Explore the limits of the car and driver, and enjoy the car the way it was meant to be driven. Open pitlane track days, car control days and driver training. The car is the star!

GSB-TDU = Car Activity thread with Photo's etc....

Thought I would share my full list with everyone and also new members can see what some of us club members get up to within the RX-8OC when they aren't on the forum reading and posting on topics :thumleft:

Harrizone and casey got me into trackdays =D> , even if Malcolm did make me sick :puke: on two laps of Brands Hatch in 2009 :lol:

Remember going in Jang's brand new Ford Focus RS300 and felt terribly ill just on one lap of the RAF Valley trackday :puke: , Jan came into the Paddock Area quickly before I threw up in his new car :lol:

Just survived going round the Nurburgring as a passenger in the Saab Convertible with the roof down on the sighing laps with Toru Watanbe a couple of years ago before feeling ill #-o

This is why I rarely except any passenger rides going round a track at high speed :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Did the first Car Activity Day in 2008 in my RX-8 =D> & did the first Trackday in 2011 in my brand new Mazda 3 MPS =D> , although was scheduled to do the first trackday in the RX-8 at Brands Hatch December 2010, but it got cancelled because of heavy snow :(
