A very enjoyable day, both out on track and socially. Really good to see and catch up with everyone, especially those I've not see for quite a while. Journey home, in convoy with Ian.M was uneventful and the tiredness is now beginning to really kick in :sleep: :sleep: :sleep:

Yes it was an iPhone 5 SE which apparently has the later iPhone 8 processor or something like that!

What a fantastic day we all had on the track with no issues with our respective cars =D> =D> =D> =D>

A big thank you goes to ChrisHolmes for changing all the Brake Pads on the GT86 between 7.45am to 9.35am =D>

Yes missed the sighting laps, but wasn't too bothered as this was the 18th time for me :shock: , have driven the track in all types of weather including snow over the last few years :thumright:

This was the 69th trackday in the Toyota GT86 since 31st August 2013 :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:

The company was good all day =D> and it was great catching up with Haydn :snog:

Many thanks to Pete aka Boston Rotary for using his garage for most of the day :thumleft: :thumleft:

Roll on the next trackday for me, which will be on the 18th August in the Tesla :twisted: and will be the 81st trackday since 2011 :shock:

Once again many thanks everyone for coming along and flying the club flag =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D>

I thought I had taken a few of yours but I don't, sorry. I didn't get Nigel's car either. Pete's foam sills and John's haunted brakes must have had me too distracted.
