We`ve made it! Stage 2 Complete
Let me start off with a huge thank you to @Lohen They looked after us from start to finish and for this im very grateful. As always Frank was a pain in the ass. For those who dont know who frank is, Frank is my MINI. A full vehicle check was had which happens all the time before a map is applied to ensure the engine is up to the additional performance, this includes compression checks...
So whats peoples thoughts on the Paddy Hopkirk Edition F56 ? I quite like it. Guy is a ledgend so its good to see MINI leaning on those who made Mini a great name back in the day. Reminds me of the Monte Carlo edition R53 that only ever came out in the states for some reason. Errr hello British brand ??? lol

Felt like i needed some MINI fun so found the F56 Challenge race car via Race Department, got it loaded into the PC version of Assetto Corsa and hey presto, some good clean close racing fun.
The video i recorded into three versions, then edited them together to give you different aspects of the race. Race seat, bonnet and TV cameras
Hope you like the YouTube video, keeps me sain. Subscribe and "Like" the video please, and i may make some more. Got a track you'd like to see me race at? Comment below
We're proposing to do a run up to Hartside on 29-03-20.
I've put together a route that will take us up the A69 to Haydon Bridge then on to Hartisde via the A686. For the route home I'm proposing a bit of a different twist and we take a more scenic and slightly longer route via High Force Waterfalls.
As for those wanting food I'm lead to believe that there is sometimes a burger van on the site of the old Cafe. Failing that there are plenty of snacks available in the petrol station at Alston.
The route map can be found here: https://goo.gl/maps/H1Ua5CuRch4FGVBm8
Start Point: MetroCentre McDonalds - Meet at 9am to head off at 9:30am
Approx distance: 115 miles
Approx journey time: 4 hours (with stops)
Final end destination: Krispy Creme MetroCentre (Open to change, people can peel off during the run home)
As always, feedback is welcome be it positive or negative
