It is a great track. I must come out one week. How often do you guys do this? Seems to be weekly for Doug :-)

 
The mid week practice days are only put on when they have enough volunteers to oversee the running of the sessions. Gotta keep an eye on the website for the next event. They aim for once a month. It was the first time for me at the track. Doug is a regular, scared off the lone kangaroo for the rest of us. Danny and Roger have been multiple times now. It was good to chase them and learn the track and build up confidence.
 
Fuel consumption on the day
7.54 L/100km to Morgan Park
21.12 L/100km on Track
7.29 L/100km to Home

Lumix your fire extinguisher install looks good. I like the double holding clips, and they should hold it in any accident.
 
Many fire extinguishers come with just one clip, and some of them are only plastic.
Here is a couple of pics of my own install. The seat can be moved forward OK.
I used 3 mm steel for the mount.

Extinguisher installs look good especially being bolt in with no drilling into the floor etc.
 
Someone should look to make a kit that includes the extinguisher and mount for those that cannot make it themselves?

Your car was a blast to drive at Morgan Park, Joel. Thanks for letting me have a drive!

There is. I bought and just received and fitted an extinguisher mount from MR2Heaven. In the order I included the fixing bolts and spacer for the MR2 seats
 
Only modification was to drill extra holes for my Quell fire extinguisher mount.

Cheers Redtarga. It does the job well for me. I have a few improvements in mind to strengthen the stand off pieces and tweak the stand off distance from the seat. I had to hunt around for the double strap as most automotive majors only have the single. Your install very tidy, single piece and tight to the seat removing any stresses.

Being easily reversible was important for me when installing it.

:D! Joys of going back to a stock NA with good tyres. I found my tyre wear was more even at Morgan Park than QR maybe due to more corner variation. How did you like the feeling through the wheel without power steering on the track?

That's a nice mount set up by MR2Heaven. I like that they provide spacers from the factory seat rails and the 5mm thick bar to provide extra rigidity. Very clean install!

Fitting two holding clips:
I first installed my unit with only the one clip that came with it. (see first pic)
But I later decided to add the extra holding clip as an added precaution because the 2 kg fire extinguisher would have quite a bit of inertia in an accident situation. (I certainly didn't want it bouncing around the cabin in a roll over)
In case anyone is wondering where I got the second mounting clip, I have several of those same extinguishers located at different points around my house, and I robbed the mount from one of those that didn't need it because it simply sits on a shelf.
