Brands Hatch 29th July (evening)

Post by NeMFO » Fri Jul 31, 2020 10:12 pm

Popped along to this one this week as I wanted to experience Paddock Hill Bend for myself. It was organised by Open Track and I wasn’t great impressed. The sign in process was on line and didn’t work too well me, my additional driver and one passenger had to log in again on the day it also ended earlier than originally advertised so I missed out on my last session. It was on the indy circuit and was very busy.

I’m posting this after the event because there was another 8 at the event and the driver was given a hard time about the volume of his exhaust so we didn’t get a lot of time to chat because of this. I just wanted to reach out, say Hi and find out how he got on.

Hi bud

That was me, they would not let me get on. Still waiting to contact opentrack for my refund. No response on my mail or calls :(

Was hoping to go on the 4/8 as well as the dB is 105, hopefully I will be okay.

Sorry to hear that Ramesh. I saw you made some of the track photos so hoped they’d let it go but didn’t see you again in person so wasn’t sure. Hope you get satisfaction and I look forward to bumping into you again soon. You have a lovely looking car btw.

Neil

Ouch! Full day at Snetterton with garage cost the same. Brands is sooo expensive in the Summer.

I know but it’s an hours drive and I do not have to take a day off. So in the grand scheme it works out :)
