June Production Car Race - Renault Megane RS

Coverage from my random qualifying mistake and race 11 of the June WA Sporting Car Club race meeting. This was the first time we had production cars running for club points. We were mixed in with improved production and Street Cars, which made for a decent field. Despite my upset in quali I still managed a 67 second lap putting me right next to Jimmy in the other production carthe RS Focus.

Hyundai Excel Cup Car LCA Mount Welding

Welding out the LCA mounts is allowed in the rules due to it being a weak and common failure point on the Hyundai Excels.

Over time the seems and mounts pull apart especially if your heavy on the curbs (cough - turn 7 Wanneroo cough cough).

When these do pull apart or the mounts warp and you can end up chasing your tail with wheel alignments as the LCA can flex and move under load.
