SPA in April

Post by Ranjan » Tue Jan 12, 2016 9:31 pm

Guys,

I have booked SPA for 8th and 9th April; if any of you are around that area at that time and fancy some passenger rides or even a drive come on down and I will sort something out; or just come and say hello and share a slice of cake.

Ranjan.

Can we keep this on topic. Your messages of mutual love are better suited to PMs

Nooooo
That wasn,t canoodling,
I was merely holding her up as she had come over weak at the knees and swooned into my arms.
I would like to take all the credit for her condition but I suspect that spinning your TVR at 140 mph+ may have contributed to her trembling thighs.
Can I borrow it again ;)

Pete,

Likely story :lol:

Of course you can borrow it again; surviving the TVR trying to kill you was you passing your "O" Levels, now it is time to take your "A" Levels.
I have a F12 that is much more proficient at trying to kill you than the TVR; 730 bhp with the traction-control off is frantic, took me a whole day at Ascari to tame the beast.

I will bring it to SPA in October if my wife ever gives me back the keys :(

Guys,

Due to business commitments I have having to pull out of this SPA trip, not happy but there it is.....

SPA is becoming like Croft for me, a jinxed circuit; I have never ever won a race at SPA, not even got on the podium :x :crybaby:
