Just to add to the positive comments already....
Thanks to all the organisers and everyone who attended. This is a great car club and the social events are nice and relaxed and a pleasure to be part of.
So far MX5 events don’t compare! Think I’ll stay on board with you guys as long as you’ll have me.
Also, as I get more eager to go on track it may well be the case the MX5 with it lack of roll bars may have to be replaced. I’ve had 2 Rx8’s previously, I may well be back for another when finances permit!
Didn’t take many photos yesterday, but I liked this one.......Image

Well it looks like we all had a good time together and those who ventured on the track also enjoyed themselves too =D> =D> =D> =D>

A special thanks must go to our Chairman aka
brix79 for driving all the way up from South Wales =D>

Many thanks must go too Jackie.M for helping with setting up and working in the Kitchen despite being in pain for most of the day :kiss:

Many thanks too SeeJay for leading the Convoy to the Show =D> =D> =D> =D>

Finally many thanks to those members who stayed behind and helped us pack up the Club Stand =D>

The Events Team really enjoyed watching everyone smiling and enjoying themselves on the day, which is what makes this all worth while for us to organise these events :P

Many thanks for the photo's and video's so far and keep them coming boys and girls =D>

Next time I go it with you the focus will be lines and not speed and you WILL listen. Considering this was only your third time out on track then you did do well catching the car in the chicane on each lap!

Page 4 of the programme has a photo of me in my trusty red RX8 at Silverstone. The Lambo Is not about to have me for lunch as we are entering Brooklands at the end of the session. That said the rate he came up behind me was scary!

You could interpret that photo as "you've just overtaken the lambo, round the outside of the corner" ;)
