Give it a go at Tynagh Fi. It's plenty big enough track to learn the ropes as you won'd really get in peoples way no matter what you do as its not really a linkable track for the most part.

Straights are long too so can let people past. Can see how Watergrasshill can be pretty daunting to start out on as most people can link the whole track so you beginners can feel like they are in the way and the fact that you have a crowd looking down on you from the clubhouse and railing can feel like everybody is looking at you.


Just hop in and give it the shoe! ;)

Dunno if he will be driving at Tynagh.

Oh just don't have the confidence plus i would be shit scared of crashing the car! Maybe someday we will go up to Stones and get a day in there

I know if i can learn something in a relaxed setting and ill pick it up faster than if i was thrown in at the deep end, that will only end in tears Haha!

Jesus that sounds a serious beast... It's very easy to get carried away alright, I had a max budget of 3 grand, tat was blown out of the water in the 1st couple of months,..

But glad I took my time with it now and spend the money on the right parts, still a lot I wanna do with it in time but at the moment I'm happy with it, and wanna get as much seat time as I can, much point having a car with all the bells and whistles and not been able to drive it...:smile:

I'd love to have done tyangh but will be away at a rally in Clare tat weekend..

Hopefully 1 more day in mondello and Wgh be great too! Dunno about a 4:1 in Wgh thoug.... Is ther such a thing as a Meduim case 3:7 or 3:9 off the shelve or is it a case off sorting bit and building one?? Any pic of your evo wouldn't mind an ole nose:smile:
Great spec on this car now lad, fair play.

Is the roll cage CDS?
Thanks lad... Ya CDS tubing.... Looking forward to mondello now
