Had to fold the mirrors in everytime I went through a garage and had a inch either side of the car spare :!:

The Tesla is wider than the GT86 :shock: , fortunately they have another entrance you can use to filter into the Pitlane =D>

Looking forward to our noise test Ranjan :lol: :lol: :lol:

Lot's of spaces still available at the moment :thumleft: and don't forget, this is an ideal Summer trackday to those members always moaning we only do cold wet days in the Autumn and Winter :lol:

This is currently the only track circuit in the UK that allows a mixture of Diesel, Petrol, LPG, HEV, MEV, PHEV, BEV and Hydrogen vehicles all on the track at the same time =D> =D> =D> =D> =D>

So what are you all waiting for :twisted:

Thought you were doing so well then Chris :thumright:

When I was last there, had to rev the GT86 up to 6k and my car just past their noise limit #-o

Think Salokin was reving his car to 5.5k :-k

Hope this all helps in your decision Steve [-o<

It was 90db when I did a day with the same TDO last year. Think the test was around 6k. I don't fancy your chances Steve sadly.

I want to book on to this day, but am holding off until i have any faith that I'll have a healthy RX8 this summer
