Put the boot in
I don't actually need race boots as they are only "recommended" for national events but I know the way this is all going, recommended now means mandatory FIA spec soon!
When I have all the other stuff anyway it seems a bit daft not to get them - three is a warning note from the MSA not to buy plastic type shoes ie trainers anyway.
The thing is, they seem to be about £140+ for a pair which is a bit of a shock but then I remembered something from one of the forums I frequent.
It had been said a company called Rally Design (who I bought the wheel studs from) aren't into this kind of stuff but had some odds and ends knocking around.
So, I checked out their website and they had only 2 pairs left which were both in my size. I snapped up ones like those in the pics but in red and with the FIA 2000 spec for £54 including VAT & posting.
What a result!
So, I am fully kitted out now and one less thing to worry about.
BTW - note to self, the group 4 disc assemblies are upstairs in the loft and the studs/wheel nuts are in the draw of the tall cabinet in the garage!
