I think you’ll still give it a tickle if it’s dry…

I doubt there will be any tickling, maybe some twitching given the weather forecast!

If you have or register for the licence required then you're welcome to hop in for a passenger ride with me 😁

So much for grouping marques together Dan, I am E1 and you have been placed in M1.

Not your fault Dan when the organisers said they would group people by Marques in the paddock. Anyway it could work to our advantage as you could hop in with me and vice versa as E cars will be called up the hill well before M. Once the our first runs are completed we will have an idea whether we would have time to do that.

Pics and videos. Shame you left early Chris, it dried out nicely and was dead, bought another few runs and ran them back to back!

I decided not to book any additional runs as I am going to book onto one of their training days instead.

I have a video of you "launching" which is on my phone so will add that later with some photos of a couple of cars.

Here you go photos and several cars starting their runs including our own Dr.Frankenrex

Had a cracking day, was walking back over the bridge and all I could hear was the rotary brap as Dan was leaving in the distance. I have brilliant shots if any could advise me how to put them up? I've tried to work it but conan did take me to pub afterwards. 😅

What a fantastic afternoon we had at Prescott
We should definitely do this as a club event in future
You can drive the hill with a passenger just as if driving on the road without European cotton wool regulations ;)
Mercedes bumped into a friend with a mark 1 caddy that definitely looks like a rat pickup
I enjoyed drooling over the Ultima with 6.2 Chevy, supercharged, 1,000 Hp
