Post by Ranjan » Tue Nov 17, 2020 5:18 pm

Just booked this while sitting in a boring meeting:

Have not decided which car but I have not used the car for ages.

p.s., edited as reminded that I regretted advertising what I was going to do before, so......

Ok, if they let me take a passenger, I will get him/her to take a sneaky video using their phone.

Unfortunately, the dash does not have any flat surfaces to put a suction pad on except just above the glove box and that is set too low to give a decent view.

About to set off for track day tomorrow.
Weather is a balmy 27 degrees and sunny tomorrow, for the track day :yeah:

Decided not to use original car as tempting fate so will use something faster :finger: :race:

Please do let us know how you find it. Hope you have fun!

I really miss California. In a normal year I'd be out there now. Can't wait for them to let me back into the country.

For some reason my first thought when he said faster was fighter jet. Followed by, where would the number plate be????

I hope I do not regret doing this........but I am going to post a picture.

Some background; my staff really gave me hell for posting here the car I was going to use for the track day and they were right to do so.
Also, Nigel's idea of posting pictures from dealers stuck a cord.......

So best of both worlds; I have borrowed a car from a dealer on the pretext of testing it before I buy and am going to take that on track.
I have had my eye on this before so the dealer knows he might get a sale, hence the 2 day loan.
