Yep looking forward to it!

Not after almost cursing it by commenting what a pain free experience I have had in my near 11 months of ownership, and it not starting. Thankfully it was just my weak battery going limp after a succession of short journeys. Something I had been so careful to avoid up to now!

Look forward to hopefully meeting some of you there tomorrow.

Yes at Tesco in Yate, you would have to go past castle coombe to get there from chippenham so maybe not worth it but you are more than welcome to join us. Meeting time is 7.15 by the way.

We are going to Sainsbury's tomorrow morning to pickup last minute things and came across this link in Google maps. So we'll probably jump in with these guys if you wanna join. We'll be there by 6:45

Thanks to everyone who came. I'll hopefully have my photos sorted for tonight. Straight back to work for me so not much time to get it all sorted.

Also if you didn't get a sticker or you'd like another one for 70p postage drop me a pm and I'll have it in its way to you

Had a great time on Saturday, this was my second outing with you lot and suffice to say you'll be seeing more of me and my bright pink chair ;) Big thanks to Adam for organising and for providing the excellent sticker now adorning my rear window.

Jon, how was your first track session? Hopefully you had fun and it went off without incident.

I took a small handful of photos I'll share here at some point very soon.

Cheers all :)

It's taken me some time to get there, a lot of overtime at work has gotten in the way, but here's a selection of photos. A lot from the drift sessions and some from our track session and stand
