We have bacon rolls and drinks and crips
Some people may bring cakes
People can use the cookers to make the bacon rolls themselves, we don't wait on you all day ;)
So if you want to bring anything it is up to you, there is a cafe as well but food can be expensive at these events

Can someone allow me to use their boot space for the duration of the track session, as I shall be bringing all the usual tools and spares that accompany me on track days, just in case anyone needs running repairs before, or after, being on track, unless there is somewhere else I can stack them to keep them safe.

By the way, I'm in garage 27. Feel free to pop in and say hello.

I'll make sure I have a wander round the Club stand at some point. I apologise in advance for all the names I will have forgotten :oops:

I was trying to get the race car ready for this event, but sadly I have run out of time, plus I now have issues with my 4X4 Tribute tow car and because of needing both up n running for Rotarystock in the Netherlands next week I wont be coming along :(

Reece @ LC rotary is going to take my track session so at least you won't loose an RX-8 out there,

Hope you all have fun tomorrow :thumleft:

Shame that, Clive.

I was looking forward to being passed by you :)

I guess I'll have to settle for Reece (and everyone else) passing me.

Hope he doesn't tap me into the gravel due to my wife saying no to his Auto RX8 the other week :D

I'm putting some helmets in the car
Someone wanted to borrow one off me, who was it please, save me looking back through the thread.
I will have another spare as well.

I know we have to attend a track briefing at a certain time but there is no mention of sound testing? Any ideas?

You sure? All I saw was driver briefing 45minutes before session. Nothing about noise testing and time.

I am guessing that as it is officially a race weekend they are not going to be bothered as few if any of the cars on track are going to exceed a race day drive by. That is only supposition on my part.

Probably right. Race cars are all tested in the pit lane before they go out in session 1. My guess is that if anyone sounds loud they may get statically tested. There is very likely to be drive by meters as well, but they will be set at race car level, so you shouldn't trip them.

Sorry to hear that James, I will catch up with you at another show.

Marc : Sound testing should be by the scrutineering bay as I think I said (this is where it was last year)
Ask and I will point it out

Can anyone rig a camera up in my car for our track session, I'm curious to see what I can do in a standard car although a clear lap may not happen ;)
Chris are you not going out on track ? and if not would you put your camera in my car for the session ?
Failing that a stop watch ;)

Pretty much ready to go now (just screwed in the toe hook in the front).
Do we need to go to scrutineering at 9am or is that 45 minutes before the track session itself?
Cheers.
