If it was a weekday I'd be there in a shot blagging a passenger ride. Instead I'm on kids party duty. Have fun :D

Lovely day for a spot of tyre smoking.

PSA: tyres that keep throwing cords off are about to pop and will render the car undriveable until that time:

Oh yeah, fantastic day really. So much more seat time compared to Santa Pod.
Sweaty man in a box doing free tyre changes also *Nigel suddenly becomes DriftKing*

Only sadtiems was Bryn breaking a coolant blanking cap on the cylinder head, though it was a nice excuse to get hands dirty and sort it. But that did mean he was out so I couldn't play with him as much as I wanted. Next time!

First time being out in the dry for 10 months so took a couple of laps to get back into it. I really think more folk should give it a go, so much more involved than track driving.

I'm sure we can pool together £10 each and buy a drift pig RX-8.
