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 ;)
Pete
Back is a lot better now so probably going out on track now, sorry. But I have Harry's Lap timer on my iPhone which will give you lap times but no video.

I'm first here!

Anyone coming take the SCRATCHERS LANE entrance! Our stand area is just to the right as you enter the gates!

No queuing this way lol

On my way in...currently in the queue of cars!

Had a nice pull against a pair of FD's (I may have drooled over the rotary goodness)

It's not the same without you, Nigel.

Right now, getting back to a healthy state should be your main goal.

Good to hear from you.

Well that's an interesting track! Abit of a stomach turning roller coaster lol :pale:

Apologies for holding some people up and some hard braking!

Great day again by this great Club.

Thanks for all those who organised it. Sorry I couldn't help to setup.

So much for leaving the house by 6:00 with only a 45 minute drive.

Next time I'll bring my tickets ;-)

Was a good day thanks to the club organisers

Met some new people and a previous owner of my car wasn't happy to hear of all the parts that was taken of.

Bring on the next club event

Great day out. Me and boys really enjoyed it. Shame they were dragging me all over the place else I'd spent more time in the area.

Here are some pictures I took.

I enjoyed today, as expected. :D Thanks to all who got there and made it what it was, Caren for cooking the bacon etc, everybody who brought cakes and biscuits and, as always, it was good to see everybody. :thumleft: My feet and legs are killing me now and I'm at serious risk of dozing off for lack of sleep and staying out in daylight for too long.

You were missed Nigel, but concentrate on getting your strength and health back - there will be plenty more events for you to come to after that happens. ;)

The Civic was not part of our group but is a reminder how things can go wrong on a track day. Fortunately the driver was not hurt and such incidents are rare, well rare-ish!

Fantastic day, as expected!

Thanks to everyone that I met and spoke to.... ChrisHolmes, Shagrington, SeanP and a few others that I've already forgotten names of #-o

I did a cheeky little bit of timing with a covert iPhone in the center cubby and clocked a 1:07 before the session ended, which I'm happy with - a 3 second improvement from last year and there was definitely more left in the car and me!

So, thanks guys - can't wait to see you all again :thumright:

:shock: wow... Glad the chap was OK!

Interesting that it has a roll cage, though, as the roof line appears to have... changed slightly. God knows what would have happened had it not had that fitted?
