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.

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.
