it. Many thx!

That will be great Reg
I always think the 24 front and 26 rear tyre pressures are too low for road use and definitely too low for the track so you might be able to experiment a bit
I find 28/30 OK for the road and I'll be interested to hear how you get on
Have a good day
John

Ah...it was raining - not pouring but a light greasy, slippery rain. They cancelled the noise tests so I was too tempted to play it safe with my noisy GT3 RS....(Gen 1 manual, analog though). Next time when it's dry it will be the AC's turn.

Hi Reg (is it?)

Just out of curiosity what Triumph engine are using as I am using a Triumph 6 engine as well, be interested in your setup ie carbs etc, is it tuned.

I see you went to Brands are you in that area.

Nothing is impossible, but sometimes it takes a different approach. Now anyone got a big hammer?

Hi - I have twin SU's - std setup / no special tuning - but plenty of fun as it is.
