    Hexus Rally Car...first outing....1 week :-)

    Here ya go guys.....my arse is now on the block

    http://www.scmc.co.uk/Mini%20Tempest...mpest_Home.htm

    There's no getting out of it now...entry in, and official acceptance. No idea where we are seeded yet....

    Now its on Ministry Of Defense land, so its not a public viewable event but the pictures are normally pretty good a week after. We have a full on rset of 1 in 3 ramps,that Tanks normally use for testing, and which we launch up and drop down....

    Its 100% hard concrete and tarmac, and no loose. Chicanes are normally made of huge oil barrels fullof concrete and 12 foot high hay bales, that dont move.

    There is "belgian pave" either side of several areas (thats concrete with rocks stuck out of them in varying heights..dont forget it was designed for TANKS) and its got a most excellent SNAKE SHAPED SECTION which in 3 dimensions goes down into a compressed positive camber and then over a blind crest on a negative camber....it fact....its a nice event Banked curcuit at one end (really banks.....45 degrees) which normally has a chichane at top and bottom of it, necessitating a trip to both armco's, and attemting to straight line the offending barrels, crates and pallets


    Yours truly is CO DRIVING...that means MAP READING guys...I'm the important one

    Dave Keen (owner of Aylesbury MOT) is my driver....he did 90 % of the build, with my wallet and (Davids/Hexus' assistsance....)

    Roll cage welded in by a chap called Donald Fowler, and most of the equipment was from Peter Lloyd rallying, in Wales.

    That web site has STAGE DIAGRAMS.....see what I've gotta contend with guys
