Probably way too late, but if anyone wants to go along to this, you can use my space for nowt.

They can't give me a credit, so I'd rather someone used it than it go to waste. PM me if you want it.

I took the convertible roof cleaner out the boot.

I also found out the roof of my shed is less than 100% waterproof, right above where my helmet has been stored! Currently drying off on the radiator! :lol:

Came over this morning to spectate.
Saw all you guys over by the lake and diner, looked an impressive turnout
Took some photos, took some video, had a warm in the diner with a bacon and egg cob and a cuppa
Good to see so many out on track, hope you all had fun

Will pluck up the courage to introduce myself and say hello next time 😆 👍

Great to see everyone today and finally Ranjan made it to a track day plus his car ran without trouble. After a cold damp start the track soon dried out and my car ran without any issues, just not as quick as thought it might be. Track etiquette left a lot to be desired with numerous drivers just baulking progress by not moving over. Overtaking at Gerrards though tended to dispose of them. John (Vj4sothername) had his track baptism driving and both enjoyed and scared himself as we all did on our first venture.
He came out with me and I demonstrated how to lose the back end coming out of Shaws (the hairpin) and then on a later lap locked the front wheels going into Shaws, cue rapidly approaching grass, lift off the brakes and the car immediately turned instantly and off we went, demo two done. Both totally unintentional and luckily turned out ok.
The rain held off until mid afternoon and after one session on the Federals I called it a day. Left them on for the drive home which was interesting on the motorway in heavy rain!
Next outing and the last for this year will be Brands Hatch in December.
After the drive across the Cotswolds on Friday the car was, is filthy with all the stone quarry truck crap.
Thanks everyone who attended and made the day enjoyable.

Thanks for a fantastic day everyone! It was a day that won't be forgotten. Thank you Ranjan for letting me loose behind the wheel. Thank you everyone who came out with me and took me out as a passenger. Your advice and guidance was hugely appreciated. Even if I was 100% as I was trying to compute everything at the same time. 5am starts with a restless sleep probably aren't the best idea for a first time track day.

Cannot wait to do it again! Besides the slip slide time with Chris. I can probably go without that. Thankfully I didn't make a mess of his seat.

Thanks for an enjoyable day guys.
Big Thanks to Ranjan for the tuition in his car which behaved impeccable
Considering the hassle he’s been through to get it to where it is now.

Hope you all had a safe journey home,I got home at18.30
