Hi all. I will be at the services between 7 and 7:10.

On another note I seem to have 3 of the below, my guess is one is for entry to the ground, another is for entry to the track and I’m not sure what the third one is, they all have unique numbers and one is blank with car reg.

Guys, one last check as I have never been on a track with a car... only bikes. When they say legs and arms covered can it be jeans and some sort of long sleeve shirts/coat or must it be something more hard wearing as I don’t have any coveralls or anything like that.

Not sure if I’ll make it to Donington Services by 7am as I can’t get away until 5.30.
If I don’t make it I’ll see you on the stand

Another fantastic day with fellow members. Thanks to Nigel for all the behind the scenes booking etc: and of course maintaining the thread by the second 24/7!

Thanks to Karen and Dave for cooking the excellent bacon rolls. Note to self is for a bread knife and buttering knife next time to save hack sawing the buns and buttering buns with a plastic spoon, and not to forget the sauces!

Donington is a great circuit and I discovered that turning into Redgate at 90mph late is not a good combination and was followed by an excursion into the gravel at c70mph then back onto the track at c30mph. Advice from SeanP my passenger was "try using some braking! The video is processing now and the time to pay attention is 11:22:39

I passenger end with Sean later and once we got rid of the point and squirt early braking Civics he showed me a much faster way to drive, plus a little bit of grass tracking at Redgate!

Great to meet up with Andy 1969 after almost 3 years since we met on the NC500 Scottish trip and also great to see Ben and Kerr who had travelled all the way from Scotland.

Video is still cooking so I am off to crack open a cool beer while I wait.

Thanks to Ben Taylor (not from Scotland version) for the loan of your trolley jack and great to meet several new faces too. Ooh! Video is done so it's now open beer and upland to YouTube time.

Thank you RX8OC for the great day and to Nigel for arranging this meet. I really enjoyed myself on track and have my GoPro downloading the footage as we speak.

Cheers All.....
As usual I spent more time wandering around the show than socialising, but as always the bacon roll and your smiley faces contributed to a great day out!
Chris’s trip into the gravel reminded me why, even though considering track time, I once again bottled it. I like my car in one piece far too much!
