Just a couple of laps round Knockhill in the three wheeler on Saturday. The sound isn't great as come the time I couldn't find the adaptor for the external microphone and no, I don't think that shuffling the wheel is the way to do it on track (or at all!) but the M3W's ergonomics plus the amount of lock required does force it on me. smile
At least the weather was typically Scottish.

Looks like great fun. I asked my local track about me taking the Morgan out on it and they said I had to install a taller roll bar, and a roll bar over the windshield! No Thank YOU!!

Just noticed this, excellent Callum , I can see you getting faster and more confident as the vid goes on.
I get regularly slated on vids I have put on YouTube for hand shuffling on the wheel , non 3 wheeler drivers don’t get the ‘slow’ steering we live with.

There was a good deal of good natured hilarity on the day from those that followed me through the twisty section from the end of the start finish straight...something to do with the sheer work rate that they could see going on. The track day was very well behaved but could have done with some slower cars to play with, the standard of driving was generally quite high and I'd say that the most common cars were various Lotus Exige versions which it has to be said are a bit quicker on track than my wee car.

l always enjoy your videos and photos. Has anyone really souped up an M3W for racing, or could the tyres/chassis not take much more power?

Don't think the chassis has a problem with more power though the drivetrain might. Main mod for improved lap times seems to be 18" front wheels with modern bike tyres to give lots more grip. There's a few folk on the forum have been out in sprints, hill climbs and some racing too. The extent of the tuning has to be down to whatever the class rules are and in the UK the M3W lies somewhere in the no man's land between the MSA who administer car racing and the ACU who do the bikes. Which means that if it's a car due to the big engine it needs a cage, full harness, Nomex romper suits etc. While the following weekend it's a sidecar outfit due to the third wheel and you need leathers, no belts and a passenger. I'm sure there's a bit more detail to it than that but that's a taster of some of the issues.
