Had a great day, really tired
Separate thread for all the pics etc as usual.
Thanks
Pete

PS: Now I've been round to the shop and got a bottle of red wine to chill with :)
Big thanks to everyone who turned up today at Castle Combe and made it such a great day (members and non members alike) :thumleft: (Mazda,s and non Mazda,s alike) =D> which makes it such a great car club community.
Special thanks to Pat-Caren and crew, Dave 2112, Leroy-Rachael, Sagarth for help setting up etc.
It was another great day with everyone, first track session was nice and dry and the second was a thunder storm which was a great experience.
Track etiquette was impeccable from what I saw in our sessions which is more than can be said for some of the other sessions and the amount of damage and stoppages during the day #-o
Nigel was of course missed and there was more cake than usual left over ;)
See you all soon

Another great day out at Combe, the last session was certainly entertaining in the monsoon. My new rain sport tyres were excellent :thumright: thanks to all who make these track days possible :thumleft:

Glad you all enjoyed the day, despite the rain. Blyton Sprint was great but we also had heavy rain which ultimately closed the track early. It's a great track and hard to get right.

Thanks to everyone for making this such a great day. Really enjoyed my track time, and the bacon, and the cakes, and thanks to Phil for taking me out for a passenger ride during the monsoon thunderstorm.

Driving in the Monsoon yesterday at Combe, was a little tentative at first, but then began to trust the Uniroyals in the wet. Folly, Avon rise and understandably Camp corner were taken a bit sedately as there was rivers running over the track!! but all good fun.

Here is a link to some of the photos I took on the day - I have a few more to upload which I will get done sometime this week...

They are not the best quality - I used my crappy smartphone, think its time to invest in a proper camera!

I bought my set from camskill as well this time last year, they cost less than £60 per corner fitted which is ok for the cost, got about a 1500 miles out of the rears with some heavy use including a couple of trackdays and a 4 person track limits day.
Imo the compound is too soft for driving hard in the dry, you can literally see the rubber being left behind and the tc lights up more often than with my other tyres (Dunlop SP1's which are over double the price).
They are also quite noisy as well but for the price and in the wet ut can't be beaten.
