Xtreme Photography by Nick Barrett or RBPS Photography by Robert Baxter are far superior for Track Photo's =D> =D> =D> =D>

Adam's photo's were far better to remember the day :snog:

Must have been me driving in that photo, dominating the kerb! :lol:

Thanks Nigel, although he has a much better lens!

Great Cover montages Alan. Two things I envy about you: 1) Your video editing skills and 2) you are quicker than me through the bends as your braking less / later.

Thanks :thumleft: I still can't keep up with Pete though. The video editing takes waay too long...

I was hoping to try and stay with you as long as i could, not knowing until afterwards that your car wasn't running well for that session.

I was pleased with how late I was on the brakes at Croft. One of my high points of the day was letting that blue 911 past on the straight and then immediately out-braking him in to Tower (8:15 on the Final Session video). There were a few bends that I struggled with, but on the whole I think I managed to get the hang of Croft better than at some other circuits, so it was a satisfying day.
