That's the second-worse reason to sell a car.
The worse being "my wife/gf says it has to go"
Either way, I pretty much guarantee you will regret selling

Brilliant Day, Brilliant Format. I really enjoyed myself.

B&B was not bad.. Breakfast much better than the dinner IMHO. Nice to meet some new folks and also put faces to names.

Aren't there supposed to be some "official photo's"? How do we get them?

See some of you Saturday at Donnington. I'm camping overnight. let me know if you're around... :)

Glad to hear everyone had a blast!

Pics will be uploaded in a week or so and I will share the link with everyone.

Please don't hesitate to leave a positive review for Magnitude Events on their Facebook page:

Jay did well by us, all I had to do was get the cars there and he made sure we were catered for all day, and the club format was excellent.

I hope we will get enough interest for another one next year!

I just desire a good link in the rotary community. When I joined the community was separated into factions following this tuner or that tuner, and following this car or that car. The RX8OC was a great first exposure and I have been trying to get more engagement from the FD community since owning my FD, and fortunately cars have changed hands a few times and the community is more engaging and less fractured now. It's taken a lot of effort to get that community motivated to socialise and after such a successful track day with RX-7 and RX-8 guys I am hopeful that in the future the communities can mix at more events. It would be good for the UK rotary community in general to support our weird cars as they disappear over time.

If only I got paid by Magnitude as well...

Following the flames video posted earlier, here's some proper track action. Few more to follow.


Split screen of my fastest lap at the day we did in 2018 vs the 2019 Rotary only day. I think that I personally drove better on the 2018 day. Differences between the 2 were:

2018: Car on Apexi ECU tuned to 1.1bar and pretty much hitting that all day. I was suffering with brake fade issues though.
2019: Car on Link tuned higher, but only seeing 1-1.1 bar in most cases due to the ECU compensating for a much hotter day. New K-Sports with Pagid RS29s were doing the business of stopping me consistently all day.



My final stint of the day with Roy (Cib24) in the passenger seat. Turned out to be quite an eventful stint, with hot coolant temps resulting in me learning about some enabled ECU protection.
