Season 36 – 1955 Grand Prix – Round 5 – Roy Hesketh

The fifth race in the 1955 Grand Prix series sees us taking another boat, this time back across the Atlantic Ocean to the Roy Hesketh circuit in South Africa. Located on the outskirts of Pietermaritzburg in KwaZulu-Natal, the circuit was named after a South African racing driver, the late Roy Hesketh who died in in an aircraft collision 1944. Doug Aldridge, Colin Dove, Ossie Fisher, George Finch and George Shrives got together as a Consortium from Pietermaritzburg in the early nineteen fifties to first build and then maintain and improve the circuit.

During its period of operation (1953-1981) the circuit hosted rounds of the South African National Drivers Championship, and national Formula Atlantic races. The South African National Drivers Championship was a Formula One motor racing championship which generally fielded cars recently retired from the world championship although there was also a healthy selection of locally built or modified machines, and from the late 60s Formula 5000 was added to grids with Formula Two cars joining in 1973.

The circuit also hosted the Easter races - a festival of motorcycle racing over three days. Mike Hailwood, Giacomo Agostini, Barry Sheene, Kork Ballington, Jim Redman, Paddy Driver, Mike Grant, Rod Gray and Syd Stacy were regular competitors at the circuit.

This one falls into the category of "Mickey Mouse" and is murder on the brakes.

The short lap length will make people being lapped an important issue for those who can make their brakes last long enough!

LOL!!  Sometimes I get a little scared, and almost paranoid, about the way Clive and I appear to analyse upcoming events/tracks in the same way!! I am beginning to wonder if there is a hidden camera somewhere around my rig??

This track was a new one for me too, and this afternoon I decided to explore the track for the first time as we have another 55 race coming up.

Initially, it looks like a simple track, quite easy to learn the 4.5 corners and which way the next bit turns. But with that brake fade in 55's this becomes a real problem to attack .
It is so easy to go deep into T1 and burn 100% of the brakes in a single hit, then they sort of recover to 50% before the downhill approach to T2 and T3. Again easy to blow all of the brakes on T2 and have nothing for T3 or anything worthwhile for that final double apex lol.
So for me, this race will be all about when and where I brake heavily, and where I try and preserve some of the retardation. The lap is so short that maintaining the brakes lap after lap will be a challenge, especially as Clive says, when lapping backmarkers, which will be happening before 50% distance I suspect.
This could be interesting lol.

"...use the force"?  ……….."use the force??" he says!!

Just what the heck do you think I have been doing???  I have been forcing the ruddy car to accelerate, forcing the bl**dy reluctant barge to slow down, forcing the flamin' thing to turn in and then forcing it to get the heck out of the corners. Any more force and the whole pit crew will have a terminal case of piles.
All of this force and the laptimes are still not going below 1min ** secs  Roll Eyes Grin Wink

@ Josefine....Welcome to Josefine. I hope you enjoy the fun and the racing with us.  Grin

@ Clive …..Dam!! forgot about infra red night vision!!

We want that SBRC aerodynamic appendage on the Gordini investigated by the stewards!! Our technicians suspect that it might be a cunningly disguised braking parachute, just very badly adjusted???  Undecided

Just in case this is a major advance in technology, the boffins fitted a similar device on my car in private testing and I was finally getting sub 1:10secs, but our aero package was a little larger. Mabel's underwear only comes in "XXXLarge" and we did experience some issues with the elastic getting tangled around the driver's neck. But it's OK, as we have a new box of plastic seat covers and several spare test drivers provided by Mrs Fujikawa.

I like the idea of disposable test drivers but the thought of fighting Mable's underwear at speed makes the blood run cold!  Arnold is a brave man!

As for sub 1:10 laps, chortle, chortle, chortle, chortle, chortle, chortle, chortle, chortle, chortle ......
