Really good day on track even if it was a rush to get the car ready, rear bumper came off just after church corner so I caused a red flag oops. Then I got a black flag lol. Over all tho a great day with the Rx8 owners club members 👍 good to see you all again and catch up.

Great day today, big thank you from me to Ranjan.

I wouldn't have normally picked to go to Thruxton but it was well worth it and I will go back.

Just need to save to fix the suspension now 😂 I seem to be 40mm lower on the drivers side I don't think it was the weight of me that broke it. 👀

Fastest Lap 1.38.28:


A little moment through Church:


One of the morning sessions with a few RX-8s on track:


Session with Olly as passenger, a 1.38.50 lap and fuel surge:


Afternoon session with one RX-8 and a lot of Caterfields on track:


Final Session hot laps only (due to lots of cool downs being required in the peak heat). Some decent laps:

You were coming up behind me on the 3rd video but at 07:50 you can see my B pillar trim of the left hand side starting to come off so I slowed down and limped back to the pits. I manage to save the trim by getting back to the pits.

Looks like the glue the repairers used melted in the recent heat. I had noticed it before the event and had a shoddy attempt to fix it with gorilla glue ( slightly damaged the trim when I did that, so easy to do ). Surprisingly thats the only bit that held, now I've got to file off any gorilla glue carefully off my B pillar trim garnish without damaging it and then I think I'll find a body repair shop to fix it all properly with some high temp glue!
