Swapping the Camera for the Steering Wheel - Season 3 (pt 1)
A look back at my 2017 season, I wrote a lot of this as I went along rather than trying to remember it all at the end of the season, so it's a bit long winded and I thought it best to split it, so part one deal with the Autograss end of things

Swapping the Camera for the Steering Wheel - Season 2
After and enjoyable first season in Autograss in 2015, 2016 was my first full year in Autograss, a full year and a full season may sound like the same thing, but the difference is what happens away from the track. The car went to Gary Grattan to get a bit of work done to it, new arms were fabricated for it, paint touched up, another set of alloys arrived and were painted up and there was a painstaking weekend of peeling off the old vinyl graphics before it went to LJN for some fresh new ones. All in there was a lot of hours put into the car before it had even turned a wheel in anger in 2016, this was my first pre-season prep, without the constant need to be working at stockcar stuff on the computer and will plenty of time to do the work on the buggy it’s probably fair to say I was enjoying it and quite proud of how the car turned out.

Swapping The Camera For the Steering Wheel - pt 2
Earlier in the year I posted a blog on how Id wound up in autograss and how it was panning out up to that stage, which at that point it had been a bumpy start with car issues but we were starting to make some headway, although being competitive still looked a long way off.

Swapping the Camera for the Steering Wheel
Despite the fact Ive been going to just about every and any form of Motorsport since I was no age at all, up until the middle of last year Id never been to an Autograss event. Regarded by many as motorsports best kept secret when I look back it was something that Id only heard about when the results appeared in the paper or when it was the bigger meetings it always seemed to clash with something else.
Id seen the demos at the NEC and at the big motorsport event up at Eglinton a few years back and always came away with the intentions to go to a meeting.

My First Trip to Autograss
Ive been going to Motorsport as long as I can remember, I grew up around F2s, went with my uncle to all manor of Motorsport when I was growing up, Race meetings, Sprints, Hillclimbs, Rallycross, Rallying, Bikes, Karts, Trials anything with and engine that moved and we went to it. Somehow Autograss was something we never seemed to end up at. I think we went off in search of Autograss a few times, but with vague directions and in poor weather we never found an event and assumed it had been cancelled.

While on my travels in England last week, I managed to call in to the Donington Park Grand Prix Collection.
Situated on the site of Donington Park the collection hosts a number of past Formula one cars and a few other bits and pieces from motorsports past, as well as a war collection.
If your in the area it is well worth calling in and seeing.
