Rolling Road Report
Back in early January, Neil Philpotts did a cracking job of organizing a rolling road day with a company that has recently opened on the Wallasey Dock Road.
Normally the guy in charge, Dan, like to cut his teeth mapping cars and bikes, but on this gloomy Sunday he was well prepared to load various cars on to his hub dyno and blast through some power runs for the day.
There was a great turnout, with 9 cars – road and race getting loaded on to the dyno. Top day out, with Dan giving some useful feedback on the cars performance, along with an email and print out of each cars performance for the respective owners. So a big thank you to Dan and Neil for sorting the day and the buffet lunch that was also laid on for club
