Hi
If anyone is still at a Donington I left my folding chair, grateful if someone going to Beaulieu could pick it up. That would be great.
Cheers

For a show track time it was actually really good not too many cars out (poor mx5s lol) and plenty of space.

As you say thanks everyone had a fantastic day out more food than I could eat and help when I had a little technical hitch before a track session.

Thanks for all who organised and attended! Credit to the club and community. Long live the dorito :-P

Not at all Rob just left too much in the tank when I topped it up after bleeding the system, didn't noticed until going around track and the pressure pushed it out the expansion bottle down the overflow and sprayed the power steering connectors so when I pulled up and left it to half hour when I came back to do the next track session the ps was errored out and wouldn't work.

Had to take the airbox out and clean the connectors and she was back operational again.

Thank you to everyone who came today and showed their appreciation by eating everything that was put in front of them, black crispy bits and all!
Everyone seemed to have enjoyed their track sessions and our common concern regarding the "fate" of the MX5 owners track session ban if the they had no roll over bars was admirable.
Thank you again everyone for a great day.
