Merlot spotted at Silverstone!

Sunday 27 March and Project Merlot is spotted at Silverstone on the Grand Prix circuit along with over 100 other MX-5s belonging to MX-5 Owners Club members and Ma5da Racing teams.

The parade lap, organised by the MX-5 Owners Club and Ma5da Racing was the biggest yet and gave all those on track a taste of what its like to be an F1 driver (well, sort of).

Bedford Autodrome.

There is a first time for everything and on Monday 21 March Team Merlot finally made it to Bedford Autodrome. Robbie and Jon took to the track on the event organise by Mazda on Track.

By the end of the day fifth gear had disappear
ed (to return later, thankfully) along with plenty of rubber from what must be the longest lasting set of Toyo R888s anywhere, but so had the not so long lasting Red Stuff brake pads recently fitted to the Merlot.
