No copa golf this year.

Well we were asked by one of the MRDC to look after there golf this year, but due to lack of entries he went and brought an Hyundai Accent copa car, and the first time he drove it (first time on slicks also) 

So on the weekend of the 25/26th of march we headed up to Guadix for the first race of the season.  We tested hard on the 25th so he could learn what the car would do, and also to understand the difference in handling a car running slicks is compared to the normal track day semi slicks he was used to. He managed a 2nd place in the first race, we only managed 5th in the second race due to contact made.  The car behaved faultless but there is a list of jobs needed as is always with a new car.
