Thanks chris, it was very fun. From what I can tell I got overtaken by 4 cars but then went back around 2 of them then over took 3 other cars so I ended up a place above where I started. I’m happy with that.

Mallory park is one of my favourite tracks because of the size of it. I have done it twice with a bike and I really like its flows.

Afternoon all. Do we know who the copper red 8 belongs to that went out on track at 11:20 with the main group? He was shooting 3 foot flames every time he went past the grandstand just before the pits. It was a glorious sight. =D>

Japfest 2018 at Donington Sat 30th June -UPDATED RENDEZVOUS TIME

Post by GreySilver Beast » Sun Jul 01, 2018 7:48 pm

Well that was a fantastic hot day at Japfest and was a fabulous day with like minded Members all enjoying each others company =D> =D> =D> =D>

Many thanks to Karen and Dave for their Kitchen Duties at this Event as the Bacon Butties were fantastic :thumleft:

So looks like we will be returning back next year with an even bigger Stand Boys and Girls =D>

Was fantastic seeing New Members enjoying RX-8OC way of thinking =D> and nice to have none of our Members revving their engines like some of the cars on other Stands :!: :!:

Kelsey issues regarding the Tickets this year was out of their hands but hopefully they have learnt from this and the problems they had won't happen again :!:

Once again thank you for supporting your Car Club :thumleft:

May I congratulate the Events team on yet another superb event (despite not having any sauce for the bacon butties).

Thoroughly enjoyed the limited time I had on track, and thanks to Chris Holmes for the passenger ride and reciprocating. I'll post the videos up soon.

Craner and full throttle is superb, and the federals really allow us to make full use of the whole width of the circuit (and more, ahem!).

I can’t seem to be able to post my track video up on the forum, it gives me a message saying incorrect file format ( never had a problem before) I have also tried to post it on YouTube and the copy the link, but YouTube tells me the video is too long.ffs it’s 21 mins. Is there a limit to the length of video you can post?

As per others comments, Thanks again to the events team for arranging this event. Bacon sandwiches were great, but then again I was my own chef as I caught the tent at break time :D

Didn't get on circuit, but enjoyed watching those who took part from the grandstand at Hollywood.

Took a good plod around... According to the phone ended up walking around 7.5 miles!

And as a bonus, Google Maps took me via some brilliant and fairly quiet A/B roads that allowed me to have a fun drive there and back :race:

Until next time :thumleft:

Eventually got my track time up on YouTube. The last 2 track sessions I have done has resulted in my coolant temps reaching 114 degrees, according to Dashcommand, with my temperature needle hitting the 3/4 mark. So had to slow down for half a lap at a time in the last few laps. So obviously got some kind of issue :shock:
