Quite like your graphics, pretty eye catching :)
you have a beam braker on, was that a sprint?

That looked a suitably compact fast track to suit the Puma well and your Puma sounded nice and throaty.

Just had a look at the vid - looks like a go kart track - great fun! :cool:/>

Just wondered why you are running in MSA modified class - I guess its because you have removed your headlining / door cards and rear seats ?

I run mine in A3 which is "standard production car class" (yeah right... ;)/> ) - its built to the regs and is somewhat competitive ;)

Had a bad year this year, bad car crash in my works van back in February which put me in hospital. After 3 months off I started getting the puma ready for racing, tweeking the brakes and suspension. First meeting went ok, wasnt happy with the front or rear dampers. Second meeting I qualified a couple of tenths behind a scooby running on slicks. First lap a westfield lost it in front of me and having no where to go I ploughed straight into him. Seconds later a mazda ran into the back of me... a VERY low point but at least I didnt do any damage to my collar bone which got mangled in my earlier crash. Now after lots of money and LOTS of time she's all fixed for next year.

Tuned as well? How do rate the ST 170 conversion? Few people who have tried had struggled.

That is really good to see your Puma is still going strong and stronger.
Looks mighty fast on the video.
Have a great new year and 2019 season.
