Getting My Fiesta ST Ready for Wales!

So I’m off to north Wales next week with some friends, mainly as we’re booked on a Javelin track day on the 31st July, and also to sample the amazing roads in the area.

In order to ensure my ST it at it’s best the aim of the day was to change the following:
– Oil (Mobil Super 3000 5w40)
– Oil filter (MANN unit)
– Brake fluid (ATE TYP200)
– Coolant

I also cleaned my K&N 57i induction kit, drilled some cooling holes in my front bumper (#becauseracecar), fixed and painted by splitter (second time I’ve broken it) and  also took the opportunity to repaint my wheels. 

​We’re leaving Derby on the 30th July, heading the long way into Wales, stopping overnight before the trackday at Anglesey and then again stopping for a second night. To say I’m excited is an understatement! I’ve been to north Wales twice before and each time has been amazing, but I’ve never had the opportunity to drive on the Anglesey circuit. 

I’ll do a full write up of our adventures when we return. 

Fast Car Show

Yesterday I attended the Fast Car Festival at Donington Park. 

It was a great day made even better by the sunshine. 

I was lucky enough to be invited with a friend as part of the Supercar Drivers Club. 

The mix of cars was great to see! Where else do you get the oppurtunity to see the Astob Martin Vulcan, a McLaren P1 and other supercar exotica lined up on the same tarmac as fast fords, full track cars and many jap cars. 

The track sessions where great, getting to see both the P1 and Vulcan at full speed is something I’ll probably never see again! It also became a very social day for me, seeing many friends from different car clubs I haven’t been able to see for a while due to a busy home life. 

Overall it was a great day, and I’ll definitely be going again next year!
