On the way to Prescott

Bugatti Engine

Very excited as Rob and I set off to drive to a hotel close to Prescott to stay over night and get to scrutineering bright and early. Unfortunately the car started misfiring fairly early into the journey and producing occasional puffs of smoke. By the time we approached the hotel it was running on 3 more often than 4 and I was really worried (and a little bit snappy, if I’m honest!) We called out the AA who sent a very nice man who reset the timing (which had been wound right forward on a rolling road in the quest for top end power) and got it back on 4. Satisfied, Rob and I had a couple of beers. Really excited – used to read about Prescott events in Motorsport as a child!

About Shoestring

I just an ordinary guy with a busy job trying to compete in motorsport. I like to make things difficult for myself by living far away from most of the venues, using a car known to have "issues" and living in the cobble-streeted heart of a Cathedral city and therefore having no room to store a trailer or a van. This means that I have to drive to every event. Or get creative with hire vans...
