The first of a new series of group turbo training sessions has just been completed.

I occasionally use a turbo alone in my garage and I have to say I hate it – but this was different. Being in a group, being ‘gently’ coaxed along by Barry, and being able to fire questions at him while we trained all helped to turn it into an enjoyable 90 minutes.
Having tested the water we now know that there’s enough support to make this a regular weekly meet that will hopefull carry right through to the the start of the racing season and give us a flying start.
