My cinq also has a comical lean on hard corners!

They are great fun, even if they aren't particularly fast.

Re: Some Castle Combe Photos

I sorted all that on my last Cinq, with decent Bilstein springs and shocks. It was horrible to drive on the roads, though.

Don't want to do anything to this as it's an original condition Schumacher - really need to leave it as standard.

I was being overtaken on the straights (CC has 2 decently long straights), but could pull some distance in the chicanes and tighter bends - a Suzuki Swift Sport could barely catch me.

Fantastic fun at sensible speeds.

Re: Some Castle Combe Photos

If you plan on doing more trackdays maybe buy anouther set of wheels with propper tires. they will make it even faster round the bents.
And don't know how standard you want it to be, but some ebc pads or similair..

Re: Some Castle Combe Photos

Iím looking at tyre options for the Abarth rims. If 185/50r14 fit, they may be the answer.

However, brakes and tyres werenít the limiting factor on a fast track like Castle Combe.
