That's not a problem Nick. Even better if you can bring your own mugs ;)

Are they staying for food after though? Not a problem, but I'll need to up the table booking, so let me know.
Apologies for late response, no food required

Weather update: BBC suggest 6% to 26% rain possible between 11.00 and 16.00 8)
Met Office still suggest 30% chance of rain between 12.00 and 17.00 :evil:
How can they possibly differ by such an amount and expect people to believe either one :roll: #-o

Well, I've decided I'm only bringing worn Federals, so it's bound to rain ;) :lol:

As we slid away a bit early I just wanted to say it was a very enjoyable day yesterday made even better by attending as part of the club.
Thanks to Malcolm for organisation and refreshments and also the passenger laps :thumright:

Another thoroughly enjoyable day at Snetterton, made all the better by good company and fine weather :thumleft:

Again, apologies for lack of the usual garage space. I had requested 2 garages from MSVT, but only found out we'd been allocated only 1 the afternoon before the event, when the garage plan had been finalised. Luckily, the rain held off (apart from a 10 minute light drizzle!) so it wasn't too bad.

Nick, I was very concerned when your car (driven by your mate Rob at the time) didn't return on a Red Flag stoppage. I was very relieved when it turned out to be the well known fuel starvation issue that Rob hadn't experienced before, so sensibly pulled off the circuit as a precaution to be recovered.

Good to unexpectedly meet and chat to Chris (project-rx8 on here) and his brother Richard too. Nice, stripped out RX-8 with LC-Rotary Bridgeport that sounded gorgeous and seemed to be flying round the track. Chris was unaware we had the club group booking so, Chris, if you are looking at this, remember to subscribe to these ;)

and you'll get notifications of all planned track outings :D

A select group of just 4 of us (me, Harrizone, Ian.M and TerryH) went off to enjoy a very pleasant meal at the nearby Angel Inn, which meant we missed the busy traffic and it made the journey home that much more enjoyable, especially as Ian.M had driven up in KIMI 2 (1983 RX-7 1st Gen, pic below) and he followed me home for much of the journey in convoy =D>

I've found a 2m26.2 sec lap from my camera, from my very last session of the day when I drove around without a passenger. I'll upload that shortly, and it's reasonably consistent with my fastest Snetterton lap of 2m25.6 that I set earlier in March.

Here's my quickest lap of the day, at 4.30pm. I had to short shift a bit 3rd-4th as coolant alarm (110 degrees) can be heard beeping...

Just to reiterate what others have said superb day in good company :thumleft: . Massive thanks to 'bigpete' for allowing me the use of his car to relieve my withdrawal symptoms of no longer being able to attend with my own car =D> . Felt that on the day I was not performing well and appeared to be braking earlier, missing apex's #-o and lacking sufficient courage to keep my foot in around Coram with only a dismal 91 indicated :( . Despite my failings still had a great day. Thanks all =D> .
