Re: big breakfast Malton

Yes, turn up early to see some beautiful cars as Specialist Cars of Malton open their showroom, many of their customers attend and lots of other car enthusiasts. It's also a charity fundraiser, so get a butty and cuppa and donate to their nominated worthy causes.

Another vote for Pagid RS29, but I also use Ferrodo DS2500 on my turbo. Carbonne Lorraine bike pads are some of the best I've used and didn't know they did cars, so will follow that up.

And the MX5 is lauded as a latter day hero too.

Not changed our clutch and so far it's done several high speeds days on runways, about a dozen trackdays and lots of spirited road driving. No problems so far, but I think it might now be reaching the end of it's life.

I will probably go down the route of an M5 plate when it's time is up.
